Responsibilities of Teaching, Preaching, Reporting, Writing, and Speaking Out

In the face of multiple, cascading crises—economic and ecological, political and cultural—it is more important than ever to confront the reality of the threats we face. Based on a calm apocalypticism and a common-sense approach to intellectual life, We Are All Apocalyptic Now offers a framework for understanding our moment in history and the obligations of those who are trying to communicate that understanding to a wider world.

Host Sylvia Richardson speaks to Robert Jensen about the recent truckers protest in Canada and the politics of division, how to respond to different world views for environmental change, how do we confront difference weather man or women or different cultures. How to think about cultural change in the modern world.
