KunstlerCast - Suburban Sprawl: A Tragic Comedy
James Howard Kunstler, author of The Geography of Nowhere, The Long Emergency, and World Made By Hand, takes on the converging catastrophes of the 21st century. Features a new guest each month. (Note: Episodes 1 - 214 featured conversations between Duncan Crary and JHK during the years 2008 through 2012 and focused on the topics of suburban sprawl, disposable architecture and the end of the cheap oil era.)
Mark Hurst is an early Web pioneer who has become one of Big Tech's sharpest critics. Hurst's Creative Good newsletter and Techtonic radio show chart the spread of Big Tech into all areas of life and work. His GoodReports.com site lists alternatives to Big Tech platforms. Earlier in his career, Hurst founded the Gel ("Good Experience Live") conference, which debuted projects like Wikipedia and Khan Academy. He is the author of two books about technology: "Bit Literacy" (2007) on information overload, and "Customers Included" (2nd edition, 2015) on building customer-friendly digital products. The KunstlerCast theme music is the beautiful Two Rivers Waltz written and performed by Larry Unger.
