After a brief hiatus, EcoCast is happy to be back with a new episode! Our guest is Alda Bathrop-Lewis, research fellow at Australian Catholic University’s Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry, and author of the 2021 book Thoreau’s Religion: Walden Woods, Social Justice, and the Politics of Asceticism. We discuss what links aesthetics to asceticism, and challenge the popular image of Thoreau as a solo hero in the woods, instead recognizing his deep sense of community and inheritance. Due to the tricky nature of coordinating three distant time zones, Brandon was unable to join the conversation this month.Listen on Podbean Listen on Apple Podcasts Listen on Spotify
