Evergreen Action’s Jamal Raad: The West Coast Is on Fire
Part of a Series
This week, Evergreen Action’s Jamal Raad joins the pod from Seattle to discuss the devastation wrought by wildfires on the West Coast, how climate change is intensifying wildfire season, and how activists are successfully mainstreaming the issue to make it a top concern for lawmakers and voters alike. Plus, Daniella and Jesse discuss the U.S. crossing another grim COVID-19 milestone, the latest upheaval at the Justice Department, and how it’s all translating on the campaign trail.
