The interview with Philip, a Millennial, concludes in this episode, and then KMO riffs on the subject matter that he's been covering in his daily YouTube videos for half an hour.
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.
Long-time listeners will recognize Eric Boyd as the loyal C-Realm opposition on the topic of Peak Oil and collapse. Eric has appeared on the C-Realm and C-Realm Vault podcasts for years as the person who offers friendly, calm push-back against the PO collapse narrative. Now the KMO has put some distance between himself and collapse, it seems like a good time to check back in with Eric to compare notes.
KMO and frequent contributor, Rob, discuss Douglas Rushkoff's most recent book, Team Human. Not surprisingly, the conversation touches often on the topic of artificial intelligence and its likely effects on human prospects for a viable and dignified future.
KMO talks with long-time friend of the C-Realm, David McFadzean. Topics include AI, the culture war, surveillance capitalism and peak oil.
