He wears overalls and he is really tall and ... he is not me!

Weird, huh!

I met him at a site in sandy eggo. I meet a person taller than me about once every two years. So not only is he an inch taller than me, but his name is also Paul and he also wears overalls and he is also bonkers about permaculture. So, naturally, a very cool guy.

So he has a radio show and says he wants me to be a regular guest.

The first show starts in a coupla hours and my impression is that people can call in and pester us with freaky questions. Today's show starts at noon pacific time (1:00 pm mountain time).

Once the show is all recorded and stuff, then people can listen to the show, but the only interaction you have is to yell at it, but we don't hear that.

Here is the link to the show for today.

Right on Paul,

I am so thankful about your point about making $ with Permaculture. I am so tired of the righteous poverty mentality that I have been bumping into in the permaculture world. We can use intelligent design to make money with out shame! Also, I found it awesome that you were talking about the organic questions when that was our breakfast conversation for our PDC this morning. Nice. Aho and good words. Keep rocking the empire. lol.
Much respect,
Alana

I listened live and thought it was really good stuff. I hope you two (Paul's) can make a regular thing out of it.

I like it when people interview Paul Wheaton better than when he sits down with a recorder and a list of stuff to talk about with a room full of people. The flow of the conversation goes more smoothly -in my opinion- when one person is firing off questions to Mr. Wheaton. I think Paul Wheaton provides more entertaining dialogue when he's not prepared notes ahead of time as well. And I like the colorful language too.

I was aware that there was a call-in number and I was hoping that a cue-to-call would have been given to encourage more questions but, I got the impression that no calls were being taken (not that I thought I had a "good enough" question.) Then again, with only an hour to talk, it's tough to cram it all in. I guess you'll just have to make it a weekly thing.

Tall Paul has a good thing going with his podcast and I hope he continues to interview folks like P-Wheat in the future.

I thought the reference to the "financial shamers" working for Monsanto was a bit of a stretch. I've met some of those holier than thou, righteous poverty types. I think Monsanto would choose people who had at least a grade school grasp of English. You'd think that with the company's deep pockets, they could hire some coaches and a proof reader, so that even the most ridiculous ideas could at least appear on the surface to have merit. They'd probably show them how to use their spell checker and explain the reasons for capitalization and paragraphs. A good coach might explain the subtle differences between the words then and than or get them to stop with the cell phone short hand. They might even encourage them to pick a name that wasn't an obvious fabrication.

No, I think those who wield shame as a weapon, are mostly independent and working typing for their own reasons.

Am I the only one who would like to see the two Pauls wrestle? Tall Paul has an inch on our guy, but he sounds so nice. I haven't seen him. He may be "bean pole tall" whereas our Paul is "grisly bear tall" and probably meaner. If it goes to the floor, my money is on Mr. Wheaton.

Thanks Dale for saying I'm "so nice" (I consider myself a gentle giant). As far as the wrestling match... maybe we can get a Kickstarter going for that???!!! lol I'm no "bean pole" but Mr. Wheaton is more of a grisly bear than me!

Interested Paul in a wrestling match? We could start the WPW (World Permies Wrestling) and go on the road. We would wear our overalls...

I'm not a fight coach, but I've seen one on television.

The more lanky fighter is generally safer on the outside. Forget about the dangerous business of head hunting. Pick away at the lower leg with sharp kicks. People in the back row should be able to hear it. Get in 50 good licks and you are likely to immobilize the larger man. You want him to stand there just like George Foreman did at the end of the "Rumble in the jungle". Then keep your distance and pick away. I'm in PW's corner, but will turn coat in an instant, if I smell money. Good luck to both of you.

That Shapiro guy from Monsanto's team is a pencil neck. Get him to bring his top salesperson to an old warehouse and let's settle some of our differences on the canvas. We'll need to make sure he doesn't bring a genetically modified partner. I vote that we relax the choking and eye gouging rules. Overalls are like a karate gi with straps perfectly adaptable to neck wringing. The pockets could hide innumerable nasty objects. I'd gladly represent our side as an alternate. I can swing a wrecking bar so fast that it whistles and the "CRACK" can be heard a block away.

Ticket sales would beat all Kickstarter records.
Merchandising could include a video, stills, T shirts, and stuffy toys. Sales will skyrocket if there is a crushing death (Shapiro) wardrobe malfunction, flatulence, or an entertaining combination !!!
