Podcast from the Prairie - Episode 7: “The Restless and Relentless Mind of Wes Jackson”

In this final episode of the first season of “Podcast from the Prairie,” Wes Jackson and Robert Jensen reverse roles. Jackson asks the questions about Jensen’s new book, The Restless and Relentless Mind of Wes Jackson: Searching for Sustainability, which summarizes key ideas from Jackson’s work over the past half-century. What led Jensen to write the book? Why did Jensen think Jackson’s ideas—which can be found not only in five books but in countless articles and lectures—needed to be presented in a short volume? Does Jackson think that Jensen got it right? How does Jackson’s work relate to Jensen’s previous work on radical feminism and left politics?
