Me and fellow peak oil pundit James Howard Kunstler spending an hour talking about a recent Ecosophia post of mine, Hate is the New Sex, and much more! Listen to it here.

Many thanks for this!

Many thanks for this. I love a good podcast and you two always have something interesting to say.

The rain is absolutely belting down here. It is very dark outside with thick clouds scudding low along the sky. And the rain is torrential. The usual gentle winter rain has disappeared this year and been replaced with the sort that you'd normally expect in spring. I wonder what the summer will hold in store down here?

Always a pleasure to hear my favorite archdruid and my favorite curmudgeonly social commentator join forces to break through the self-referential haze that hangs over our culture.

One note: it's clear from the lack of "I told you so," following the comment about armbands with ancient symbols of peace on them that this was recorded prior to this past weekend. A shame, really, since I would have loved to have heard the two of you discuss how far this goes from here.

Ah, well. I'll content myself with bringing it up next week on the open post. Probably along with everyone else.

Thanks, great discussion. I don't think I have ever heard JHK at a loss for words before.

Not sure if you noticed, but Kunstler has your blog called ecosophilia on the description to the podcast. As a fan of your blog does that makes me an ecosophiliac?, haha!

Always enjoy listening to and JHK riff on a subject.It can be funny what sometimes catches a person's ear, and when you said "the university experience" mine perked right up.
Few years ago, the local university built a new student "fitness and recreation"
center. The exterior of the building itself would make it a candidate for one of JHK's "Eyesores of the Month", although it probably would not win--not quite that ugly. ;-)But the offerings inside blow every private health center in the city out of the water. The indoor pool area could probably rival some decent spas. All sorts of xeriscaping and water catchment landscaping surrounding it, because well,the displaced water has to go somewhere.
We sure didn't have anything like that when I went to school there in the 70s.
But the building may make for some decent salvage some decades down the road. I find myself looking at buildings that way now---what will still be used as a viable structure, and what will be salvage? The only buildings on campus I figure will be usable are in the original core, all built prior to 1930. New fitness center? Salvage.

Unrelated, but something you've been saying for years is finally mainstream!

I'm reading Twilight's Last Gleaming, and wonder to whom to direct suggestions for editorial corrections in future editions?

I apologize for the off topic question, but I am currently reading Circles of Power and I was wondering the source of your evocation circle example. I've put a lot of hours into making one and I'd like to hear more about it. Was it your own creation?
