[Intro: 9:52 | Article: http://bit.ly/GRramon] Acausal heathen poet and author Ramon Elani joins me to discuss his new book 'Wyrd Against the Modern World' published through Night Forest Press. This audio interview is actually a reading of a written interview I conducted with him, originally published at the Gods&Radicals Press supporter-only blog Another World. From the article introduction: “The implications of global climate change have loomed large in my mind and heart for years, and I’m sure many of you reading this can relate. The existential questions this inevitably brings up have been some of the central, binding subjects of my work. I’ve worked to address the roots of this complex catastrophe through various angles, attempting, in my own small way, to highlight the nature of this earth-encompassing shift in our planet’s biospheric composition, and explore what this means through a number of different lenses. “Human beings are social, cultural, emotional, spiritual creatures, and I doubt we are alone in this. The inevitable despair that emerges as we recognize that this titanic shift threatens the survival of future generations of human and more-than-human life in the decades to come can be debilitating, even more so when we take into account that much of what we fear is going to happen is already happening right now. Numerous scientists have observed climatic events occurring that were initially predicted to happen decades from now. “The future, as it were, has quickened to meet us.” Ramon Elani holds a PhD in Literature from the University of Connecticut. He lives on a small homestead with his wife and children among the hills and forests of New England. A former muay tai fighter and professor of literature and philosophy, Ramon has published on a wide variety of topics at the intersection of ecology and spirituality. He writes The Tiger’s Leap blog.
