KunstlerCast #215: JHK is back – Nicole Foss Interview

Economic contraction and the fate of the nation

Released: January 31, 2013

JHK steps up to resume the KunstlerCast solo without Duncan Crary. I’ll do interviews with guests sometimes, and sometimes I will just yak on my own. This week I was fortunate to have Nicole Foss of TheAutomaticEarth.com swing by as an overnight houseguest and we got to sit down at the microphones for a chat. Nicole is a veteran of Canadian government’s electrical ministry and has worked in the nuclear energy ministries of the UK and the European Union. She has lectured all over Europe, the USA, Australia and New Zealand in recent years.

The new KunstlerCast theme music is called “Adam and Ali’s Waltz” from the new recording Waiting to Fly by Mike and Ali Vass.
