#01 Hugh Brody: Life in the Arctic and Indigenous philosophies

In the first episode of Lacuna Magazine's new environmental podcast, Spoken Earth, award-winning author Adam Weymouth speaks with British anthropologist Hugh Brody, discussing land rights, his time in the Arctic, and the hunter-gatherer view of the world. Brody demonstrates how what we believe to be universal truths in fact pertain only to the farmers’ way of conceiving of the world. The indigenous viewpoint is radically different, and one which could teach us much about our own. Yet these ways of life are being eradicated at an ever increasing rate, and now cling on at only the most inhospitable corners of our planet. Brody has made much of his life in these places, and the insights that he has brought back from them are essential.
