Up and personal with the bad boy of permaculture
I like to keep up with Paul's projects in Missoula and hear his take on various permaculture and organic gardening techniques. Apart from just knowledge content he and his accomplices share there interpersonal experience of what worked and what didn't on Paul's ranch. Paul regularly has entrepreneurs from the permaculture world in for interviews. It is always exciting because every now and then they are at odd to each other one this or that subject and this allows more insight.
One thing I'd like to constructively criticize: I believe Paul once said in regards to his DVD projects that a crystal clear sound is more important than high definition video. (If it wasn't him, it was George Lucas, anyway). The audio on the podcasts is often the quality of an 1950s phone conversation. (not that I lived in that area, but that's what I imagine it to have been like, anyway). Increase audio quality and you are golden (in my book). Cheers
