About this Episode

Doctor Richard di Natale is many things, beyond being a general practitioner and public health specialist. He's an Australian Senator in the Federal Government, and leader of the Australian Greens Party, a powerful third party. The Greens are a fascinating party with an amazing story, and this episode could easily have dived solely into politics, as Richard of course has a ringside perspective. But, instead of doing that, this is a conversation with a powerful politician about being a person, who, in the face of climate change, is just as fragile and small as everyone else. We talk about how Richard keeps motivated, what he's doing in his life to be sustainable and have a lighter footprint, and how he feels about the future. But it's also extremely hopeful, and Richard's perspective is a welcome dose of optimism, and practical pragmatism. He lays out a way forward. We greatly appreciated his time, and generousity, and we're so happy to be bringing this to you.
