KUT Radio’s Jennifer Stayton will interview University of Texas professor Robert Jensen about his new book, Plain Radical: Living, Loving, and Learning to Leave the Planet Gracefully at the Holy Grounds coffee shop. The book sketches the comprehensive radical politics of Jensen’s late friend and comrade Jim Koplin. Drawing on first-hand stories and the nearly 3,000 pages of correspondence that flowed between the two men between 1988 and 2012, the book is part love story, part intellectual memoir, and part political polemic—an argument for how we should understand problems and think about solutions to create a decent human future, if there is to be a human future at all.
