Ha! Feel free to use my name however you like. Your podcasts have changed my life. I moved from an apartment to 5 acres with multiple animal and plant systems managed through permaculture principles.
I love your videos and podcasts! And I’ve converted three people to cast iron via your article.
I’ve supported all your kickstarters for the past 3 years, bought podcast gobs (I’ve listened to them all twice by the way), and I’m happy to support you on Patreon too.
Please keep up what you are doing. Because of you, I am sharing Permaculture through action with my family, friends, and neighbors.
P.S. Don’t worry about repeating your podcast content. There is so much to take in it is great to get reminders and inspiration from what you are doing/thinking about today.
I know you are very busy with the empire so don’t feel obliged to respond to this note or (take any of my advice). 🙂
All the best,
Chris Sugg (Not afraid of Spideman)

I sent each person 5 gift codes for the World Domination Gardening 3-DVD set. They can give all five to friends, or maybe keep one for themselves.
I am hoping to get some feedback. Did anybody exercise the gift? Did it all work okay? Did any of you give them out?
I was thinking of doing another round of this, but in a slightly different way. Devaka even made a slight change to the software for me.

Jason Smith is wading through the videos and editing them. I am giving him a healthy slice of the patreon income in exchange for his work. But he can just help a little.
I would really like to get somebody that lives here full time:

Can you elaborate? If I were to start a podcast, what expenses would I have?
Also, in the recent podcasts, you've mentioned several projects that run in the red. From memory, I think you mentioned the podcasts, gapper program, boots program, RMH innovators event and/or PDC/ATC/Schmoozaroo...
Not to pry, but what projects do you have in the black that keep all these other projects afloat?

My videos are mostly about homesteading and permaculture stuff. I try to make shorter videos that introduce a topic or point-of-view that is not yet on youtube.
I have oodles of raw video that I don't have time to edit. Patreon sponsors let me pay some folks to help out. The more folks feed my Patreon, the more videos I am able to crank out!

trying to sign up for podcasts and it said I was signed up already. Looked like maybe that was from before when it wasn’t split out.
Anyway to tell if people are still signed up from before and then added video? I do want to support both
