I actually didn't like it all that much. Geoff's great on his videos but he can definitely trail off on topics in interviews. Jack had some nice questions though, but half the time I would forget what the question was by the time Geoff was done answering. I was doing work while it was on, so maybe I just didn't give it enough attention while listening.

jesse you might want to give it another go, I listened to it and it's not an interview you can passively glean. Geoff didn't trail off he went into detail and that's probably how you became lost, he dropped some great animal management techniques, latin names, temperate alternative strategies for tropical designs and reiterated the current directives and goals of the permaculture movement from the front lines. I was glad to have an interviewer who was highly familiar with geoffs work and didnt waist any minutes having to run through the permaculture speel that usualy takes up a quarter of all interviews. The willow coppice biomass mulch circle is the banana circle of the temperate, and I was glad to hear verification of my duck pond poo overflow system. Give it another go when you have time to delve in, all that can really happen is Geoff is talking about things that arn't pertinent to you right now, but right now isnt forever and it's nice to know where to go for the day you need it. Cows and goat's are the fastest forest generator's when managed and timed in the right way, who would of seen that coming.
