    Dam Dismantling

    Dam Dismantling

    Dam Dismantling
    In 1921 the San Clemente Dam was built. 20 years later it was useless. 70 years later it was dangerous. Then it was dismantled.
    We built a WHOLE NEW lifestyle this past year...but it's not gonna hold. Gotta start thinking about dismantling it.

    CAAM Water video about the Dam Dismantling here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNANijh-7sU

    The book I mentioned is "How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy" by Jenny Odell

    End music is "Expressing Thanks (Outdoor Mix)" by CUATRO CUATRO CERO, available here: https://open.spotify.com/track/1Ln4F1nHLvVUo1Vj66OabE?si=wSb1gw_6TrCVgjGX2iWjXw

👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽 Always short and sweet!

This podcast consistently hits a perfect timing/density ratio, and usually leaves me wanting just a little bit more… in the good way! Like a great song!

A great podcast, like a show about nothing.

Thanks to Rod and the irrelevant team for the great articles and topics in their podcasts. OR-4 did nothing wrong!
