Living in the Time of Dying – Full Interview with Michael Shaw

It’s the holiday season and that means this episode is a rerun of sorts.  You’ll hear the full interview with Australian-based documentarian Michael Shaw on his piece “Living in the Time of Dying” which you can see for free at livinginthetimeofdying.com and a rerun of my conversation with Oregon State University’s Dr. Steve Strauss on genetically engineered trees.


“Living in the Time of Dying”.

A documentary about facing the truth about climate change

We live in a time where politicians, prioritizing growth and profit, are in denial of the science of climate change. Consequently we are caught in a system that creates and increases the damage we are causing to the planet and all its life forms.  Living in the Time of Dying dives into an exploration of what it would mean to accept the science is true.

We explore how to find the inner resources to meet the changes in ways that keep us connected to the earth, to each other and to our sacred obligations.

Director and producer Michael Shaw goes on a journey to speak to those who have the courage to say what no one else is saying and who have found the strength to bring meaning to the conversation. Interviews with: Professor of Sustainability, Jem Bendell; Dharma teacher and author, Catherine Ingram; Award winning journalist and author, Dahr Jamail and Native American Elder, author and teacher Stan Rushworth.
