    e89 excerpts from ben okri’s ‘artists must confront the climate crisis’

    Today’s episode features quotes from Artists must confront the climate crisis – we must write as if these are the last days by Nigerian novelist and poet Ben Okri from the November 12, 2021 edition of The Guardian newspaper. Here is the first quote from Ben Okri’s article: ‘Here we are on the edges of the biggest crisis that has ever faced us. We need a new philosophy for these times, for this near-terminal moment in the history of the human. It is out of this I want to propose an existential creativity.’ This episode includes an excerpt from episode 87 kendra fanconi.
