Climate Messaging with Nicole Conlan and Brian Kahn

Sweatpants / Episode 1

n this unbelievably low-key episode, Rollie cracks open a cold one with writer/performer Nicole Conlan (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and climate journalist Brian Kahn (Earther, Columbia). They have an absolutely liquid smooth conversation about climate messaging including seamless transitions, a secret Stephen Colbert formula for writing comedy about difficult subjects, and several first and last names of some ultimate frisbee players. At one point Brian wonders whether Generation Z knows about the Matrix franchise, and they both felt really old. There's something for everybody in this Sweatpants episode unless you were looking for some stressful, high-key debates, in which case you're out of luck.
