I heard it the other day. It wasn't anything new or mind blowing, but a really good way for Joel Salatin to reach a lot of people he normally wouldn't. When I looked Joe Rogan Experience was listed as the 11th most popular podcast so hopefully it reaches a lot of people that normally have no exposure to this kind of thinking.

i was just about to post this.
i really enjoyed the podcast, especially where/when Joe Salatin explains how/animals get diseases from confined feeding operations. (fecal cloud)
or when he talks about how much lawn and recreational land goes unused for food growing... (71 MILLION acres)
or how he was courted to feed dead cows to live cows
or how his farm cant get insurance because he is considered "high risk" for not following the industries best management practices..
or how his farm is considered a typhoid mary because they dont vaccinate his animals.
the best part, for me, was when he says the industry[science] sees life as inherently mechanical, whereas he sees it as inherently biological.
i also LOVE the term integrity food, and plan to use that term.
i hope more people watch/listen to this. it would also be great to see other permie types on the JRE.
