I just downloaded the Ran Prieur podcast http://www.richsoil.com/permaculture/512-podcast-088-ran-prieur/ ... haven't even played it yet, but I already know it's my favorite.  Here's why:  I'll share what I wrote on my own blog:

A powerful memory: Sitting to Paul Wheaton's right at the lunch table, while he interviewed the writer whose work has influenced me more profoundly than any other in the first decade of the 21st century, not only because of what Ran himself has written over the years, but because of other things I read after following links on his website. Blogs, books, links from those blogs branching out to other brilliant thinkers. They brought my mind out of the sinking pit of depression and disillusionment, which had reached its lowest point in early 2004 when I was unemployed, surfing the web from my parent's apartment, and found a startlingly refreshing piece of satire by Ran Prier on a site called Unknown News entitled "Democrats Nominate Hitler". http://ranprieur.com/essays/demhit.html

I was a fan from then on....

How far things have come. Wow. What a life!
