Ever wonder who the pink boat in Oxford Circus was named after?

This podcast focuses on the new book 'Who Killed Berta Caceres' by Nina Lakhani which is a compelling thriller-like read based on the murder of the brave indigenous Berta. She died for fighting the development of a dam using World Bank funding in her region in Honduras.

In this week’s episode Jessica interviews two inspirational women: Helen Norberg-Hodge, the founder of Local Futures; and Jyoti Fernandes, from the Land Workers Alliance and La Via Campesina. We talk about why our futures need to be local rather than global and why that truth is more evident now than ever.

In particular we focus on food production and why small-scale, agro-ecological farming will help heal the planet and the biosphere, provide satisfying jobs, and make the country more resilient in times of crisis.

Jessica’s co-presenter this week is Mothiur Rahman, who is part of XR’s Political and Visioning Circle as well as XR Muslims.

Extinction Rebellion has three demands. 1) Tell the Truth – Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change. 2) Act Now – Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025. 3) Beyond Politics – Government must create and be led by the decision of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

7-year-old Zane Gbangbola died after flood water carried the fatally toxic chemical hydrogen cyanide from a nearby landfill site into his home in Surrey. A Ministry of Defense whistleblower revealed it, but the government denies it. How can we get justice for the UK's first victim of climate change? Plus, we hear from Lola Perrin – cofounder of XR artists - on how Extinction Rebellion is supporting Zane’s parents, Kye and Nicole, in their fight for justice.

Welcome to a new XR Podcast series: The Best of Rebel Radio. Here we take some of the wonderful content coming out of Rebel Radio and edit it into a podcast so you can listen again whenever you like.

For our first Best of Rebel Radio Podcast, hosts Sue Wheat and Seb O'Connell speak to Ann Pettifor about the global financial system and how international and historical decision making have prioritised the rich and corporations over people and planet. As a result, climate change and ecological breakdown are intrinsically connected to our economic and financial systems. These systems need to be changed if we stand any chance of preventing climate and ecological catastrophe.

Sue and Seb also speak to Hilary Powell and Dan Edelstyn about the social injustice of our monetary system and how they are trying to raise awareness and create change through their community project The Bank Job, which Ann Pettifor herself has visited.

Ann Pettifor is a political economist and author whose latest book The Case for the Green New Deal, is a plan to re-imagine the economy to protect life on earth. She is currently a director of Policy Research in Macroeconomics (PRIME). Ann is also well-known for predicting the global financial crisis of 07-08 and spearheading the historic Jubilee 2000 campaign.

Artist Hilary Powell and filmmaker/musician Dan Edelstyn are creators of the Optimistic Foundation. Their latest film, 'The Bank Job', is a community driven feature, participatory bank and playful act of economic education and change. Through radical imagination, they seek to open up possibilities for more just ways of organising and living when everyday life and democracy are corroded.

Correction: at the end of the podcast, we refer to next episode's guest as Helena Norberg. Her name is Helena Norberg-Hodge, and we apologise for the error.

Many people in the climate movement wonder why it’s so hard to get our message through. Could part of the problem be buried in the very language we use?

In this episode we’re talking to Jeremy Lent, the author of The Patterning Instinct: A Cultural History of Humanity’s Search for Meaning. His work investigates the patterns of thought that have led our civilization to its current crisis of sustainability. In this conversation we discuss the key metaphors that govern how we think and why we need a paradigm shift.

1) Tell the Truth – Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.

2) Act Now – Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.

3) Beyond Politics – Government must create and be led by the decision of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

We need to act now if we want to avoid overwhelming climate and ecological breakdown. So why does the government tell us we’ve got until 2050?

In this episode we’re exploring the government’s 2050 net zero emissions target and why that timeline endangers not only humans, but every other species on the planet.

We’ll talk about the science that shows us we need to act much sooner, and discuss some of the political and economic obstacles to achieving a more ambitious target - like Extinction Rebellion's second demand to halt biodiversity loss & achieve net zero emissions by 2025.

You’ll hear a conversation from the October 2019 Rebellion with Scientists for XR, including Kate Jeffrey, a Professor of Behavioural Neuroscience at University College London; Scott Archer-Nicholls, an Atmospheric Chemist at the University of Cambridge; Peter Spooner, a Paleoclimate Researcher at University College London; and Sven, a project director for climate change adaptation projects.

This episode also features a discussion with Professor Kevin Anderson, a Professor of Energy and Climate Change. He holds a joint chair in the School of Engineering at the University of Manchester and the Centre for Sustainability and the Environment at Uppsala University in Sweden.

Economics is not a side show in our lives. The coronavirus has shown that.

But, what comes next?

This episode is all about empowering you to take on one of the main influencers of our economy, and therefore the planet – the Finance Sector – through education and activism.

We talk to Vince Knowles and Rathbone Greenbank Investments about the investment industry; University of Bristol Professors Alvin Birdi and Chris Preist about the insurance industry; and XR Money Rebellion about what you can do.

This episode was recorded outside an XR Finance learn in, in Bristol, on Saturday March 7th.

In this episode we’re talking to a world leader in the climate movement, Christiana Figueres. Christiana was the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change from 2010 to 2016 and is credited with securing the Paris Agreement in 2015.

She is joined by her co-author Tom Rivett-Carnac, who was her Senior Political Adviser at the UN and now works with her on a podcast called "Outrage and Optimism". Together they wrote 'The Future We Choose".

*The Extinction Rebellion Podcast would like to apologise for mistakenly referring to Christiana and Tom's podcast as Global Optimism. The podcast is called "Outrage and Optimism" but can be found on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @GlobalOptimism.*
