Unlikely alliances and unexpected heroes

Hear the WNV editors discuss the powerful convergence of cowboys and Indians against the Keystone XL — followed by an interview with a former corporate lawyer who is helping New York towns ban fracking.

After a minor quibble over how to pronounce one another’s last names threatens to derail the podcast, the WNV team sets its differences aside to discuss May Day actions, the global struggle to end sexual violence and the recent anti-Keystone XL gathering of cowboys and Indians in Washington, D.C. We then hear from 2014 Goldman Environmental Prize winner Helen Slottje — a former corporate lawyer who discovered the legal strategy that has allowed New York State townships to ban fracking.
