    037 Coronavirus Collapse... or Just Allergies?

    KC & JP were not going to do an episode about COVID 19 because it felt like a media grab. But then they realized Maximum Carbon Sinkhole is buried too deep into the weird that even though the rest of the world is now soaking in it, they haven't reached MCSH depths, yet. Plus, a pandemic that is shutting down major US cities is kind of, like, a thing that might actually cause A) societal collapse and B) a drastic draw down of emissions. Plus, it's hilarious in that whole fan-hit-by-shit kind of way.

    Pandemics of the last 100 years all have the same cause. Where our resilience has been ahead. Where it's been behind. What's the upside of coronavirus?

    035 Unlistenable

    KC & JP sit down to talk about all the great feedback loops they've gotten but instead are too high to stay on task and end up talking about the christmas episode, climate change, chemical exposure, the christmas episode, autoimmune diseases, obesity, capitalism, environmental collapse, societal collapse, the christmas episode, art, community, gardening, the christmas episode, pet obesity, fragrance, the christmas episode, collaboration, veganism, cats, and the christmas episode.

    Title inspired by: Unlistenable by Steel Pole Bath Tub released in 2002 but all their albums are good. You should also listen to Milk Cult & Tumor Circus

    034 Roger Hallam : The Lost Tapes

    KC is on one and comes out blazing in Roger's defense. JP would like to remind everyone Roge' is the spokesman for not-doing-the-end-of-the-world. This dank recording was thought lost to the vapors - until now. A few months back, Extinction Rebellion put Roger in time out. XR's conflict resolution process is corporate AF. Eye on the prize, people.

    033 Coping with Climate Change Stress

    033 Coping with Climate Change Stress

    KC and JP discuss how adaptation is more than learning how to live on a warmer planet. It isn't just about retreating from the rising seas, the burning forests, the flooded plains, or the spreading aridification. It's about our emotional response to the knowledge that everything we know, everything we take for granted—clean water, clean air, ample calories— will become scarce. But more than that, the plants and animals that we relate to. The wild beings that have inhabited this planet with us will leave us behind. Alone. We just might be the lone monoculture on planet Earth. Nothing good comes from that. And knowing it hurts. So we laugh. We cry. But we try to laugh more. And get high.
