This episode looks at the history of Extinction Rebellion, its success in Europe and its organisational aims and modes. Hosts Jackson and James are also joined at the 20 minute mark by Dr Christine Canty, an XR Families Organiser to talk about non-violent direct action, children and the climate crisis and disrupting business as usual.
