This week we are bringing you something different - we are joining in with podcast feeds across the world to bring you Everybody Now, a podcast about climate emergency in a time of systemic injustice and a global pandemic. Everybody Now Climate Emergency and Sacred Duty We’ve caused a turning point in the Earth’s natural history. Everybody Now is a podcast about what it means to be human on the threshold of a global climate emergency, in a time of systemic injustice and runaway pandemics. Scientists, activists, farmers, poets, and theologians talk bravely and frankly about how our biosphere is changing, about grief and hope in an age of social collapse and mass extinction, and about taking action against all the odds.
