Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Robert Jensen is a professor in the School of Journalism at the University of Texas. He discusses his book, Plain Radical: Living, Loving, and Learning to Leave the Planet Gracefully.

He calls this book a "polemical memoir" in that it is a story of his mentor and friend, Jim Koplin, and their twenty-five year relationship. Thus it is a memoir. But it is polemical and political in that this relationship shaped Robert's life and his radical views toward life.

Ultimately, this book is an invitation to be human as industrial civilization collapses and takes the eco-system with it. How do we navigate this coming chaos summoning the best of what makes us human as opposed to the worst? How do we leave the planet gracefully?

This is an interview and a book you will want to share with other awakened individuals who both grieve and hope.

Jensen's eleven general audience books include, The Heart of Whiteness: Confronting Race, Racism, and White Privilege, We Are All Apocalyptic Now: On the Responsibilities of Teaching, Preaching, Reporting, Writing, and Speaking Out, and the forthcoming, The End of Patriarchy: Radical Feminism for Men.
