“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

does the mp3 exist somewhere else? its gone. apropos: i was thinking it would be great to start a podcast feed with all the many hundreds of recordings. there are so many, it would be really helpful to have them all in one place and curated by you!. all the best tim
