The gold standard in podcasting for me is the always enlightening C-Realm podcast hosted by “KMO”. A recent two part interview KMO did with Charles Eisenstein, author of a new book called Sacred Economics: Money, Gift, and Society in the Age of Transition, will be of particular interest to Root Simple readers.
The interview covers a wide range of topics including the creation of a gift economy, collapse and transformation. I especially like Eisenstein’s critique of the myth of separateness and the need for building community resiliency as opposed to unabomber-style “let’s run off to the woods and avoid the zombie apocalypse.” Spoiler alert: the zombies will find your cabin.
Here’s part one of the interview: “Emperor of What?“
And Part II: “From the Heart to the Fringe“
Eisenstein’s book is being serialized on Reality Sandwich here.
