#122 - The Rise of Ecofascism, Part One

EIn part one, we unpack the history of ecofascism. The ideology written in the manifestos of terrorists. We trace back the movement to its beginnings in German philosophy, Eugenics, Hitler's 'blood and soil' slogans and Norse mythology. We also examine how overpopulation has changed meaning over the past few decades - and how all of this is linked to environmentalism.

#116 - Rekindling Cultural Burning

Bushfire season in Australia is starting earlier every year, going for longer, and bringing more destructive fires. Fire authorities do their best to prevent and limit this destruction, as climate change makes their jobs ever more difficult. But are we looking at Australia's relationship the right way? Aboriginal people have been managing the landscape with fire for thousands of years, and still do. We look at how Aboriginal fire knowledge is being revived, and what it means for fire management in Australia. Featuring: Oliver Costello, founding director of the Firesticks Alliance Indigenous Corporation Peta-Marie Standley, cultural burning researcher at James Cook University Jacqueline Gothe, associate professor at the University of Technology Sydney School of Design
