Leading climate change podcast, Outrage + Optimism will launch its eighth season with Al Gore as special guest.
The podcast is a weekly guide for anyone who wants to make sense of the complexity that surrounds the conversation of climate change.
Hosted by Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac – who famously helped deliver the historic Paris Agreement on Climate Change in 2015 – as well as sustainable economy expert Paul Dickinson, the show is the leading, global, independent climate podcast.
Launching the new series of incisive conversations between the hosts and key leaders from inside and outside the climate community, first guest Al Gore will take part in a high-octane interview.
Topics covered in the series include:
- Deep dives into tricky issues including carbon removals and the shipping industry’s response to net zero.
- A special mini-series jointly curated by Christiana and Isabel Cavelier exploring our relationship with ‘nature’.
- High quality coverage and expert analysis of key climate events such as UNGA, Climate Week NYC, Latin America and Caribbean Climate Week, and the ever-contentious COP28.
Co-host Christiana Figueres says: “As the climate crisis intensifies, so must our response. Join us in Outrage and Optimism as we try to make sense of the signals amidst the noise on all things climate this season.”
The new season of Outrage + Optimism launches from 7 September on all podcast platforms.
