“Just Energy” is a podcast collaboration between me, an energy justice professor at Indiana University’s O’Neill School, and my master of public affairs students. Here we explore what energy (in)justice is, its racial and social dimensions, and how to make future energy policy more inclusive by design. Because it’s never just about energy. It’s about people.
