Lake Street Dive drummer Mike Calabrese is on The Mother Earth Podcast to talk about the climate crisis, mental health, and how his getting involved in the former helped improve the latter. You can hear their conversation here. "Vulnerability is kind of what got me into activism," says Calabrese. "It's almost impossible if you're truly depressed to be creative and write music and create good art. When you come through it, you can look at it and create art to help you heal. But that's the point where you go: am I just gonna wait around for the next time, or do I want to push past into becoming more involved and ultimately redefining how you want to live in the world."
