If you’ve listened to books by Wendell Berry before, how does this one compare?
This interview is from the 80s and just doesn't have much to it. Berry's work usually has deep insights and perspectives I have never considered before. This interview does not.

This brief interview adequately acquaints listeners with the thinking of Wendell Berry. A good starting point for his eclectic practical philosophy.
Derived from a radio interview, the piece starts disconcertingly with a long piece of American country music. After this overlong prelude we get down to business. Wendell Berry issue not a slick word-spinner, but is quite the antithesis of facile gilded-tongued content-free politicians. His comments come haltingly at times, and he really only hits pace towards the end of the recording when talking about the haemorrhage of people from America's small farms since the 1940s and why this is a disaster. His answers are measured, thoughtful and honest. This man has something to say which is very much worth listening to.
