Today we begin the first of a 3 Part Podcast with David Korowicz, a Physicist and Human Systems Ecologist doing research for the FEASTA organization who also has his own blog at DavidKorowicz.com

David is best known in the Collapse Blogosphere for his Research Papers
Trade Off: Financial system supply-chain cross contagion – a study in global systemic collapse  and Tipping Point: Near-Term Systemic Implications of a Peak in Global Oil Production – An Outline Review Catastrophic Shocks in Complex Socio-Economic Systems—a pandemic perspective, which analyze the parameters involved in Fast Collapse scenarios.

Part 1 of the podcast focuses on the effects of Lock-in, Irreversibility and Tipping Points in Complex Systems.  We look at analogies to biological systems as well as geophysical systems in this podcast.

Part 2 of the Podcast features discussion of Financial Contagion as well as alternative Currency regimes and replacement monetary systems.

Part 3 looks at possible solutions from both Top Down planning and Bottom Up construction of more resilient systems, as well as Community Development and Planning.

As we air them, the following 2 parts of the Podcast will appear here in this article, as well as on the Podcast Page of the Doomstead Diner.

" As a daily reader of all of the doomsday blogs, e.g. the Diner, Nature Bats Last, Zerohedge, Scribbler, etc… I must say that I most look forward to your “off the microphone” rants. Your analysis, insights, and conclusions are always logical, well supported, and clearly articulated – a trifecta not frequently achieved."- Joe D
