Dr. Britt Wray is an author and researcher working at the forefront of climate change and mental health. This week the fellas chat with Britt about her new book Generation Dread and how the existential crisis of climate change is having an effect on all of our mental health. What is climate anxiety? How does it show up in our everyday life? How can we deal with it? Although this is some heavy subject matter, Britt is a beam of sunshine (but not in the “this is too much sunshine and the polar ice caps are melting" kind of way). More like the beam of sunshine on a day in the future when carbon emissions are zero and everyone is awarded free candy for life for their efforts, kind of way.
