The Regenerative Journey podcast is a must for anyone who is curious about regenerative agriculture and the wide ranging and significant benefits of its adoption and practice, not just for farming communities but also for anyone who eats food and cares for the planet!
Gabrielle Chan | Why we should give a f*ck about farming
Author & journalist Gabrielle Chan is Charlie's guest for this episode. Gabrielle's media & journalism background combined with her 'opposition defiance disorder' has seen her challenge political & rural issues with curiosity and persistence, resulting in a unique perspective on how the two intersect. Charlie explores with Gabrielle this intersection including how farmers can influence the political landscape by the decisions they make regarding their natural landscape..
Andy Carbone | From cattle stations to TV stations - Andy's journey is one of reflection and regeneration
In this episode Charlie chats with Andy Carbone about his regenerative journey so far. Andy Carbone started his life on a Central Queensland cattle station before trying his hand at acting, screen writing and film directing. A career and life change that stood him in good stead for a number of challenges that he would face on his own journey, which eventually lead him to the world of regenerative farming.
Nick Mace | A young family's journey from conventional farming to regenerative living
In this episode Charlie chats to Nick Mace. Nick and his young family are currently transitioning their mixed enterprise farm in Western NSW to more regenerative practices, primarily initiated by a health scare some years ago which has changed the way they engage with Nature, graze their livestock, steward their landscape and feed their children. A wonderful interview for anyone currently or wanting to start their own regenerative journey.
Marcus Pearce | From a smoking, binge-drinking sports journalist to identifying a blueprint for living an exceptional life.
In this episode Charlie chats to his good friend Marcus Pearce. Marcus was not necessarily destined for a life of health and wellness. However, meeting his wife Sarah, a stint at veganism, a fascination with longevity & quality of life, and collating his research into his new book 'Your Exceptional Life' has put him squarely in that space. Marcus is an expert and advocate of such phrases as 'make the rest of your life the best of your life' and 'do what you love and love what you do'.
Amelia Nolan | Bringing together new technologies with regenerative grape growing & natural wine making
Amelia Nolan represents a new breed of wine maker, one with no preconceived notion of 'the right way to make wine', willing to explore the artisanal craft of natural wine making, initiating regenerative farming practices in the vineyard and combining it all with cutting edge technologies to create wine truly expressive of the site specific terroir of the vineyard in the Barossa Valley.
Michael Taylor | The biodiversity personified, agroforestry & regenerative wool producer all in one pioneering family business
Michael Taylor is from a multigenerational farming family in the New England region of NSW and is continuing his parents legacy of innovation, agroforestry and ethically produced fine merino wool production. Diversity of enterprises and biodiversity of ecology and landscape is a focus of Michaels, as demonstrated by the resilience of his farm 'Taylors Run' and the businesses he operates.

Urban Regenerative Journey.
Under Lockdown London UK, I live a very urban life, but one closed to me in this city for over a year. I discovered regenerative agriculture in the past few weeks, and it has given me some optimism. I love this podcast, it is so fascinating as it marks people’s journeys of realisation of how we got it wrong and how to get it right. I am changing the way I buy our food. Keep up the good work - love you!

Listening to Charlie and his inspiring guests has become my daily dose of grounding and hope and I am beyond excited to see where the regenerative approach can lead our food systems and consumer behaviours.
