Troy Vettese is an environmental historian, researcher and writer. In his texts—published in journals such as Bookforum, New Left Review, The Guardian, Jacobin, n+1 and Salvage—, he discusses the need to dismantle the world we have created in order to make the earth-system more stable. In doing so, he weaves together knowledge from environmental economics, animal studies, a critique of the neoliberal system and the history of energy. His book Half-Earth Socialism, co-authored with Drew Pendergrass, reactivates the imaginary of the left and of environmental movements by outlining possible strategies to defend life on the planet.

In this podcast we talk to Troy Vettese about veganism, ecology and geoengineering and about neoliberalism and the environmental crisis. We look at past examples of vegan socialist experiences and understand the urgency of including animal rights in radical thought. We also examine the tension between nature and the market, accepting the impossibility of dealing with the climate crisis through eco-modernist techno-solutions. Troy Vettese speaks about golf and birds, and about fiction as a necessary space in which to imagine futures: literature for thinking by planning and charting new horizons.

Conversation: Roc Jiménez de Cisneros and Anna Ramos. Script: Verónica Lahitte. Sound production: Violeta Ospina. Voice over: Javiera Cádiz. Sounds: field recordings by Jonáš Gruska and Dave Phillips.
