Why The Living Earth Connection?

Posted in Ecology, Media with tags , , , , , , , on April 25, 2012 by Amy Gustin

I recorded The Living Earth Connection radio trilogy to serve as an introduction to the ideas of author Daniel Quinn.  As we face global ecological catastrophe, and a myriad of social problems, our ability to solve the problems we face is hindered by our cultural myths and misunderstandings.  It is extremely important to get at the root causes of our multiplicity of problems.  With his understanding of the whole human story, and ecological insight, Daniel Quinn identifies the root causes of what’s gone wrong here.  It is vitally important to incorporate Daniel Quinn’s insightful analysis into our efforts to avert further ecological catastrophe and transform the world.

For a new understanding of our culture, please listen to The Living Earth Connection. Part 1 can be downloaded here.   Part 1 will air on KMUD 91.1 Garberville, 88.1 Eureka, 90.3 Laytonville, and 99.5 Shelter Cove, on Sunday, April 29th, at 9:30 a.m..   It will air live, and be archived at as well. Part 2 will air on July 29th, and part 3 will air on September 30th.  I will post part 2 and 3 here soon.

Of course, I also highly recommend reading Daniel Quinn’s books for yourself, especially Ishmael, The Story of B, My Ishmael, and Beyond Civilization.  Go to for more information.
