Hosted by Tim DeChristopher and Peter Bowden, the Climate Workshop Podcast is dedicated to creating a space where we can work through the challenges of the climate crisis together.
Producing this show will allow us to share the conversations that we’ve been having behind the scenes with leaders from across the climate movement with a larger podcast community. We want to make these conversations accessible and to also expand them. We’re in this together and we think we should be talking together.
But in order to for us to devote the time required to produce this show long term, we need reliable and consistent support.
You can sponsor the Climate Workshop Podcast through Patreon, a crowdfunding platform for content creators. Through this Patreon page you can specify the amount of support you want to give for each new episode we release. You can also set a cap on the monthly total. We are aiming to release two episodes per month. You can choose from the default levels or set your own when you become a Patron.
Thank you for your support and helping to make the Climate Workshop Podcast possible. We are excited to be joining the many podcast creators who use this service.
All of our Patreon supporters get access to our Patreon only stream. We’re thinking that we’ll be using this to share behind the scenes posts and special Patron only Q&A podcast episodes. As we grow this community and hear from you, how we use the Patron only stream will evolve.
Tim & Peter
Tim DeChristopher disrupted an illegitimate Bureau of Land Management oil and gas auction in December of 2008, by posing as Bidder 70 and outbidding oil companies for parcels around Arches and Canyonlands National Parks in Utah. For his act of civil disobedience, he was sentenced to two years in federal prison. Held for a total of 21 months, his imprisonment earned him an international media presence as an activist and political prisoner of the United States government. He has used this as a platform to spread the urgency of the climate crisis and the need for bold, confrontational action in order to create a just and healthy world. Tim used his prosecution as an opportunity to organize the climate justice organization Peaceful Uprising in Salt Lake City, and most recently founded the Climate Disobedience Center.
Peter Bowden works nationally as a speaker, trainer, and coach helping organizations unleash the power of human connection through small groups, social media, and other community building strategies. Since 2012 Peter has been working behind the scenes documenting Boston area climate actions and helping climate activists and other justice leaders increase their reach, influence, and impact. Tim and Peter have been working together for nearly three years, most of that time with Peter saying, "We need to have a podcast! We need to share these conversations..."
