Podcasts - Regenerative Ag & More

Usually mid winter is a time for reading, reflection and enjoying the time to recharge, almost like hibernation.

I've done a couple posts on books but as I was driving recently listening to some of my favorite podcasts I thought I would share what I listen to.

Interested in books?  Here are those stories-

I do more podcast listening during the summer when physical labor allows, than in the winter when designing demands more of my mental attention.  But I do try to stay caught up by listening at a faster speed, skipping parts or even certain episodes.

Here are the podcasts I'm subscribed to-

Rewild Yourself
Daniel Vitalis, former vegan turned hunter, gatherer and forager, is exploring ways to become more sustainable with regionally sourced foods.  Subscribe here  http://rewildyourself.libsyn.com

I listened to this episode last week and enjoyed his look at Regenerative Agriculture, specifically pasture raised beef, and then how the guest's ranch was misrepresented in the documentary Cowspiracy.

Abundant Future with Matt Powers
Author and teacher Matt Powers, of The Permaculture Student, shares about Regenerative practices, community building & entrepreneurial topics, interviews and more.

The Urban Farm Podcast
This prolific podcaster, Greg Petersen, puts out several episodes per week on various topics related to farming, gardening and homesteading. They have hosted several people from central Iowa on the show.

TopSoil Podcast
Iowa based, more conventional annual row crop focused, but with a goal is to bring awareness to #SoilHealth and the #RegenerativeAg movement.

In this episode they discuss the rise of biologicals Season 2, Episode 7

Sustainable World Radio
This was one I used to listen to often, but just resubscribed.  I had missed it after reinstalling my podcast app awhile back.  Jill Cloutier interviews a variety of guests on topics from organic food, herbalism and essential oils, permaculture and more.

A couple others I listen to - just for fun, productivity and family.
     Mike Rowe's "The Way I Heard It"
          The Art of Manliness Podcast
               Focus on the Family - Daily Broadcast

Of course the first podcast I ever listened to was The Survival Podcast (TSP).

TSP is a daily podcast with an enormous amount of content!  It delves into topics that can help us prepare not necessarily for the Zombie Apocalypse but the many, much more common, little disasters of life - job loss, severe storms, infrastructure hiccups - and how to setup your lifestyle to become less fragile.  Our grandparents wouldn't call it Survivalism, just Common Sense.  Business building, Permaculture, Cooking, Off Grid Living are favorite topics of the show and can help lead to a more resilient existence.  There are also weekly Call-In Shows, Ask the Experts and Interviews.

Jack Spirko didn't introduce me to Permaculture, but he really helped me realize how it connected all of my life experiences and passions.  Along with Diego Footer of Permaculture Voices (sadly no longer producing episodes), Jack encouraged my growth as a Permaculture Designer.

You can listen to Episode 2158 where Jack and I talk about Permaculture in the Suburbs.

Have a great week, stay warm, drive safe and
     Happy Listening!
