Ho ho ho! It’s that time of year again. Here’s JHK’s holiday classic: A Christmas Orphan.

11-year-old Jeff Greenaway hears his mom and dad argue one night after an office Christmas party. He infers from their garbled squabble that he is an orphan, found in a willow basket on the welcome mat outside their New York apartment. Thinking now that his parents are imposters, he steals away to Grand Central Station and buys a train ticket to Drakesville, Vermont, where he intends to start life all over again.

Dmitry Orlov, the author of Reinventing Collapse and many other books, has become a publisher lately and, in his capacity as publisher and publicist, Dmitry and I will be chatting about the new book he just brought out, 150 Strong; A Pathway to a Different Future by Rob O’Grady. 150 Strong is a valuable handbook for understanding the proper scale to successfully manage human affairs in the political scene of the coming decades, when the economies of everyday life contract to a far more local level. Rob O’Grady is an engineer and father of three who has been stirred to action by his reflections on environmental issues and his everyday encounters with the perversity of our current system. Trained in the discipline of “sustainability engineering,” he discerned early in his career that to talk of sustainability in the world of business and politics was “to pour from the empty into the void,” because the underlying context is subversive of such efforts.

New Interview with JHK about The Harrows of Spring

Praise for A History of the Future:
Kunstler skewers everything from kitsch to greed, prejudice, bloodshed, and brainwashing in this wily, funny, rip-roaring, and profoundly provocative page- turner, leaving no doubt that the prescriptive yet devilishly satiric A World Made by Hand series will continue.” — Booklist

    Great podcast! I agree with the idea of 150. Humans being what they are we should all remember The Great Bell Curve will move that number around. Funny, but I see shades of that in JHK’s WORLD MADE BY HAND books. Except for medical and communications we are moving towards a better world. Dmitry, you are a great spokes person for Rob. I wish Rob the best with his new writing career. Look forward to reading it after my WORLD MADE BY HAND reading orgy. Peace.

    First time I’ve heard Mr. Orlov. Thanks for the show. I totally agree with much of his sentiment regarding interpersonal relationships during/after a collapse.

    It’s nice to hear some sanity & pragmatism.

      Agreed. Head for the farm. My family had some great cherry trees sorry they are gone.
