Surviving the Apocalypse in the Suburbs


What if you had three weeks to prepare for a life-changing disaster? A severe ice storm, earthquake, flood, or something similar? Wendy Brown says that preparing for disaster leaves us better equipped for the changes that are happening right now. Carl Etnier interviews Brown about her book, Surviving the Apocalypse in the Suburbs: The thrivalist's guide to life without oil.

Note: The second part of the audio file is a now outdated legislative update for Vermont on issues related to the show's theme of energy, food, and the local economy at the end of the age of oil.
