Pullback is a podcast about the ethical issues behind everyday goods and services. On each episode hosts Kyla Hewson and Kristen Pue challenge themselves to try something new in ethical consumption and tell you what they learned. As they try—and frequently fail—to be good people, they bring listeners information about the underlying causes that drive ethical problems in our everyday decisions and talk about the different ways that people are trying to help while educating listeners about consumer movements, ethical labels and lifestyles, and policy solutions.

Kyla Hewson is an audio wizard living in “the-rent-is-too-damn-high” Vancouver. Kyla started this podcast with Kristen upon returning to Canada, after living and working abroad. Travelling pushed her to think more about how the world connects and has driven her to learn how systems of injustice can be changed for the better. Pullback is a project that holds her accountable as she explores how to be a better person. Follow her on Twitter @KylaHewson
Kristen Pue is a postdoctoral fellow studying social policy at the University of Chicago. She grew up in refinery row, Alberta, and moved out to Toronto for graduate school—achieving the rare feat of living in both places that Canadians hate the most. Kristen has a Ph.D. from the University of Toronto, where her focus areas were social policy, nonprofits, and political economy. During her studies, Kristen became passionate about the ethical problems in global supply chains—and the advocacy campaigns, consumer movements, and ethical labels created to address them. So, she teamed up with Kyla to start a podcast about it! Follow her on Twitter @KristenPue
