Hot Mamas Episode 1: Talking with Dr. Amanda Millstein
Show Notes

The very first episode of Hot Mamas features a conversation with Dr. Amanda Millstein, a mother of two children ages 3 and 5, and the co-founder of Climate Health Now, an organization of medical professionals in California who are protecting and improving the health of all people by advocating for urgent, equitable climate solutions.

Amanda and I talk about what the Hot Mamas podcast is all about, our experiences with California's megafires, and the need for solidarity among moms working on the climate crisis.

She shares how her climate activism began (unexpectedly) in her doctor's office, why she's fighting one of the most powerful corporations on the planet to protect her tiny patients, and how activism keeps her hopeful.

You won't want to miss the very first episode of Hot Mamas, conversations with working moms trying to keep their cool on a heating planet.
