👉🏽 Iggy Monda (he/him)

Why this theme?

👉🏽 I'm the host and producer of Feet in 2 Worlds: Home, Interrupted, a podcast about the impact of climate change on immigrant communities and communities of color and how those communities are responding with resilience and innovation.

For Earth Day 2024, I wanted to highlight an episode of our podcast and episodes from other podcasts that look at climate change from global, local, and personal perspectives.
