The KunstlerCast is a weekly audio program (and now a book) about “the tragic comedy of suburban sprawl.” Featuring: James Howard Kunstler, author of The Geography of Nowhere, The Long Emergency, the World Made By Hand novels, and other books about suburbia, cities and American culture. Duncan Crary, host/producer, speaks with Kunstler weekly about the failure of suburbia and the inevitable end of this living arrangement with no future. New episodes are released Thursday nights.

I believe a lot of people share my feelings about the tragic landscape of highway strips, parking lots, housing tracts, mega-malls, junked cities, and ravaged countryside that makes up the everyday environment where most Americans live and work.
– James Howard Kunstler,
from The Geography of Nowhere
