About the co-hosts:
Author/Actress Rivera Sun sings the anthem of our times and rallies us to meet adversity with gusto. In addition to The Dandelion Insurrection, she is the author of nine plays, a book of poetry, and her debut novel, Steam Drills, Treadmills, and Shooting Stars, which celebrates everyday heroes who meet the challenges of climate change with compassion, spirit, and strength.
David Geitgey Sierralupe prefers you call him Getch. As Dr. Seuss once noted, there are way too many Daves. When not plotting to Occupy the Media through an activist, internet media hub, Getch remodels homes in Eugene, Oregon.
