First up is the conclusion of the conversation with Jim, your ad attacker, which began in C-Realm Podcast episode 543. Then comes a conversation recorded in Dallas, Texas with Scott and Paul, two friends of the C-Realm who both live near Austin, Texas and who traveled to Dallas to meet up with KMO for EarthX2019. There are a lot of stereotypes about Texas and Texans, few of which are charitable. Scott and Paul flesh out, and, in some cases, repudiate those stereotypes.
A few weeks ago, KMO came out to Jim Kunstler as a sort of Peak Oil apostate. One of the most passionate and coherent of the people pushing back against KMO's change of opinion on the topic of Peak Oil is his friend and neighbor, Doug. In this episode of the C-Realm Radio show on WOOL, 91.5 FM in Bellows Falls, Vermont, Doug, JHK and KMO revisit that topic and touch on several others, including the prospects for the DNC Primary contest for the 2020 election.
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 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.
