Playing for Team Human today is permaculturalist Adam Brock, author of Change Here Now.
Adam joins Douglas for a conversation about how humanity is integrally connected to natural ecosystems. “Nature is a textbook,” Adam explains, and so by paying close attention to ecological systems, we can better understand ourselves as part of a greater whole. It’s a theme that serves as the springboard into a conversation not only about the ways we grow food, but also about community, trust, and the deeper sense of connection that comes from a permaculture mindset.
Rushkoff opens today’s show with a monologue about Amazon’s recent purchase of Whole Foods and how scaling up in the digital economy threatens to leave humans behind. It’s a monologue that celebrates the release of Rushkoff’s most recent book Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus: How Growth Became the Enemy of Prosperity in paperback with new expanded material.
