    The Hills Are Alive and Steady: Forced Growth in Beverly Hills

    Beverly Hills isn’t the first place most people would think of harboring a steady-state government. Yet, led for three terms by past Mayor John Mirisch (who still serves on the city council), the enclave west of Hollywood has pushed back against the pro-growth strictures emanating out of the statehouse in Sacramento. This experience has turned Mr. Mirisch into a die-hard steady stater, a badge he wears proudly.

    Beat it Bitcoin, Here Comes Beetcoin! (with Woody Tasch)

    Beat it Bitcoin, Here Comes Beetcoin! (with Woody Tasch)

    For Woody Tasch, founder of Slow Money Institute, it’s all about balance. Every moonshot needs an Earthshot; diversity and efficiency; simplicity and complexity. That’s where the “deceptively simple” concept of Beetcoin comes in. Providing crowdfunded, 0% loans to organic and local food projects, Beetcoin is a challenge not just to the food system but the growth economy at large. Hear Woody and Brian dig into the details on this week’s Steady Stater.

    The future, as they say, is unwritten. But that didn’t stop authors Christina Conklin and Marina Psaros from speculating, in their acclaimed book The Atlas of Disappearing Places: Our Coasts and Oceans in the Climate Crisis. We spoke with Christina about some of the 20 locations covered, combining artistry with science, and seaweed. Can our cultures and economies leap forward in acts of transilience?

Top notch interviewees

If you want to know how we need to change our economic system so it reflects impacts on the environment, thus is the podcast for you. Top notch interviews with stalwarts in this small, but ever more important field include the godfather of ISEW Herman Daly (alternative to GDP) and other essential thinkers on how to decrease our impacts on the planet to reach sustainability for all (humanity, flora, and fauna).

And all done in a folksy, positive way thanks to the interviewer. Important information but presented in a way not to increase your blood pressure.
