In this episode, Nate is joined by Eco-interventionist and long-time friend DJ White.

DJ is not necessarily a household name but has been instrumental in successful environmental interventions – primarily for the oceans – for the last four decades. The list of his behind-the-scenes accomplishments is long, but today he joins Nate to describe how to be effective in change-making and outlines ways that current activist efforts could be improved. He also shares his own profound experiences with some of Earth’s most intelligent creatures and how these cetacean friends shaped his life’s work.
