This week, Babita and Katy meet poet and former climate activist Emma Must. Emma was awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize for her efforts towards land protection, which included a period of detention in Holloway Prison as one of the ‘Twyford Seven’. She explains her decision to stop front-line campaigning and why she has turned to the power of the written word in the battle against the climate crisis.
In the episode, Emma reads from her first full length poetry collection, “The Ballad of Yellow Wednesday”.
