Last Born in the Wilderness: New Interview

Click here to listen to the interview.

Last month, I had the real pleasure of talking with Patrick Farnsworth again, host of the Last Born in the Wilderness podcast. You can listen to the interview here. We talked about my essays, “We Did Start the Fire”, about climate change, mass extinction, and the Anthropocene, my most recent (provocatively-titled) essay, “Why I Stopped Protesting and Started a Garden”, and about what a “post-doom” orientation really looks like.

If you’re not familiar with Patrick’s podcast, Last Born in the Wilderness, you really should check it out. He has interviewed such amazing folks as Bayo Akomolafe (“The Times Are Urgent, We Must Slow Down”), Paul Ehrlich (The Population Bomb), Derrick Jensen (Dark Green Resistance), Dahr Jamail (The End of Ice), Silvia Federici (Caliban & the Witch), Rhyd WIldermuth/Alley Valkyrie (Gods & Radicals), Guy McPherson (Near-Term Human Extinction”), Stephen Jenkinson (Orphan Wisdom School), Charles Eisenstein (Sacred Economics), anarchist John Zerzan, Trebbe Johnson (Radical Joy for Hard Times), Dmitry Orlov (The Five Stages of Collapse), Dougald Hine (Dark Mountain Project), and many more.
