    Serially Curious | So... what can I do?

    Felicity Jefferson speaks to Mark about the psychological concepts and tools that can be useful to the climate community, and the course she is running through What Can I Do Australia. 

    As promised, here's some photos of the beautiful Hamilton Gardens.

    Mark and Eav talk about the concept of deep ecology, the small steps we took/are taking at the start of our climate engagement. We hope this is helpful, and if so, we think you'd love the course.

    Serially Curious | What food is good for your pooch - and planet?

    Mark speaks to GG, who along with Anna, are fur parents of Lyka. Anna and GG started feeding GG home-prepared meals, and it turned around Lyka's health. They started a pet food - no, a pet wellness - company also called Lyka. And the rest is history!




    Lyka: Australia’s only carbon negative dog food.

    There is no time to waste for climate action. The change happens with us and we are committed to helping the planet, one bowl at a time.

    That’s right. No hidden agenda, no greenwashing – just the facts. Lyka is as committed to the planet as we are to your pup. Because your pup deserves great food, but it shouldn’t be at the expense of our environment.

    So you've spotted ecofascism in the climate community, now what? w/ Angelica Kross

    So you've spotted ecofascism in the climate community, now what? w/ Angelica Kross

    Wellness and sustainability and environmentalism, oh my. These communities have long histories of overlap with fascism, serving as breeding grounds for fascist demagogues, and fascist groups invariably have roots in traditionalism, populism, and purity - uncomfortable. 

    We dive into these roots, the modern day manifestations, and what we can do to be aware of, and push back against, fascistic tendencies in the climate community. 



    If you liked what Angelica had to say here about fascism, then you’ll love her show Half Measures and Hope - she dives into the political history of Australia and how it’s engaged with climate, race, representative democracy, with some great stuff coming up. Subscribe now!

    Serially Curious | Brenna Quinlan — Permaculture Illustrator

    Brenna Quinlan is an illustrator and educator who strives to make the world a better place through her art and her actions. She lives at Australia's most well-known permaculture demonstration site, Melliodora, where she grows food, milks goats, builds soil and engages with the community - or, she did.

    Mark and Eav caught up with Brenna on her last day at Melliodora to talk about her art and illustration, her process, and Our Street, the new book for kids about permaculture that brings Retrosuburbia to a new generation.

    Thanks to Formidable Vegetable for their permission to use some excerpts of their tracks.
