John Michael Greer, an old friend of the podcast, blogs at Ecosophia, subtitle, Toward an Ecological Spirituality. JMG has been an astute observer of the Western world’s arduous economic and cultural descent, and is the author of many books, both novels and non-fiction, including Green Wizardry, After Oil, The Wealth of Nature, and Not the Future We Ordered. Star’s Reach, is a novel set 400 years ahead in America’s neo-medieval future. We chat about his latest book, coming out this spring, The King in Orange, a meditation on the relationship between archetype psychology and the occult as acted out in politics and culture.

The KunstlerCast theme music is the beautiful Two Rivers Waltz written and performed by Larry Unger.

    Kunstler articles and videos always stimulate hundreds of reader/listener comments almost instantly. Why none for this interview? I don’t get it.

      Loved this podcast! From my heart, thank you gentlemen for this conversation. Long time reader of each of your blogs and paperbacks. In this rather strange and dark time; your insights, brilliance and rich delivery have endowed me with the competency to ask myself ‘how then shall we live?’ – in concrete and philosophical terms. In short, for the last 8 years I have remained committed to learning and practicing many of the topics you have covered – towards literacy in; energy/ regenerative agriculture/human behavior/history/self introspection and more. Truly grateful.

        True, sheila. I always enjoy their perspectives, and a creamy nougat center of humor.

      diamondlou, or some reason or another all the comments tend to land over at Jim’s op-ed/blog.

      In any case, it’s always a treat to have JMG on. While I am more a fan of his collapse works, I am looking forward to TKIO.
