Introducing the What We Need Now podcast
September 16, 2020
What We Need Now is a podcast where people who are on the front lines of sacrifice, environmental disaster, and marginalization share their experiences and truths.
On the first episode of What We Need Now, we explore Environmental racism and how COVID-19 has made its impacts even greater. We interview multi-disciplinary performance artist, activist/community organizer, and writer Adwoa Addae about why we need to feel to get through it all. Adwoa Addae (she/they) is Jamaican-born multidisciplinary performance artist, activist/community organizer, writer, and free-being.
During the height of a global pandemic back in April, a group of inspired Greenpeace staff came together with a vision to form a podcast that focused on discussing issues at the intersection of race and the environment. Seeing the need to enliven Greenpeace’s engagement efforts to Black, Indigenous, and people of color, the team was able to turn the idea of a podcast into a reality.
