Degrowth Montreal: interviews with keynotes/participants

Last May there was a degrowth conference in Montreal. I was only able to attend part of the conference, which had some very innovative presentations on how to rethink and reground economics in terms compatible with our growing understanding of complex systems. These took a variety of approaches from physics, biology, religion, ethics and so forth. A set of interviews with participants has recently been made available here. And I have embedded the interviews below. After trying unsuccessfully to embed the file they are best listened to on the site, or go straight to them through this link. They are all in one large file, so there is an index below if you wish to skip ahead or otherwise listen selectively.
