Some Truly Great Stuff Here
UPDATE - for a while now most of the episodes have been all about their mission and not about home scale permaculture or, most importantly, building soil and growing plants. So I’ve been skipping more than I’ve been listening.
I listen to about 4 four hours of podcasts a day on news,science,software,finance (but all on double speed, so, it is actually only two hours) and I've been gorging on gardening,aquaponics,permaculture podcasts for the past couple months. This podcast is definitely worth a spot in your lineup if you like this kind of thing. It is definitely the best permaculture podcast ever and maybe the best gardening podcast too.
I've probably listened to almost one of these a day since I started this podcast a month ago. My favorites so far are the joint book discussions of Sepp Holzer's book and of Gaia's Garden. I wish more of the back episodes were available in iTunes, I would love to hear the whole series of those.
Not every episode is a gem, I didn't need three hours of content on electric tractors, and, if you are trying to convince me to give up soap, I need more than two antidotal data points.
Nate Hale’s Review
I love getting to be a fly on the wall as I listen to conversations about life at Wheaton Labs and how everything is evolving. I hope I can visit one day! I do wish there was a little more teaching concepts of design than updates, but that’s just a selfish want. You still can infer information between the cracks of the stories and still learn a lot for listening in. But I guess that’s what Permies.com and the forums are for!
Good conversational info if you are into Paul and Permaculture
Paul has a lot of great ideas. He can be polarizing but he always make you think. He has many new ideas.
