Shift Happens,” the long-running Kootenay Co-op Radio show from Nelson BC, has transitioned to a weekly podcast. The inaugural offering is an interview with me based on my new book of poems and focused on what the society that emerges after the current virus pandemic eases might be like.

Tag-team interviewers Jeff Pilsner and Ana Bokstrom of New Denver BC, the podcast’s originators and hosts, aim to continue the program’s goal of exploring ideas not always considered in the “national conversation” or by the standard media outlets. Their concern is to explore which values are helpful and which detrimental to our human and biological communities.
