Podcast from the Prairie - Episode 6: “Hogs Are Up: Stories of the Land, with Digressions”
In this penultimate episode of the first season of “Podcast from the Prairie,” Wes Jackson and Robert Jensen discuss Jackson’s new book, Hogs Are Up: Stories of the Land, with Digressions. The stories in the book move from Jackson’s childhood on a Kansas farm, through his academic career, to the founding and growth of The Land Institute. Jackson’s stories not only entertain but challenge us to think critically about society and ecology. Jackson reflects on his work in the movements to create a sustainable agriculture and deepen ecological education through reflection that are sometimes funny, always engaging.
