Seg. 1: Climate Changing Lives | Seg. 2: Football Fandom Ethics

Segment 1: Young adults are making life decisions with their carbon footprints top of mind.

From your morning ablutions to your night on the town, every action you take these days impacts the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. Young people are acutely aware of this, and it's changing the day-to-day and long-term decisions they make in life.


Segment 2, beginning at 25:52: The moral quagmires of violent sports and protests.

They also consider the limits of protest and how far is too far when it comes to demonstrating for the cause you believe in.
