Joe Clement hosts this episode and we hear:

Bill Resnick and Sammy Roth, an environmental journalist. They discuss a study, commissioned by the City of Los Angeles, titled L.A 100%, that found to the investigators great surprise that L.A. could transition to almost 100% renewables by 2030.

Jan Haaken talks with Emaline Friedman about QAnon as a political and cultural phenomenon. They take up the ways the platform engages a range of anxieties and desires among supporters, and what it may signal about our current political crises.

From the archives, we hear Denise Morris review the 2014 film, "Pride", a historical comedy-drama about  Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM). Led by members of the Communist Party of Britain, LGSM were lesbians and gays who supported National Union of Mineworkers during the year-long strike of 1984–1985 under Margaret Thatcher.
