Introducing Dustbowl Diatribes

Spencer Hess and I (Laurie Johnson) are getting ready to launch our new podcast, Dustbowl Diatribes, with a discussion of the US Dustbowl in the 1930’s in all its ramifications. But this isn’t a history podcast. The dustbowl symbolizes a slow moving disaster–environmental, economic, spiritual, political–which is materializing even now. We will be getting at this topic at first through an examination of Hannah Holleman’s Dustbowls of Empire, 2018.

The Dustbowl isn’t just a strange episode in environmental history in the US in the 20th Century–it is an ongoing phenomenon and a sign of things to come. We are here to help you get ready.

If all goes well, our first episode will come out at the end of March or in early April!
