If you’re not one of the top 1% that oil wealth scion Tom Rivett Carnac thinks/feels we all must be in, understand that the shallow nostrums offered by this apologia for capitalism are not the answer. Revolt is. And the TEDified O&Oers of this world are the very enemy we must...Read full review »

Thank you for producing and hosting this brilliant podcast. It is so informative and inspiring for our collective journey to a better future. A few episodes back I heard the question mooted as to whether to interview the new Shell CEO. I don’t know if a decision was made but my vote would be...Read full review »

Like listening in on a conversation by three brilliant friends with up-to-the minute facts and information on all of the most pressing issues and events on climate and environment. This podcast goes deep. It is equal parts fun and fury. Great interviews, engaging hosts, lots of information. If...Read full review »

I was writing this for a survey, and realized it was really a podcast review: In the past 2 years, I have moved from despondency about climate change, to an excitement for action. Outrage + Optimism is a huge part of this, along with Molly Wood's Sunday "VC Sunday School" podcast...Read full review »

I love listening to this podcast and as a climate advocate in Bhutan esp. working within the space of climate literacy, action and young people - I derive much joy and share the same frustrations expressed and channeled so eloquently and realistically in this podcast. I love the chemistry between...Read full review »

I’m very happy
lucillewconca via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/20/22
I stopped listening after the episode given to a friendly chat with Zac Goldsmith, someone who ran a racist election campaign. Until then I found the podcasts regularly informative but, despite the best efforts of Christina, too often a presenter-fuelled Britchat, and I say this as a Brit.

I don’t believe I can live without this podcast! In times of despair, they enlighten me and give me hope and strength to keep up the struggle. I’m so grateful for this fantastic podcast and for the laughters and knowledge they give me.

Important themes brought with optimism!

Important topic brought with optimism!
ecopreneurrr via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 10/01/22
A real roller coaster of outrage and optimism this episode. I love Tom’s optimism around the investor “pact” BUT the desperate issues brought up—the lack of support for Pakistan, the lack of support for developing countries, the announcement by the fossil of a Business Secretary in the UK, says...Read full review »
Fuschia Jules via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/18/22
Brilliant podcast, endlessly informative and so comforting to see how many people we have globally committed to pushing for a better future. Dealing with depression and severe eco-anxiety this year and while some weeks I can’t face listening to anything related to climate change, on the weeks...Read full review »

hi Christiana, Tom & Paul, thank you so much for what you do. I've learnt so much over the last two years of listening to your podcasts. Sometimes the information is so dark but your infectious enthusiasm, and determination to present a deliberately hopeful approach always leaves me...Read full review »
Abi Thomas via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/01/22
When I feel bleak about the future I listen to this. Joyous and radical statement from this episode: just 2% of global GDP could significantly address the climate crisis. Christiana Figueres is inspiring as ever, and I enjoy the narratives from Tom and the creative input from Paul. To all of the...Read full review »
SarahLiv via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/23/22
As I like so many, no doubt including your team, have really struggled this year to hear, take in or believe any optimism this year. I want to thank you all for this most recent episode. The way that you interlinked all the suffering we have seen our fellow humans and planet with what we can...Read full review »
Juicestars via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/19/22
Infuriating on the “outrage” side of the house and uplifting on the “optimism” side, this podcast does a superb job of educating its listeners on the damage mankind is doing to its own habitat AND the cooperative efforts to undo that damage. I love the energy behind Christiana, Tom and Paul’s...Read full review »

How To Feed The World Without Devouring The Planet was an exemplary episode in many ways. But one environmentally friendly alternative was rather conspicuously absent. In 2013 a UN report urged western nations to do more to adopt and educate their people about the environmental and health...Read full review »

Wouldn’t miss an episode. Usually, my husband and I listen together one night on the weekend. It rejuvenates us for the next week of our climate work with new ideas and positive feelings. The laughter arising out of the banter between the oh-so-brilliant and knowledgeable hosts is refreshing. Oh...Read full review »

The CDP pod made me feel more optimistic than I have in a long time. Covid and the war in Ukraine have distracted massively from the collaborative fight against climate change. The two Pauls and the amazing growth of CDP over 20 years provide some light at the end of of a very long dark tunnel....Read full review »

Never thought it would find a place among my other weekly listens, but “Outrage and Optimism” somehow broke through and got me hooked. I certainly care a whole lot about the topic (action on climate change) but listening to an hour-long episode each week at first seemed a bit much. This podcast,...Read full review »

What happened to the idea of limiting your podcasts to 30 minutes? That would be a huge improvement. Please, please cut the waffle and increase the facts, clarity and simplicity.

Thank you so much for the encouraging call out to Australia and for not losing faith in us despite our appallingly recalcitrant government over the last decades. There are so, so many of us who have been fighting so hard for this. This change of government is a brilliant result for grassroots...Read full review »

Keep up the amazing work. I love hearing all of your guests and hearing your perspective on your guests. I love your worldview, since many of us US citizens can become super absorbed with our own country. I love your balance. We need the outrage and optimism interwoven together. It's hard to...Read full review »

I just found your informative and interesting podcast. Is there any episode regarding the unsustainable and harmful effects of animal factory farming and the urgency to eat more plants and less animal derivate food . Thank you.
Galeana1965 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/03/22
This is not a preaching-to-the-choir podcast! You will learn something and be uplifted by it!

Husylss via Apple Podcasts · Costa Rica · 03/19/22
I hate it when I fall behind on your podcasts because I find them not only informative but entertaining and, as in the case of your March 2nd episode, consoling. I am an activist with Citizens Climate Lobby and as a member often submit letters to the editor of our local newspaper. This one...Read full review »

I love this podcast and recommend it to everyone. BUT, and it’s a big but, please can Clay not speak at the end. 4 minutes of waffle in the latest episode… and as he says “it’s all in the show notes”!
