Listen to a Half Hour Interview with Me Discussing the Bioregional State

(The politically crushed zero-emission, no-oil, all-electric, 'EV1' cars by General Motors, from the movie Who Killed the Electric Car? (2006))

Today we learn more about politics that stop sustainability, and politics that can implement it. I just finished a 30 minute interview webcast via BlogTalkRadio, talking about the bioregional state. Listen for yourselves here or here (scroll down to my name, click 'play').

It was on James Robey's Radio Show for the Water Fuel Museum. The typical discussions of this program run to the material, though we stretched some minds on how important it is to think of political organizations of democracy to protect more optimal materials from political corruption that can demote them and that has demoted them in the past.

After listening to it myself, I thought it was a good discussion of some themes of the bioregional state.

You can share the link and listen to the recording online; and you can download the program from this other page.

Hi, Burr. I read about you:

"The director of the center since 1987, Burr Williams, has developed a unique style of education and co-learning through various interactive modalities centered on
storytelling and hands-on investigation.....Consequently, I am intrigued by the way Burr consistently activates energy and enthusiasm about an area commonly considered a “wasteland.” People of all ages who have been touched by his stories and activities begin to see with different eyes, to appreciate the uniqueness of this environment, and to understand how this place, the Llano Estacado, shapes them in deep and sometimes inexplicable ways. My goal in this fieldwork is to be a participant observer of this process of education at the center, to engage in as many activities sponsored by the center as possible, and to witness the engagement...."

Burr, like you, I similarly 'adopted' an area in Wisconsin for a long period of time--a month of Sundays or so--and told stories about it in poem/prose:

Maybe we will meet someday. I think I would enjoy that. Peace to you and congratulations on making people see and feel something real in Texas instead of just the typical dismissive "flat, brown and ugly."

Greetings,

My name is Bill Hawthorne, and I represent maacenter.org, a leading web resource for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma cancer information. Our organization is dedicated to increasing awareness of the terrible health consequences of asbestos exposure through the distribution of the best informational materials and public outreach efforts.

I found your site through a search and decided to contact you because of its high environmental and green presence which is extremely important in our movement. Your viewers are extremely savvy and motivated. The promotion of how buildings should now be built using sustainable green products to avoid asbestos and mesothelioma as well as the awareness of past buildings and preventative steps in avoiding asbestos exposure are extremely important. My goal is to get a resource link on your site/blog or even to provide a guest posting to be placed.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to check out our website. Thank you for your time and consideration.
