We are excited to announce that Outrage + Optimism is now part of the TED Audio Collective. This news represents an exciting continuation of the collaboration between our organizations, which began with our strategic partnership with TED Countdown.

The TED Audio Collective is a curated collection of podcasts sharing ideas on a range of subjects, including psychology, business, and design. On TED Climate you’ll hear talks from some of the leading minds in the field on crisis solutions, challenges, and insights that give listeners the information and hope we need to keep fighting.

Sarah Thomas

Executive Producer of Outrage + Optimism

Sarah cut her teeth in audio production in the indie sector, helping to make radio documentaries and dramas for BBC radio 1, 2, 3 & 4 before joining the BBC to work across News and Sport. 

She went on to launch her freelance career providing support as a publicist and writer for a range of clients including the BBC Press Office, Radio 5 Live and for the last two years, as a researcher for Outrage+Optimism.

Despite growing up in an urban environment in South London, she was encouraged by her parents to nurture a deep connection to nature, a connection that now guides her work and life decisions. She is particularly interested in how intersectionality is informing the climate space and how we collectively ensure that the goals of the climate movement do not become more important than the routes we take to achieve them.
