In brief: Sorry not sorry about the title; it was too good to pass up. I have Desi Doyen of The Green News Report on to talk Paris Climate Agreement optimism and Amelia McDonell-Parry of The Frisky on to talk about everything under the sun — including, obviously, our shared ADHD.

I care about the climate even though I don’t get the chance to directly advocate for it much unless it’s brought into economic or reproductive justice through intersectionality. I was so glad to have a climate expert friend to call on so I could bring you this break down of what happened in Paris! Desi Doyen is fantastic and if you haven’t listened to The Green News Report which she produces and hosts with Brad Friedman, let this interview be your reason for subscribing to their short, weekly update.
Amelia McDonell-Parry and I talked about everything from where it’s “appropriate” to get your news and cultural commentary, weaving, self-care, anxiety, depression, ADHD, the stigma around medication, and ADHD. (See what I did there?) I was delighted she found the time to chat as I have enjoyed writing for her at The Frisky immensely over the past year.
