No more cake!
This is a necessary, often insightful, and always interesting podcast. It’s ecological critique of civilization is perhaps the most significant movement in human consciousness since Marx. I have been listening to episodes haphazardly, and my favorites so far include: 10. Radical Feminism, 24. Esther Figueroa, 25. Planet of the Humans, and 40. Sergio Alexander Kochergin. There are some speakers on the podcast whose views I do not entirely agree with or would qualify; for example, I do not think rivers are persons. However, the range of views expressed is stimulating. Some suggestions for furthering the cause through this outlet would be: 1) more debate on debatable points and 2) perhaps some humor. Keep up the good work Max and Jennifer!

DGR is spreading the gospel of eco radicalism now via diverse medias and epic praxis.
Such an amazing book, and so much of the conversation about it fell flat. More preparation should have gone into such a potent conversation. There was so much more to say, to consider. The insights were commonplace observations that I have heard so often. You just didn't add much, and I was deeply disappointed.
One example was the allusion to Make Love Not War and no one knowing the fact that this was actually the anthem of the anti-Vietnam War movement and the counter-culture revolt of the 60's! A phrase that was in every newspaper, magazine, on posters across the country. That was just one of the untapped opportunities to unpack cultural patterns.
Also, other than the Indian woman (for whom the audio was terrible), it sounded like mostly white people discussing a problem that disproportionately affects women of color.
Also, no real commentary on the ubiquitous pornography that has been the formation of the vast majority of all classes of men and education since the onset of the Internet, and how this new "sex standard" has impacted most young women.
No passion, no real study, nor deep analysis that could have served us all, but failed to add much of anything to the conversation.
