So, I've been listening to the permies podcasts lately, starting at the beginning. I've listened to 1-20 now, and about 10 or 15 more that weren't in any particular order.

In some of them, especially early ones, Paul expresses some... "discontentment"... with people who claimed they were going to help post links online and generally spread the good word, but then flaked out and left it all on him.
There are a few times where he asks listeners to post certain things on their page/blog/group/whatever as a thank you for the podcast. There's one about a link to permies with certain wording, one about chickens, etc.

Is there a comprehensive list of all these?
I was already doing this with hugelkultur, going into conventional gardening pages/forums/groups and talking about how great my hugelkultur bed is doing, answering questions, directing them to richsoil.com/hugelultur, then I heard Paul mention he wished more people did this and specifically what would help. I'd like to do more.

Hi Matthew! Thanks so much for being keen to help out! In your question above, are you asking for a comprehensive list of articles?

Oh and here is Ideas of simple tasks that anybody can do at anytime to help. and here is the team permies thread that has a lot of similar content on it, about things people can do to help.

Am I leaving out any super helpful threads in this area everyone?

When i say "List of these", i guess specifically by "these" i meant "things Paul directly asked his listeners to do in exchange for the podcast"

They involve a method called "search engine optimization" that he talks about in one of the podcasts (which one I can't remember, though maybe 103 "eco poser test"). I think in one he specifically says "make a post about chickens on your blog. Make a hyperlink with the word "chickens" to the podcast."

Or something like that. There are several of these where he asks for a specific link, with specific wording, posted specific ways, so that it will show up better in search engines and/or reach more people.
Here's a quote from podcast 001:

"Paul: A bunch of people said they would take on a lot of the jobs that I do every day with a lot of my material, and thus framed me up for the podcast. So I guess that is an important thing. If you are listening to this podcast there is a price tag on it. You got to make a link to it from something or going to something of mine, at least one link.

Jocelyn: Post a video. Link them on your Facebook page, on your blog, on your website. It is easy and quick. "
He gets more specific about what, how, and where later.

I'd re-listen to all the same podcasts and write them down, but I'd hate to drop 40+ hours on doing that if there's already a list.
