You’ve heard of the anti-CRT movement… but have you caught wind of ESG, the latest acronym that Republicans have weaponized in their anti-woke crusade? ESG investments have entered the chat in a big way - but it’s not the easiest topic to comprehend. So we brought an expert in to help us break down who the players are, clarify the mess of jargon that’s being tossed around, and why any of this should matter to us on the left.

Journalist & author Kate Aronoff makes a trip back to the Bloc & joins Amira to discuss her article “The Right Has It In for Woke Investors. The Only Problem? They Don’t Exist”.

For more from Kate, check out her most recent book, Overheated: How Capitalism Broke the Planet – And How We Fight Back.
