So as some of you know I have been trying to arrange ways for people subscribed to the dailyish email (our newsletter type deal) to get free things! Not just things that are always free, but I have been trying to find people/websites to offer up something they usually sell to us to give to our subscribers for just a week or so for free. We did this with Ernie and Erica Wisner and gave away $15 dollar rocket mass heater plans a few weeks ago and have a few other things lined up with them, Diego Footer, Marjory Wildcraft, and a few others.

But I am searching to line more up. So I need your help. I have only been helping paul for about 8 months so I don't really know about the rich history of who Paul has had relationships with. And frankly, he doesn't really have time to tell me about it. So I am looking to you all who have been around permies much longer than me in hopes that you could give some suggestions of people/websites that Paul has promoted/worked with in the past or just people/websites that you think might be interested in doing this sort of thing with us.

I know this might be a shot in the dark but even if you could remember some of the kickstarters he has promoted in the dailyish, that would be helpful too. Or businesses or websites that you've heard him mention over the years.

Thanks in advance!

The first ones that come to my mind are Jack Spirko and the Steven Harris because I regularly see their banners on the top of page.

I remember Sergei Boutenko because he had such a good rap video about foraging. I'm not completely sure if this counts, but Paul was featured on the Self-Reliance Summit which had Nathan Crane.

Then, there was Ben Peterson who made the Wood Gasifier's Bible.

Thanks you two! The only ones I didn't think of that you guys mentioned were Sergei and Mark Shepard. But I didn't really think Paul had ever done anything with Mark Shepard.

edit: just another thing, these don't have to be big names, just anyone you can remember paul has helped out or had anything to do with.
