Clay Carnill: [00:00:00] Hey, everyone, this is Clay, producer of Outrage + Optimism. Welcome to Volume Two of our Stubborn Optimist’s playlist, a bonus episode. OK, now, before we hit play, this episode is an extended listen that follows Volume One in which we’re featuring all the musical artists that we have had on our podcast so far. Now, as you may know, each week we invite a musical guest on to not only share their views about the role of art and artists during the climate crisis, but also to share their deeply engaging, purposeful and incredible music for our audience to listen to and enjoy. And just like Volume One, you can follow along in the show notes with the timestamps I’ve set there to help you find the beginning of each tune in the playlist. Links to everyone’s social media are in the description as well, so you can follow, connect and discover more music from these amazing artists. OK, I don’t want to keep you waiting any longer. So here it is, the Stubborn Optimist’s Playlist, Volume Two.
