KMO talks with Phil, a 31 year-old Massachusetts native living in Baltimore, Maryland about a his political awakening campaigning for Obama as a college student and then voting for Jill Stein a short four years later. Other topics include the Great Awokening, campus culture, Peak Oil, and the potential future struggles of China.
Rumor has it that there was a generation BETWEEN the Baby Boomers and the Millennials, but so far I have been unable to locate any reliable documentation of this so-called "Generation X." Guest: Doug Lain
KMO and John Michael Greer met up in Lancaster, PA this week to talk about ecofascism. JMG made a bit of a stir a few weeks back when he published an essay on his blog called The Next Twilight of Environmentalism. His thesis is that we're in the early stages of seeing media power-brokers discredit environmentalism by associating it with Nazis, white nationalists and mass shooters. Later in the podcast, KMO asks JMG about the candidacy of Andrew Yang and his signature policy, the Freedom Dividend.

KMO and JHK yak about the degraded state of American electoral politics, the Democrat Primary contest, potential campaign surprises, and the potential for cyber-mischief from unexpected quarters.

Continuing the discussion of John Michael Greer's blog post, The Next Twilight of Environmentalism, KMO is joined by Rob the polymath to discuss the possibility that mainstream pundits on the left will soon take a fringe message mainstream and insist that any talk of ecological limits or capacity is motivated by racism.
