Return guest Simplicity Institute founder Dr Samuel Alexander ponders whether the environment can survive the human brain’s emotional biases, and what can the environmental movement can do to get a message out in a 'post-truth' era?

And we talk lessons from the dirty ol' bastard of ancient greek philosophers: Diogenese.

Sam's latest books are Just Enough is Plenty: Thoreau’s Alternative Economics and Deface the Currency: The Lost Dialogues of Diogenes. He also mentions The Dark Cellars Project in which artists submit images that make the messages of voluntary simplicity a bit more visceral and visual.
