This conversation is the first of a series of guest-hosted episode. David Bilbrey, someone I’ve been speaking with for years about sitting down and recording some podcasts of his own, takes over the role of host and records an interview with Eric Chisler, one of my community members at Seppi’s Place.
Eric devotes his energy on emerging systems, and the stories of communities, cooperative, and alternative economics. Through our time together I always enjoyed the deep, heady conversations we had about all of these subjects, as well as lighter ones, such as heavy metal music or Western martial arts.
During our many conversations together he also introduced me to many of the thinkers and theorists you’ll hear mentioned today. I highly recommend listening to the video with Murray Bookchin posted below, and I’ll be seeking out David Graeber’s Debt, while already a copy of Charles Eisenstein’s The Ascent of Humanity rests on my bookshelf, ready to read once I finish an upcoming move.
Enjoy what Eric has to share, and let me know your thoughts.
How would you build community? What about living in The Gift? Are you ready to make a leap?
Feel free to get in touch.
