Have you felt it? Something is rippling through humanity at this moment. It's a stirring... a longing... a remembering. A sense that we are more capable than we’ve been led to believe. We want to feel alive, not sedated.. but we've lost our way. We've traded a life intertwined with nature for asphalt and artificial lights. We've swapped natural movement for a sedentary existence. We've given up food from the earth in favor of food from the factory. We've sacrificed our traditional skillsets for apps and gadgets. But while our overdose on modernity may have made us sick, there is an antidote. Join best-selling author and mentor, Jill Winger, each week as she digs into a different facet of the old-fashioned on purpose lifestyle.

Fellow fun hater…

I love this episode! I felt like I was listening to myself talk but with some differences in the activities since I don’t actually have a homestead. Glad to see there are more of me out there, thanks so much for your podcast!

Thank you for “The Inconvenient Truth”!

Thank you for being willing to push back on the group think and echo chambers that so many find themselves drawn into! So refreshing. I found myself nodding and agreeing out loud as I drove and listened. I’m a freedom loving Christian conservative who is so over all the hatred, labeling, and unwillingness to engage with others who might look or think differently, across the political spectrum. Our culture and heritage is rooted in the ability to disagree in a civil and thoughtful way, and I fear for our future if more people aren’t willing to break away from hero worship and media personalities and appreciate the nuance and perspectives of others, on both left and right! While I may disagree profoundly with a person’s politics or lifestyle, I can engage with them first of all as a fellow human being, find areas of common ground to connect with, and if the situation calls for it, debate based on facts and reason, rather than descending into emotional and tone-deaf attacks. It’s a hard thing, but we can do it! Our culture and future depend on it.

The seed starting info you covered with Shawn was one of the best gardening podcasts I’ve ever listened to. I loved every minute and learned a ton. WOW!
