Theater of the Mind

without comments

In this 300th C-Realm Podcast episode, KMO welcomes Dmitry Orlov back to the program to check in on the collapse narrative and to compare the actual unfolding of events with Dmitry’s perspective of five years ago.

“…I did an episode a few months back with—Guy McPherson was on, and Kurt Cobb, and Henry Warwick. And Henry was saying that it’s just really irresponsible to talk about collapse to audiences who don’t understand the very specific meaning of the word you have in mind, because generally when people hear “collapse,” they think ‘Mad Max Scenario’, when in fact a collapse in the Joseph Tainter sense can be advantageous, you know, in fact it could be that we are due for some financial, political and commercial collapse, but social and cultural collapse are things you would want to avoid at all costs.”

“Well, yes, it’s not all one thing. The criticism that I use this word, well, you know, let them propose a different word. I haven’t exactly redefined what I’m talking about, I’m just adding detail. So I don’t know if that’s entirely valid.”

In this 300th C-Realm Podcast episode, KMO welcomes Dmitry Orlov back to the program to check in on the collapse narrative and to compare the actual unfolding of events with Dmitry’s perspective of five years ago. Later Lorenzo Hagerty of the Psychedelic Salon Podcast and the Dopefiend of the Dopefiend.co.uk Podcast Network drop by to talk about the process of creating 300 podcast episodes. Finally KMO checks in with Black Beauty, the Australian with the velvety voice who provides the C-Realm Podcast with its bumpers, and Justin and Seth of the Extraenvironmentalist Podcast share a poem by Wendell Berry.
