David Holmgren On His Essay 'Crash On Demand'

This upload features tracks from Little Milton, Bobby Byrd, The Fatback Band, Russ Henderson, Funkadelic and more.

Interviewing my old friend & teacher, co-originator of the Permaculture concept David Holmgren. We'll be talking about his latest controversial essay 'Crash on Demand: Welcome to the Brown Tech future' - which builds on his 'Future Scenarios' book published in 2007.

"David argues that if 10% of people from the global middle class reduce consumption by 50% and convert 50% of their assets to building household and local community resilience, then the fragile global economic system could crash sooner rather than later. Frightening as this seems, the longer massive economic contraction is delayed the more likely the affects of runaway climate change will eventuate".

Here's a link to his essay http://www.holmgren.com.au/wp-content...

What's it all about? Crash the system? Tune in and find out.

Mixing in some classic retro funk along the way.

Consider Miro (http://www.getmiro.com/) and Ubuntu One as alternative options to iPlayer. I know Open source and free content dose not make sense to everyone but some things need to be shared openly and without restriction.

No its not - sorry, not unless you have a program that'll do it for you. I'm in the process of putting it all on iTunes as podcasts - so will post here when that's complete

Any way to skip music when involved with what is being said.

Nice interview Stefan - god to hear david confirming that the message I largely the same as the one articulated in his essay on energy - when the work is done can you get him back on air to talk about 'retro-fitting the suburbs' - great music

Very good interview, thank you for posting. My only comment is that the musical interludes (while very nice songs) are a bit jarring in that they start rather suddenly and seem to be at a higher volume than the interview audio. Always great to hear David speak, and I love the discussions that have been generated from this new essay.

Thanks for the feedback PJ - it was the first interview I'd done on Skype, which made mixing that much more complicated - I'm trying to figure out the levels etc for the next show.
