Coast to Coast interviews of John Robbins.
George Noory’s wildly popular show, aired on more than 500 AM radio stations, spends the second half of this hour-long segment interviewing John Robbins about The New Good Life.
Also during the first hour, dietary expert John Robbins talks about the need to move away from a lifestyle centered around commercialism. He observed that what he calls the “consumer trance” has resulted in the unfortunate problem of people thinking that “our self-worth is just a matter of our net worth.” Additionally, it has created a standard of living that he believes will become unsustainable as oil grows scarce. As such, Robbins anticipated a “new economy” on the horizon and encouraged people to learn to be able to “distinguish their wants from their needs,” a mindset that he called “incredibly empowering.”
