First Episode of Post Growth Australia Podcast (PGAP)

What is the steady state economy why is it better than the growth economy we already have?

For the first episode of Post-Growth Australia Podcast,  host Michael Bayliss is joined by Jonathan Miller  (steady state ACT) and Martin Tye (CASSE) who explain why the steady state economy is every bit as interesting and dynamic as what we have now,  just MUCH better for the future of the planet.

Michael also plays the audio excerpt from the popular short animation ‘The Endless Growth Paradigm’  and a hot new single  from a hot new environmental music project –  ‘The End Of History’  as performed by ‘Counting Backwards’

In this episode, I played the audio excerpt from the short animation ‘The Endless Growth Paradigm.‘ By clicking on the hyperlink you can see the video in full, even if you don’t agree with all of the message I think we can all agree that this is some stunning art work.

We played ‘The End Of History’ was the first ever single release performed by ‘Counting Backwards.’ The group is a Melbourne based project that focus on environmental and existential themed. The song was released to raise funds for Extinction Rebellion. It would be lovely to visit and support this project further on their Bandcamp page – we will need local music in the new post-growth society so in the meantime our local musicians need all the support they can get!
