TYPE 2: Episode 014 - Lucy Siegle by Looking Sideways Action Sports Podcast published on 2020-11-10T18:47:11Z Type 2 is a podcast from Looking Sideways in association with Patagonia that explores the intersection between the outdoors, action sports and activism. This week’s guest is Lucy Siegle, a writer, journalist, broadcaster and film-maker who has been one of the UK’s foremost voices on issues of nature and climate for almost two decades now. Today, she co-hosts the So Hot Right Now podcast, is a trustee for Surfers Against Sewage, Chair of the Real Circularity Coalition and is still a hugely prolific journalist and broadcaster on the subject. As you might imagine from that resume, this breadth of experience has given Lucy a unique perspective on some favourite Type 2 themes. We caught up in early November 2020 and had a really fascinating conversation that took in the psychology of change when it comes to climate action, the best way of communicating your values in an increasingly polarised world, why the 2020 US Presidential election is the century’s pivotal climate-related event, and why the fast fashion industry is emblematic of the wider challenges we face. And, of course, we discussed Lucy’s own inspiring path, which in many ways mirrors the paradigm of the wider climate conversation. There’s a lot to take in here, in a wide-ranging chat that sees Lucy laser in on detail and zoom out to provide priceless, panoramic context on the current state of play. There Is also some timeless advice on personal activism from one of the wisest heads in the game. Big thanks to Lucy for coming on the show - hope you enjoy the episode.
