This week NBL speaks with Forrest Palmer of Wrong a Kind of Green. We took calls and touched upon collapse, quitting our jobs, defaulting on debt, the emotional roller coaster that is the Doomesphere and steps towards the exit of the dominant culture. Mike’s book, Chasing A Different Carrot is now out and available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Google Books.
After a five-week break, we focused on Guy’s recently completed speaking tour of New Zealand. We were joined by tour organizer and host Kevin Hester.
Guy went solo on this episode. He provided a few updates about climate change and took calls from nine listeners.
After a three-month break in broadcasting live, we talked about our personal adventures during the extended time off the air. We took several excellent calls, too, covering broad terrain.
We continued our social commentary with the “of course, but maybe” approach we started two weeks ago. Inspired by comedian Louis CK, we challenged the dysfunctional loyalty towards the dominant, “civilized” culture. We took a couple of good calls, too, and included a climate-change update.
We enjoyed a rollicking conversation with Scott Dikkers, co-founder and longest-serving editor-in-chief of The Onion. We took a couple of excellent calls, too, and finished the show with a climate-change update.
This week Guy and Mike challenge the dysfunctional loyalty towards the dominant civilized culture, while simultaneously challenging the narratives that some of our listeners may hold. Inspired by the comedy of Louis C.K., this show attempts to find the root of our core beliefs. We took calls and had some excellent contributions from our listeners.
We used several clips in support of this social-criticism show. We took a few calls and wrapped with a climate-change update.
