A Big Sur Podcast

A Big Sur Podcast

An ongoing conversation with people from near and far about Big Sur's past, present, and future. A Big Sur Podcast interprets 'community' to mean ALL people from around the world who are curious about, and who care about, the preservation and restoration of the wild and rural character of Big Sur. Stories are told by visitors and residents, plumbers and linesmen, musicians and authors, dancers and jugglers and others. Please email magnus@henrymiller.org with any comments, critique & suggestions. Sometimes we drift (way) off-topic into the arts, sciences, personal stories, gossip, politics, philosophy, ornithology, Henry Miller, and our zeitgeist in general. We like that! If you are planning a visit to Big Sur and you listen to some of the folks on this Podcast talk about their love of the place your visit will probably be a lot more rewarding. | Music clips courtesy John Holm: https://www.discogs.com/artist/374084-John-Holm | Sound editing by Hindenburg | Special thanks to Jim Agius. |

This again is a departure from Big Sur and back to the war in Ukraine.

I asked Anders Lindberg, the Political Editor-in-Chief of Aftonbladet, the largest newspaper in Sweden, if he would join us in A Big Sur Podcast to help us understand the situation in Sweden and the Nordic countries after the invasion of Ukraine. He very graciously accepted.

This is well worth listening to if you care about the war, and future peace, in Ukraine.

Peter Rosen is a long time Big Sur resident. He is known for his extraordinary feats of hang gliding far above the Santa Lucia Mountains! In recent years Peter is also known for hauling trash out of Big Sur. We are only touching on a few things in this brief conversation so I hope we'll have a 'chapter 2' soon.
