8/28 This Radical Land: A Natural History of American Dissent w/ Daegan Miller

August 28, 2018

Today writer Daegan Miller joins us to discuss his new book, ‘This Radical Land: A Natural History of Dissent.’ Fun half returns next Tuesday.

What is radical environmentalism? How freedom and justice require environmental ethics, and how the social and natural can’t be understood apart from each other. Exploitation as a fundamental to both social and environmental justice. Thoreau and the ethics of surveying. Timbuktu and the legacy of African-American pioneers.

 

For members: Air America throwback (2/11/2005), Sam and Janeane interview Eugene Mirman, Eddie Izzard, Flight of the Concords, and Stewart Lee live from the HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado.
