In our final episode of Season Two, we are in conversation with Abbey Brown. As Technical Lead for the Clean Fuel Standard with the Washington Department of Ecology, Abbey is on the front line of working for structural and systemic changes. She is wise beyond her years and we are very grateful to her for joining us to talk about how to sustain ourselves, collectively and individually, even when we care deeply and even when things can feel, or are, dire.
