Ryerro, I am glad to see I am not the only one following Kunstler.
I enjoy his podcasts.
I come from the pre TV era when the radio was often on and talking in the
background as my mother cooked and cleaned and ran our boarding house.
During WW II men came from all over the country to Detroit to build
the machines of war in what had been the car factories. My parents turned
the upstairs into rooms for rent . My mother cooked two meals a day
and cleaned the big 11 room house. The radio was company and
entertainment for her as she worked. At night everyone sat around a huge
radio in the living room and listened to various radio programs.
Today I click on my computer and listen to radio programs from north Florida
where I lived and worked for many years. Podcasts from Kunstler and others
add to "my listening pleasure". Often my ipod follows me into the garden
and keeps me company.
We often forget how much things have changed and continue to change.
