A few of the Dissent projects I’m most proud of:
The Right to a Home
Special section of Dissent, Fall 2018, co-edited with historian Thomas J. Sugrue
Hot & Bothered
A podcast on climate politics for the 99%, co-hosted by Kate Aronoff and Daniel Aldana Cohen and produced/edited by me.
Season 1 spans January 2016–February 2017, with dispatches on energy municipalization in London; the fight against oil-industry abuses in Nigeria; housing and environmental justice in the Bay Area; the prospects for a Green New Deal; and more. Plus a few bonus episodes, in collaboration with our Canadian friends at Cited.
Season 2 spans April–June 2020, i.e. the beginning of the Covid-19 era. Guests include Raj Patel, on hunger and the pandemic; Bethany McLean, on the burst of the fracking bubble; and Jasson Perez, J. Mijin Cha, and Patrick Houston, on the uprisings for racial justice.
