59. Richard Curtis Wants to Make Your Money Matter

59. Richard Curtis Wants to Make Your Money Matter

This week, a LIVEstream episode! We were joined by activist and filmmaker, Richard Curtis, for his second time on the podcast! His latest initiative, Make My Money Matter is a campaign to shift the £3 trillion invested in UK pensions away from fossil fuels, arms, and meat production over to clean energy, healthcare, and human rights. This initiative is helping vegans not unknowingly invest in meat production, helping doctors not unknowingly invest in tobacco, and the list goes on. Amazing stuff. And later on in the episode, another Outrage + Optimism first! A live musical performance from Beans on Toast of his song, "On & On".
