Maren is a writer, podcaster & curious free-thinker, currently working with her partner Jake on a multimedia project called Death in the Garden, which explores the complex intersection of the cycle of life and death, holism, climate change, civilization, ecology, and psychology from the perspective of two millennials on a journey to make sense of our very nuanced world. I invited Maren on the podcast to speak about our society’s proclivity to seek out easy solutions to complex problems, how our focus on symptoms rather than systems prevents meaningful change and how embracing responsibility and rejecting blame in our personal lives is the only way to think critically, be honest with ourselves and work to construct meaningful community, empowered activism & a rejection of the status quo.
Songs featured: “Dying to Live” by Jonny Lang & “Home” by Caribou
