I have about 2 hours of commuting time every day, so I have a couple daily podcast I listen to plus a few weeklies--most are too political to list here, though.
Jack has a similar bent as Paul. There is something permie at least once a week.
"You must be the change you want to see in the world." "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." --Mahatma Gandhi
"Preach the Gospel always, and if necessary, use words." --Francis of Assisi.
"Family farms work when the whole family works the farm." -- Adam Klaus
The C-Realm podcasts is one of my absolute favorites. The show covers many different subjects (including permaculture) and has evolved its focus throughout its run. The interviewer KMO is excellent, the dialogues and guests are almost always fascinating and thought provoking. I'm sure there's something in the archive for just about anyone.
Savage Love Cast - relationships/sex
Latest in Paleo -paleo/nutrition in the news + interviews
the Stuff You Should Know group (stuff you missed in history class, stuff mom never told you, etc.)
Public Radio International (PRI) The World with Rhitu Chatterjee
Stone Pages - archeology with a Scottish accent - lovely
GAPS Journey on Blog Talk Radio - not the best interviewing, but good interviewees, I'm very excited when I see another posted
various comedians - Duncan Trussell (DT Family Hour), Pete Holmes (You Made It Weird w/), Paul Gilmartin (Mental Illness Happy Hour)
StarTalkRadio - with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson
Barefoot Beekeeper - top bar enthusiast
Chelsea Green Radio - usually brief statements from featured authors
This American Life
Many NPR programs - Snap Judgement is especially good and not news related (1hr range), just excellent story telling as with StoryCorps (usually under 5min)
I frequently cry while listening to Snap Judgment and StoryCorps
Agroinnovations doesn't seem to be putting out any new content, but the old stuff is good.
FarmDreams - I find it lacking in permaculture, but I like their voices and I do get something from it
I have a number of podcasts I listen to on my commute, here's my top 3
Check out The Permaculture Podcast http://www.thepermaculturepodcast.com/ Scott Mann is putting a lot of effort into his show and getting top names, some really interesting talks. I find myself waiting for the next update.
Biodynamics Now - www.bdnow.com Excellent content, broadened my horizons
Radio Ecoshock is one of my favourites though they have not had anything new since July, the old podcasts have great environmental oriented topics and guests .
http://www.ecoshock.org/ I am active on Jack Spirko's Survival podcast forum too . I really appreciated some of the others mentioned on here , I listen as I do morning chores in the barn : )
Coast to Coast AM - which is my favorite podcast and is unfortunately a pay-for-play. But good news, it only costs 15 cents an episode when you sign up for a yearly subscription. For 15 cents, I get to go to bed at a normal time and skip all the commercials from the radio broadcast the night before. I can say this program has truly challenged my beliefs, values, and spirituality; all while broadening my horizons, and giving me the push to change and better my life for the right reasons.
Powerful Joe Rogan Experience - is a close second. Before you judge, give it a listen. I'm not an 'mma guy' or even a fan remotely of watching people pummel each other. In fact I let this prejudice hold me back from listening to a great source of info. Some guests are inspiring, some are knowledgeable, some are crude and disgusting, but usually I learn a life lesson from each episode. One episode will be some comedian making fart jokes, the next will be an astrophysicist, the next will be a doctor on the cutting edge of brain science, the next will be an artist or author, etc .......
I would classify these as 'non permaculture' but even then some guests will touch on subjects of direct interest to permaculture.
Location: Moved from south central WI to Portland, OR
My favorites are:
Dave Ramsey Show (financial advice)
eBay Scavengers (eBay discussions)
Harvest Eating (cooking with Chef Keith Snow, also a Montana guy)
Mountain Folk (folk and bluegrass music)
Quit! (career advice)
The Voluntary Life (freedom/liberty/simplicity)
Hey, I'm loading my phone with Podcasts for the long drive up the Alaska Highway (going in April) and looking for some new interesting podcasts. Not necessary that they be about permaculture, but food, gardening, orchards, and trees always hold my interest.
Ones I like that nobody has mentioned yet include two from NPR:
My tastes run all over the place but i heartily recommend the following:
Radiolab Presents More Perfect (Specially their series on the amendments (chef's kiss)
This is Love (stories about love)
Buried Truths (real crime)
2 Dope Queens (pop entertainment)
The Mash Up Americans
White Lies (real crime)
Revisionist History (Malcolm Gladwell)
Factually! with Adam Conover
Ted Radio Hour
This American Life
Back to School with Maz Jobrani
I'm just getting my pod-cast off the ground Journey into Permaculture podcast . I hope you like the trailers, and consider subscribing for the first episodes! I need feedback, so let me know what you think. All of the introduction music is different in every trailer for example, which one is your favorite? Best of luck to your new podcast subscriptions.
I do love listening to the plants, birds & insects when I'm gardening & farming; I also enjoy chatting with the folks I'm working with. But many times podcasts are also great to listen to while gardening or farming alone, especially when loud machinery is running - a common occurrence on farms & even around homesteads. So here's my list of podcasts:
Another vote for Abundant Edge Podcast, and Cannabis Cultivation Podcast. Okay, okay, before you call me out on the second one — they cover much more than just cannabis cultivation; there are episodes on natural farming, permaculture, organic mulch, soil building, etc.
Some of my favourite podcasts these days are audio drama / fiction. Supernatural and weird and mysterious: Tanis, Rabbits, Black Tapes, The Bug Loop, Limetown, Deca Tapes.
Radio Rental for weird stories about people’s fears (featuring Dwight from The Office), Thunder Bay for investigative reports on the corruption in Thunder Bay, Ontario (well written and well-produced), Someone Knows Something for well-produced and heartfelt and mysterious true crime cases.
Here are my suggestions of podcasts--not in any particular order. I tried to make sure they were not already listed in all of the previous posts, though many of the others I enjoy are also in this cummulative list.
Earth Repair Radio
Inspiring regenerative projects and people from around the world from permaculture teacher and video producer Andrew Millison.
Designers of Paradise
Hosted by soil activist Erik van Lennep and a production of RASA (Regenerative Agriculture Sector Accelerator)
Logos Media (formerly Gnostic Media)
Long running podcast (video and audio) hosted by Jan Irvin looking into some challenging topics which have helped me shatter many illusions which were supposedly non-negotiables. I was introduced to the powerful tool of the trivium method (which includes the logical fallacies) through Jan's work.
