Thank you so much for creating this fantastic podcast. I only discovered it a few months ago when I was struggling a lot with climate anxiety, frustration and fury that I couldn’t seem to get through to my local community about how immediate the concerns of climate change are. I manage a small...Read full review »

Like so many here in Australia I am just holding on until our next federal election when hopefully we will see a renewed parliament step up to the emergency we all face.

I’m so grateful for this show- and all of you- for having the capacity to hold complexity & dialectics- both emotionally and intellectually.

Every Saturday night we listen to this podcast instead of watching a movie. We are climate activists. O and O has become a vital source of hope and regeneration for the climate action slog for each week ahead! The thought of the podcast ending in the future makes us feel desperate. Additionally,...Read full review »

Outrage and Optimism is just an amazing podcast.

Outrage and optimism is fantastic. You get informed and interesting commentary on climate happenings and a great range of really interesting guests. I also love the stubborn optimism!
KerryP64 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/03/21
One of the weirdest climate change-related interventions you'll ever come across. These guys love a suit, especially if worn by an ecocidal banker or fossil fuel exec. They appear to believe that saving our living planet is compatible with fake 'economic growth' - a physical...Read full review »

Dear O&O Team, I love this podcast! When I discovered it, I binge-listened to all the back episodes and I can truly say that it is better than binge-watching Netflix.

This is the best informed climate podcast I know with high level access to important players in the climate debate. Both the outrage and optimism side are sorely needed to get humanity to the point where it needs to be to address the climate challenge. Also a great and entertaining format.

The format of this show is great - keeps me informed on the most current global climate change news (with commentary from some of the smartest minds in the field), brings a great interview with an inspiring person, and then more commentary and fun from the three hosts. Love it!!

The lengths gone to, to down load iTunes just to rate this should be evidence enough but honestly I cannot thank you three (and Clay's soothing tones) enough for the delight, inspiration, breadth and depth of topics and guests you challenge each week.

Amazing clarity. I love it - such outrage - let’s use it for the fuel.

Christiana Figueres tries to rein in the duo of Paul Dickinson and Tom Rivett-Carnac from straying too far off topic, as they discuss current climate news and interview interesting speakers who are making a difference towards keeping global temperatures below 1.5oC.
