Episode Info: “Perhaps it is only by imagining the end of the world that we can begin to imagine a better one.”~ James Bradley, author of ‘Ghost Species’ and the essay ‘Unearthed: Last Days of the Anthropocene’ In 2018, Stuart Rosson published his first fiction novel, ‘East’, set in the 2720s – at a time when our current civilisation is long forgotten. In The Regenerative Hour he shares his thoughts about the impending societal collapse, which more and more people anticipate in the near future, and how we best prepare for what is coming. The Carbon March to CanberraStuart is part of a group planning a major #BurstTheBubble walk, inspired by Gandhi’s historic Salt March, to the Federal Parliament in Canberra, with the first steps being taking already on 4 February 2020, and with much bigger and more ambitious plans for September, aspiring to gather up to 400,000 Australians at the steps of the Parliament building for an entire week or more. About Stuart Rosson Born in Geelong, south west of Melbourne, Australia, Stuart Rosson was educated at Geelong College and Deakin University. After a Bachelor of Science and a brief foray into molecular biology, he studied journalism before landing a job as the medical and science writer for the Sun News Pictorial in Melbourne. Throughout the mid to late 80’s he covered news and feature stories relating to every aspect of science, health and medicine. Returning from overseas in 1989, he purchased a restaurant – casting himself as manager and chef of a small French eatery. The restaurant was listed in the Age Good Food Guide but, fell victim to the localised recession which followed the collapse of Geelong’s home-grown building society. Moving to Torquay on the Surfcoast, he spent most of the 90’s managing the mountainwear division of a local surf company, where he was often co-opted into writing marketing copy for the global corporation. After leaving the Surf Industry he studied natural medicine and astrology, and went on to practice as a naturopath until 2009. He claims the idea for ‘East’ came to him whilst up a ladder cleaning out the gutters at his mother’s house. By the time he came down the ladder he had the ‘bare bones’ of the plot for all three books. The first book in the trilogy was completed a few years ago, but went on the shelf whilst he built himself a house in Torquay. After being edited by accomplished local editor, Nan McNab, ‘East’ was released in November 2018.
