Can I Call You Honey, Ed Markey? with Senator Ed Markey

Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness #175 August 18, 2020

This week on Getting Curious, Jonathan is learning about the power of clean energy with a clean energy powerhouse: Massachusetts representative and co-author of the Green New Deal bill, Senator Ed Markey. Senator Markey explains what a Green New Deal can offer in the way of environmental protections, job opportunities, pandemic recovery, and more.

Senator Markey is also running for re-election in the upcoming Massachusetts primary, and he and Jonathan discuss his four decades as a progressive leader, what the stakes are for his keeping his seat (they’re JVN endorsement-level major!), and how he’s planning to turn out the vote on September 1.
