KENN ORPHAN is our guest for the entire hour. Kenn is an artist, writer, radical nature lover, weary but committed activist, and hospice social worker. He writes about art and culture, socio-economic injustice, geopolitical issues and the existential threats we collectively face from corporate capitalism, the war industry, climate change, and an ever imperiled biosphere. Kenn’s work focuses on the desperate need for a global paradigm shift that fosters compassion for and solidarity with the suffering of humanity and the countless other species with whom we share this precious planet. He blogs at kennorphan.com. The intent of Kenn's blog is to bear witness to the dire events unfolding around us without any pretense of false hope and to share insights and reflections through the transformative lens of solidarity.
