If material, economic growth is merely an illusion within a closed-loop system, what does it mean to re-orient towards the growth of intimacy, depth, complexity, and diversity? What does "Indigenous thinking" mean, if not some monolithic, prescriptive way of seeing the world?

In this episode, we welcome Dr. Tyson Yunkaporta, an academic, an arts critic, and a researcher who is a member of the Apalech Clan in far north Queensland. He carves traditional tools and weapons and also works as a senior lecturer in Indigenous Knowledges at Deakin University in Melbourne.

Dr. Yunkaporta is the author of Sand Talk: How Indigenous Thinking Can Save The World.

The musical offering in this episode is Karma by Sarah Kinsley.
