Orion Editors Out Loud: January/February 2012

Orion editors Chip Blake, Jennifer Sahn, and Jason Houston discuss the January/Feburary 2012 issue of Orion, including an exclusive interview between veteran environmental journalist/author Terry Tempest Williams and Tim DeChristopher on the eve of DeChristopher’s lockup in a federal penitentiary; Luis Urrea’s witty yet poignant new column The Wastelander; and an iconoclastic essay by Paul Kingsnorth titled “Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist” — an essay that is sure to generate a lot of conversation on our website. Photo Editor Jason Houston also discusses this issue’s dramatic photo essay about farmers in rural India committing suicide, as well as how Orion covers are selected.
