What might it mean to reorient ‘growth’ towards all that enriches and enhances life—rather than using arbitrary measures like “GDP” and “economic growth”, which have become completely disassociated from our collective wellbeing? In this episode, we explore the topics I wrote about in my Substack piece, “Reorienting Growth”.

Episode 1 — Earth Needs Therapy
The fixation on CO2 emissions in climate discourses has been extremely reductive—also allowing for the crisis to be capitalized off of for ulterior motives. In my debut episode, we go over my Substack article, “Earth Needs Therapy,” which invites us to use a relational lens to better understand our socio-ecological crises—and what is needed for our collective healing.
