Recently, Supreme Master Television, the station devoted to vegan spiritual leader Supreme Master Ching Hai, asked me some questions in an interview for their online TV station. They generously gave me the footage and permission to use it however I wanted. I have edited them and added them to my YouTube Channel (@keithakerscolorado). At some point they may put some excerpts from the video on their web site, and I will post a link here if that happens, but you can view six substantial excerpts of this interview on my YouTube channel right now.
The questions concerned my two most recent books, Disciples and Embracing Limits. So some questions were about the history of early Christianity and some were about the environmental crisis. Here is a list of the videos: Continue reading “Videos from SMTV interview”
The link to the interview recording has been posted; it is here.
CORRECTION: El Paso, Texas, is also in Mountain time, just like Colorado, so it will be at 7:30 pm MST, not 6:30 pm as previously stated.
I will be on an Animal Concerns of Texas (ACT) radio program this Sunday (Dec. 24, Christmas eve) at 7:30 pm MST. It will be on KTEP, a public radio station in El Paso, Texas, and found online here as well as at 88.5 on your FM dial (if you’re within about 100 miles of El Paso). Topics will include Jesus and animals, vegetarianism and veganism more generally, and my latest book Embracing Limits.
Currently hosted by Dr. Elizabeth Walsh and Tom Linney, ACT radio has been on the air for 20 years. On their website you can find interviews with dozens of people such as Brenda Davis, Judy Carman, Seth Tibbott, Jamie Berger, Thomas Jackson, and Neal Barnard.
Rev. Chris Sartain recently interviewed me on the Western Yoga podcast. We discussed a variety of topics concerning two of my books, Disciples and Embracing Limits, such as the history of vegetarianism, the conflict in the early Christian church, simple living, limits to growth, and the environmental crisis.
Chris Sartain lives in Chile, is an ordained teacher in the Kriya Yoga tradition, and is the director of Vinyasa Yoga Chile. His podcast is about Yoga as it is practiced and taught in the West, and discusses Yoga philosophy and practices from a Westerner’s point of view. This is Episode 42 of the Western Yoga podcast.
The Vegetarian Resource Group (VRG) published a review of Embracing Limits in their latest issue of Vegan Journal (vol. 42, issue 4), on p. 33. The review was written by Anna Markulis. You can also find it on their blog online here. I am republishing it below.

Keith Akers’ new book, Embracing Limits, is an enjoyable and intriguing read that offers a unique perspective on the environmental crisis that our generation is faced with and will continue to be affected by in the future. Akers argues the cause of environmental destruction, at its core, is the human desire for limitless growth and expansion. He explains that the most effective solution we can do as humans is to “embrace limits” and relinquish our near unquenchable desire for expansion and growth.

I have some good news and some bad news about the reception of my book Embracing Limits. The good news is that the folks at Animals 24-7, a nonprofit independent online investigative newspaper, have taken notice of Embracing Limits!
The bad news is that it comes in the form of a review of my book in Animals 24-7 by Merritt Clifton which is, shall we say, less than the ringing endorsement of degrowth veganism that I hoped it would be.
At the Vegan Summerfest in Johnstown, I gave a talk on “Biodiversity Collapse and You” on July 6, one of three environmental talks I gave, and the only one that was recorded. I edited it down to about 20 minutes and have posted it on YouTube. Here’s the link.
Thanks to Aaron Wissner for doing the videography!
