We recently discovered the work of Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson via @intersectionalenvironmentalist and have been hooked on her Instagram feed (@ayanaeliza) ever since. A self-described “marine biologist, policy nerd, [and] Brooklyn native,” Johnson is also the founder of the Urban Ocean Lab Think Tank and our new favourite podcast: How to Save a Planet.

In this podcast, hosts Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and journalist Alex Blumberg ask the big questions about what we need to do to solve the current climate crisis – and how we can actually get it done. They touch on important issues like intersectional environmentalism and “scour the Earth for solutions… [to] figure out how to build the future we want.

In a recent episode of the podcast, for example, called ‘Black Lives Matter and the Climate’, Alex and Ayana look at how the Black Lives Matter movement – one of the largest movements in US history – has had environmental justice as part of its policy platform from the very beginning. They break down exactly why the fight for racial justice is critical to saving the planet, and what the broader climate movement can learn from the Black Lives Matter movement.
