Have we podfaded? You might say so. We do plan to make our return, though we’ve suffered setback after setback. Expect the podcast to resume some time in 2008—though, possibly as late as August.
In the meantime, you can still download the old episodes here. Note: These all appear in M4A format, so you might have problems with players other than iTunes. We’ll try to convert these into MP3 soon.
The Anthropik Podcast, Season #1
With guest Daniel Quinn
The Anthropik Podcast begins the same way the Tribe of Anthropik did: with Daniel Quinn, the author of “Ishmael.” We talk about what it is that makes a tribe, a “tribe,” with the man who started the New Tribal Revolution.
With guest Michael Green
The Fifth World launched last week at thefifthworld.com, using a wiki to create an open source, communal vision of a sustainable, shamanic future for humanity. We were deeply inspired by Afterculture, an “anthropology of the future” by artist Michael Green. We talk to Green about his Afterculture project, and finding a positive vision of a sustainable future.
With guest Richard Manning
With guest Jeff Vail
The death of al-Zarqawi provides a starting point for a discussion of the epochal conflict of the 21st century: hierarchy vs. rhizome. We talk to Jeff Vail, author of A Theory of Power, about the notion of rhizome. We also talk about our own experiment with rhizome: the Appalachian Confederation.
With guest Toby Hemenway
Jason’s garnered a reputation as a permaculture skeptic, but it turns out that even he’s not so far removed from permaculture guru and activist Toby Hemenway. This episode features a discussion about the continuum of (potentially) sustainable subsistence techniques from foraging to permaculture.
With guest John Michael Greer
Why do some societies collapse quickly, while others struggle on for centuries? We talk to John Michael Greer about his theory of catabolic collapse, on how the process of collapse can snowball and take on a momentum of its own.
With guest Richard Heinberg
Richard Heinberg joins us for a discussion of peak oil and our chance for an orderly, voluntary “powerdown.”
With guest Sheryl Paul
Thanks to the magic of the interwebs, this podcast is being published at the very same time that Jason & Giuli are getting married. They talk about their wedding from a tribal and a Jungian perspective, and interview Sheryl Paul, author of The Conscious Bride.
