If you are interested in environmentalism, Israel, Palestine, farming, water, separation, colonialism, urbanism, exile, homesickness, fossil fuels, East, migration, Africa, Paris Agreement, and, of course, Edward Said‘s legacy, you should listen to Naomi Klein, who delivered in 2016 the annual Edward Said London Lecture (a 88:12 min podcast including Q&A): Let Them Drown. The Violence of Othering in a Warming World*.
