Don’t miss the video of her appearance with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, which ends in typical form with quite the zinger!!!

Wendell Berry

Today is the 80th birthday of Kentucky farmer/writer Wendell Berry!

I realize that there is some irony in doing this (Berry was, after all, the man who stood firm and penned “Why I am not going to buy a computer“), but to commemorate the occasion we offer the Top 10 online recordings of Berry to date. These recordings, some brief and some long, serve as a wonderful guide to the breadth and depth of Wendell Berry’s work: fiction, poetry, technology, community, land, etc., all the great genres and themes in which he has written.
