Joe Rogan Experience: Siddarth Kara on the treatment of workers in Cobalt mines in the Congo
If you have a Spotify subscription, I would highly recommend you listen to the Siddarth Kara episode of The Joe Rogan Experience. Kara is an author, researcher, and activist on modern slavery and an adjunct lecturer at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
Kara joined the Joe Rogan show to discuss his new book Cobalt Red: How the Blood of the Congo Powers Our Lives, where he discusses the conditions miners face in Congolese cobalt mines. He also discusses how electric vehicle batteries require about 1,000 times more cobalt than a smartphone battery.
