interview w/ douglas lain on abundant cities
interview w/ douglas lain: download/subscribe\archive
the latest special interview episode from media monarchy is an engaging conversation with author douglas lain, host of the diet soap podcast.
taking a page from a surrealist self-help book while working on our 'oregonization', our talk walks off the usual path & looks at what's right in our backyard: the opportunity for real community. this is being put into action by doug's new kickstarter project 'pick your battle: foraging as revolutionary self-help'.
this project aims to "organize local foraging, community gardens, psychogeographic field trips ... smashing the industrial food system with locally produced free food." or, as love & trash puts it: "the idea of abundant cities is almost embarrassingly easy. this project could help it become a household phrase."
