In Part 3 of Ben and Paul's chat we pick right back up where we left off and start talking about the illustrations that Paul uses on his site. He has worked with different artists on and off but has had a good working relationship with Alexander Ojeda. He has just scratched the surface of the work he would like to do with Alexander.

This then morphs into a discussion about if Permaculture and Permies where to take off tomorrow would Paul (and others) be ready for it. They discuss having a team in place to help support the empire.
Paul and Ben then talk about permaculture and technology. There is discussion of a Permies app and the possibility of having a Permies Zello Channel.

Ben rounds out the questions talking about The Flintstones and by asking Paul about hiring Paul to consult for you. But if you post your questions on the forum you will get the answer for free! Paul also says that if you are looking to hire your consultant for your site, you may be better off with a local person. They know the area, the local plants and trees and what kind of ordinances you will need to get going.

Anyone know the title of the book they were talking about in this episode?
I got this tall by not having enough crisco in my diet as a kid. This ad looks like it had plenty of shortening:
