In this episode, ecology activist and regenerative agriculture advocate Vandana Shiva joins Nate to discuss how her powerful work has shaped the way she sees the world.

From chaining herself to trees to winning against powerful agriculture giants like Monsanto, Vandana shares the many lessons she’s learned in fighting for food systems that are better for the Earth and better for humans. Can we shift away from fossil input-intensive agriculture that produces commodities lacking in full nutrients towards one with more labor, more community, and more nutritious food?
