This week I speak with Darcy Menard, host of the podcast Stumbling Homestead. We center our discussion around Darcy's transition from a career minded professional to a sustainable farmer (in training). In our conversation we hit many of the high-points that many people wrestling with the transition often go through; talking with the spouse, relating with friends and peers, dealing with children, etc..
We also discuss home schooling, Excalibur dehydrators, and Berkey Water Purification Systems.
Chris Martenson returns to Two Beers With Steve to talk about his new book, The Crash Course. The new book provides a much needed update to his video series by the same name but also delves deeper into the subject matter and the book includes many more topics not discussed in the video.
Since Chris' website is the first website that I have ever have posted a comment on, I must admit that I am preferential to his audience and to his content. Be that as it may, I think in this interview I was able to steer Chris away from many of the talking points to which I know that he has grown accustomed to talking about. This diversion into topics such as his thoughts on the effect of the growth based paradigm have on our culture and his feelings towards complexity prove to be some of the best moments in the interview.
Listen to the podcast, buy the book, pass it on to a friend who is just starting to question r'eality'.
