In Episode #18, a discussion from June 2020 we discuss the physical and spiritual return to the land, to a sense of rurality and of knowledge and to our humanity with artist and writer Levi Baruch

In Episode #18 ‘Reconnect to Your Humanity’ we discuss the physical and spiritual return to the land, to a sense of rurality and of knowledge and to our humanity with Wesleyan student Levi Baruch. 

Levi Baruch is a 20 year old student, writer, and multidisciplinary artist. He is far from home now, studying landscape architecture and fine art cartography in Los Angeles. As briefly discussed, upcoming projects include research on the Swift River Valley and Quabbin reservoir as a framework to explore the weaponization of water against communities that threaten the status quo. Interview, folklore, photography, and historical ephemera will assist in showing these stories.

Levi is looking forward to a return to his home in the woods of Orange, Massachusetts.
