122. Gordon White & Jay Springett // Solarpunk, Hopepunk & the Magic of Envisioning a Better Future
We’ve got a really cool episode here with Gordon White and Jay Springett.
Most of you know Gordon. He’s been here before, back in episode 66, and he’s the man behind the magic at the Rune Soup blog and podcast. He’s also the author of three books, StarShips, The Chaos Protocols and Pieces of Eight. And some of you in the Twitterverse surely know Jay. He’s @thejaymo out in those parts. Jay will tell us a bit about himself up front in the chat here, so I won’t repeat any of that, but this chat is focused on one of Jay’s chief concerns and passions - and one of Gordon’s as well - and that is the movement known as solarpunk.
What is solarpunk? Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like, and we’ll explain it in the discourse you’re about to hear.
One caveat before we get to it, though: Jay and Gordon only had an hour to chat, so no Patreon extension here. Gordon and Jay were actually hanging out together down on Gordon’s farm, which Gordon had just returned to after some crazy wildfires in his area, and I did not want to monopolize much of their time, so we covered as much as we could in that hour, with the hopes of giving some context to this solarpunk thing and also laying the foundation for the ideas both in the narrative of this show and, more importantly, in your consciousness.
