KMO welcomes Jordan and Fabio, two interns from the Greater Falls Community Justice Center, to the WOOL studio to talk about restorative justice and the need to move away from a primarily punitive form of criminal justice.
KMO gave his friend Rob a copy of Conversations on Collapse to read. This is the conversation they had after Rob had finished the book. Rob's person history qualifies him to add valuable observations to discussions focused on finance, oil and living abroad.
In this solo episode, KMO re-visits and ties together talk of sex robots, peak oil, the sucky collapse, and surveillance capitalism. He concludes by reading the introduction to the book Modern Nomadics: A Manual and Guide by Alex Wall.
KMO talks with Scott Mauer about fasting, living in a makeshift intentional community, switching user interfaces, making a living in a rapidly changing landscape, comics, role-playing games, van living and yurt living, Fun times.
The cover art is a group effort from the ATX Draws event that Scott describes in this episode.
KMO talks to engineer and permaculturalist, Robert Brown, about the strengths and weaknesses of the Peak Oil narrative. KMO recalls the different psychological factions that congregated under the Peak Oil banner. Some were focused on finding investment opportunities, others were disgusted with contemporary society and thrilled at the prospect of it falling to pieces. The conversation also touches on the harms and benefits of digital technology.
