Donald Trump was in New York City this week. We left him some tickets for our live podcast at the box office, but he never showed up.

Still, we had a blast taping our latest episode at WNYC's performance space in Manhattan. And this week, we've got that episode in its entirety. 

Special guest Mark Chambers, director of the mayor's office of sustainability, joined us on stage for a lively discussion.

In this extended episode, we feature a variety of segments.

First, we tested the gang’s knowledge of New York’s energy scene with a little segment we called "Climate Week: The Game."

Then, we interviewed Mark Chambers, who offered insight into the city's climate action plan.

Then, we went deep. We had a debate about the importance of local climate and energy policy in the Trump era -- with a little audience Q&A mixed in, too.

Finally, we completed a quick news circuit and analyzed some top energy stories in the news.
