"In this episode, Mexie interviews Becky Ellis, a PhD candidate at the University of Western Ontario and the host of the Permaculture fo the People podcast, about how and why permaculture is important for envisioning a sustainable post-capitalist future. Becky explains the fundamentals of permaculture and why the ethics of permaculture are inherently radical. We discuss issues around colonial-capitalist property regimes that both leftist and permaculture movements must address, as well as how permaculture can add to other radical social movements concerned with both human and animal liberation. To thrive in the 21st century, our post-capitalist world-building needs to radically re-envision our relationships to one another as well as to all of the other species in the ecosystems of which we form part."
"In this episode Marine and Mexie reunite once again to discuss creative and revolutionary ideas for movement building. Our discussion was inspired by reading adrienne marie brown’s Emergent Strategy. Drawing on quotes and concepts from her book, we consider how curiosity about natural ecosystems and biomimicry as well as a reclamation of creativity and imagination can enhance our social and economic justice movements and help us to realize abundant, emancipatory futures. We also talk about the importance of moving from movements based around charismatic leaders and critical mass to ones based around critical connections, where the strength of our movements lie in the strength and depth of our relationships and our ability to dream together. We hope this will be productive for people interested in reclaiming our collective future! We’re very interested to know what you think."
