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.)

#377 — John Michael Greer blogs at Ecosophia, subtitle, Toward an Ecological Spirituality. JMG has been an astute observer of Western Civ’s arduous economic and cultural descent, and is the author of many books, both novels and non-fiction, including Green Wizardry, After Oil, The Wealth of Nature, and Not the Future We Ordered. Star’s Reach, is a novel set 400 years ahead in America’s neo-medieval future, The King in Orange, a meditation on the relationship between archetype psychology and the occult as acted out in politics and culture. Things are getting weird in America, wouldn’t you agree? Even a bit supernatural. To help us navigate through this wilderness of the weird, JMG and I talk about magic and the re-enchantment of daily life in these turbulent times.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr is a candidate for president running for the Democratic Party nomination.  He’s a long-time environmental lawyer, author of the book The Real Anthony Fauci, which has sold over a million copies — and still hasn’t made it to the New York Times bestseller list for some mysterious reason. He’s the Founder and chairman of the Children’s Health Defense organization. His father, Robert F. Kennedy, Sr,.was Attorney General of the United States and US Senator from New York, and his Uncle, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was elected president of the United States in 1960.

     I recorded Bobby on his cell phone and the sound quality isn’t the greatest. He’d had a rugged week after announcing his bid to run, and we were lucky to get him on the podcast. Next time, we’ll get him on a good mic.

     His campaign website is: www.kennedy24.com
