Just reporting back here as ordered, Commander!! [snappy salute]

Another podcast I like, called "The Extra-Environmentalist", accepts voicemail Letters to the Editor via Skype. I left them a long voicemail with my favorite fiction sources, and of course Escape Pod was prominent among them. (I cited a bunch of EP episodes that dealt with the Apocalypse, including one of my favorites "Tideline", because the Extra-Environmentalist focuses a lot on the collapse of civilization.  Their podcast also often talks about Economics and "Debt Currency", so I had to cite Pseudopod #6, "What Dead People Are Supposed To Do"...)

My voicemail starts at the 2:15:00 mark in this episode:
(Yes, these guys publish very long podcasts)

Just to reciprocate, I highly recommend the "Extra-Environmentalist" podcast -- in fact, I volunteered to create T-shirts with their logo for their fans!

The two guys who run the "Extra-Environmentalist" podcast have a great, casual, relaxed interview style which nevertheless asks hard questions -- and they select fascinating authors to interview, people who I really believe have firm perspectives on the decline and fall of our civilization. Another letter correspondent described this podcast as "All the Doom without the Gloom," and that really sums it up. The times are changin', but it doesn't necessarily have to be a tragedy. Check out the "Extra-Environmentalist" whenever you're not listening to the Escape Artists!
