Elizabeth Oldfield speaks to American journalist Grace Olmstead. 05/05/2021
Grace is an American journalist. She has written for the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, the American Conservative among many others, and usually with a family or a farming focus. She has recently written a book called ‘Uprooted’ which explores the effects of the rural brain drain on farming communities, the huge ecological problems that global agri–business brings and questions in a very personal way whether our association of success with cosmopolitan mobility is problematic for our communities.
In this episode she speaks about her personal wrestle with leaving her rural community, having a consistent pro–life ethic, and why she no longer feels at home in conservatism.
