Seth MacFarlane says climate change is no joke

Seth MacFarlane, of Family Guy and Ted fame, joins Shad to discuss his serious side and his latest project with Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis.
Seth MacFarlane reached out to Naomi Klein after reading her alarming about environmental degradation, This Changes Everything.

It's not so much a career move as "the right thing to do."

That's how seasoned provocateur Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, Ted) describes his role as executive producer for the film version of This Changes Everything. The book-turned-documentary, by Canadian journalists Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis, calls for radical change to our economic system to combat climate change. 

The notorious provocateur also reflects on his unflinching brand of comedy and what it takes to offend him personally.
