Episode 277 features Sarah, a Māori wahine living on Dharawal Country, and Criminology researcher, on Indigenous critiques of the movie Don’t Look Up (Netflix) and why Indigenous knowledge is so important in creating effective responses to climate change and environmental problems generally. This discussion builds on our last episode, which covered Don’t Look Up and also the effectiveness of different individual actions for the climate.
