Yukon Damov

Podcast Episode 9 – Yukon Damov, No Clear Path

On today’s episode I sit down with Yukon Damov, an academic, an ex-scholar, and a community minded activist. We are at his place in the Bain Co-op in Toronto, Ontario. We sit down to discuss his thesis called “No Clear Path” which explores the idea of a universal basic income. We examine various case studies from around the world, we talk about the UBI as a tool for social and political change, and more specifically, we look at how it could benefit farmers or others who are facing growing economic uncertainty. We are enjoying a hot cup of tea from the Riverdale Perk, and we are ready to talk!

Our goal with Farm Talk Radio is to tell a story across ​Canada, weaving a mosaic of landscapes that focus on the people, places, and things that inspire change — To give airtime to the hardworking men and women who are feeding the bodies, hearts, and minds of our great country. Farming can at times be a lonely and isolating profession. It is one filled with numerous hardships. The long hours, physically demanding work, and constant struggle to work in harmony with Mother Nature take their toll. Furthermore, the ever-changing extremes of climate change will only add to these pressures. Not to mention, the financial risk of being an entrepreneur and running a business to feed and support yourself and your family. Yet this is a field of work that continues to attract some of the most incredible and inspiring change makers that I have been fortunate enough to meet. Spend a weekend at your local farmers market and you’ll know what I am talking about. Because of this, it will be an honour to sit down and listen to them and help them tell their story. Farm Talk Radio explores the challenges these agents of change are going through and the gifts that this journey has brought them. And we’d like to share all of this with you.
