KMO's 2017 summer odyssey begins in this episode. First stop is the home of author, blogger and podcaster, James Howard Kunstler. JHK took KMO on a garden tour, and then they got down to the serious business of making up fanciful stories with the aid of a set of Story Cubes. The next day, KMO drove to Lancaster, PA to the home of Kevin Lynn of the Center for Progressive Urban Politics. We'll hear more from Kevin in an upcoming episode. The rest of this episode consists of a meditation on the costs of social media inspired by an episode of Hidden Brain.
