Personal Journals

For more than a decade two mugshots of fugitive environmentalists have sat amongst airplane hijackers, bombers and murders on the FBI’s Most Wanted Domestic Terrorists list. One of the photos is of a tall, hipster looking engineer from Seattle. He’s wearing a red shirt, has a light shadowy beard. His name: Joseph Mahmoud Dibee. The other photo is of a young white woman with thick eyebrows, piercing brown eyes and long brown hair. Across her back is a large tattoo: a bird with its wings outstretched, soaring. Her name: Josephine Sunshine Overaker. To the authorities, Joseph Mahmoud Dibee and Josephine Sunshine Overaker are dangerous, violent extremists, part of an eco-terrorist movement that in 2005 the then Deputy Assistant Director of the FBI called the number one domestic terror threat in America. And now one of them - Joseph Dibee - has been caught. For the past eighteen months journalist Leah Sottile has been recording with Joe Dibee as his case progresses through the courts and as... more

  • If you're an activist for the environment this is essential listening

    I enjoyed every moment but more importantly it gave me motivation and some sense of meaning behind all the craziness of activism we are seeing now. For me as an activist it has given me new resolve but also clarity on how to be an activist in the current times. Worth listening in every way- gripping and creatively written. Thank you for the tireless work putting this together. I sincerely wish for everyone to listen to this.

  • Changing Points of View; Changing Minds

    I remember when the actions of the Earth Liberation Front were in the news. I wasn’t too sure what to make of them then. Maybe they were terrible people. Maybe they had a point to make. I just didn’t know. There were too many unknowns in my mind to develop a position one way or the other. Leah Sottile and her production team have cleared up my confusion that I had then. Joe Dibee’s words now echo in my mind. “If not me, who? If not now, when?” It’s too bad it had to come to this, too bad for all... more

  • Prescient and thought provoking

    How far are we willing to go to save the planet? What’s moral or “right” in the face of climate change? Where is the line when it comes to protesting and taking action? These are some important questions at the heart of this podcast. And while it focuses on dramatic narratives of fugitives and eco saboteurs operating 20-30 years ago, the show smartly applies insights from those events and turns its gaze towards our current climate crisis. This is an important topic, and thank you Leah for diggin... more

  • Really interesting and helpful.

    Leah and Georgia did a great job collecting a lot of different viewpoints and covering a lot of background on a very important part of modern history. I’m a boring and somewhat oblivious suburbanite who hasn’t really paid attention to what’s going on in the environmental movement but this was an excellent podcast series on some pretty critical constitutional and justice issues and its impact on our present approach to the environment. Pretty much one of the best podcast series I’ve listened to i... more
