Connecting the Dots Between the Boogaloo Boys and Climate Change

We did this bonus segment for Hot Take subscribers on the Boogaloo Boys a couple weeks ago where we talked about what these guys are up to, where they came from, and their connection to climate change. Since then they’ve been appearing more and more frequently, so we thought it might be useful to share it freely.

To learn more, check out these stories we referenced in the segment:
