Three Latest Videos on New York City’s lockdown with Me and’s Rob Harper

on May 16, 2020 in Audio, Nonjudgment, Stories

I can’t describe the unexpected fun and growth coming from my conversations with Rob. When I learned of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s friendship with Antonin Scalia, I couldn’t get it. How could one tolerate someone who worked to make the world the opposite of what they wanted, especially with the stakes so high? Reading John Stuart Mill’s On Liberty, I intellectually understood his point that you have to share your ideas[…] Keep reading →

Lockdown reflections, locked down with family for the first time since the 70s (with Robjh from Magamedia)

on April 23, 2020 in Audio, Relationships

Rob and I have created a series of one-on-one reflections on inside views on the lockdown. In my case, I haven’t lived this closely with my mom since before school—not college, not high school, but school, meaning kindergarten. Among other things, I share on a flare-up between my step-father and me and how I plan to resolve it. Also my comparisons between generational differences today and in All in the[…] Keep reading →

See me on for one of my favorite interviews, “A Different Look at Climate Change”

on December 23, 2019 in Audio, Leadership, Nature

Yes, that’s Maga as in Donald Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again,” and yes, I consider it one of my favorite interviews. To clarify, we spoke about the environment more generally than just climate. Watch and listen to our conversation’s other articles on climate criticize Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Al Gore, Greta Thunberg, the Green New Deal, and others. One article calls climate change: a hoax, folks. It is a get[…] Keep reading →

The New Right Network hosted me for its Environment Town Hall. Watch the Video.

on May 27, 2020 in Leadership, Nature

Few associate environmental action with the American political right. Many think that community doesn’t care about clean air, water, and land. I don’t buy it. I think they care as much as anyone. How they act is another story, but I see almost no one on the American political left acting any more. I believe politics has made a wedge issue out of something everyone cares about, leading one side[…] Keep reading →

331: Rob Harper, part 2: A Pro-Trump View

on April 24, 2020 in Podcast

Our second recorded conversation covered Rob’s experience with separating his recycling. The first time we met we meant to record but ended up speaking for three hours, partly meeting as person-to-person and also talking about what people in this country with differing political views probably used to but don’t any more. We also ate my famous no-packaging vegetable stew—a delicious way to minimize polluting. The second time we recorded, but[…] Keep reading →
