Interview on Climate Change, the New Cold War and the Rise of China

I did an interview few weeks ago with Chris Oestereich, which he’s putting up in three parts. I listened to part three today and, while I rarely say this, I thought it was quite good and if you’re interested in any of these topics, probably worth your while. It clocks it at under 24 minutes.

Podcast Interview On US Politics and the Midterms

I sat down with Chris Oestereich for a fairly long interview. He’s split it into three parts.


Interview Part 2: Politics Thru Climate Change

This second excerpt from my interview is more interesting and longer.

This is the second clip from my interview with Ian Welsh (Ian blogs at For this segment, we went on a wild ride discussing the big picture mess that is US politics and society more broadly. I asked Ian what might happen if Trump lost and refused to leave and the resulting discussion meandered through a variety of interesting topics, including the 2000 Bush-Gore election debacle and the problems it enabled, the hope embodied in the squad, whether and what sort of help people want, and the specter of twelve more years of neoliberal politics. (Perish the thought.) All of this was couched in the shadow of the increasingly problematic nature of climate change.

Competing with Corporations, Emotional Performance, and Meditation

I was recently interviewed by Collin Morris for his Zion 2.0 podcast.

Not all of this will be of interest to all my readers. The first part is about how non-capitalist forms can compete with corporations and inside capitalism and survive (or rather, it’s me spelling out the problem rather than the solution). The second part is about emotional performance in an age of social media, how damaging it is, and what we can do to stop it from hurting our physical and mental health.

After that, the podcast is about spirituality and meditation and those of you who aren’t interested in those topics may want to quit before that.

You can find the interview here.
