#03 Alastair McIntosh: Exploring Scotland and spirituality

In the third episode of Spoken Earth, Adam Weymouth speaks with the Scottish writer, academic and activist Alastair McIntosh. McIntosh is a Scottish writer, academic and activist. He is the author of several books, including Poacher's Pilgrimage and Hell and High Water, and most famously, Soil and Soul: People Versus Corporate Power. McIntosh works in the discipline of human ecology, which explores the tangled web of connections between “the natural environment and the social environment,” bringing politics, economics, sociology and more within the realm of a more traditional ecology. In particular, McIntosh, who is a practising Quaker, is interested in extending the discipline to encompass both psychology and spirituality. All of his work, whether through his activism, his teaching, his speaking or his writing, is focused on opening us up to that multidisciplinary approach. He pays particular attention to the restoration and rekindling of community, and says that more than anything, what the world needs today is a deepening of spiritual vision.

#02 Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing: The mushroom at the end of the world

In the second episode of Spoken Earth, Adam Weymouth speaks with Professor Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing about her book The Mushroom at the End of the World, and how the matsutake mushroom can help us to see ourselves in another light. A professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, Tsing's latest book takes the matsutake mushroom as its subject, a luxury product traded for vast sums in Japan, but one that refuses to be cultivated. It thrives best where old growth forest has been logged, and Tsing explores these landscapes, in particular in the Pacific Northwest. Here, she discovers various migrants and others characters making a living from the crop in these ruined landscapes, and the sprawling networks of global supply chains that refuse to be standardised. By examining the webs that hold all these different elements in place, she suggests a new way to conceive of nature. Not as something external, on a one way trajectory towards decay, but as a messy network of b...

#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.
