Your feedback regarding the crossroads I found myself at with the podcast was incredibly positive. It resounded clearly that should the show stop it would be a loss to the community.
Though I’m still figuring out how to move forward in a sustaining way, and will continue to need listener support, there is a new direction. I’ve step beyond the crossroads at which I found myself, and begin wandering down a familiar, if somewhat shadowy, road.
One of those ways is to produce episodes that are unscripted, less tightly controlled, and much shorter than what would normally come out once a week. Ideally 15 minutes or less, these small bites of permaculture are something you can listen to while walking the dog, sketching out a new site design, or planting a single tree. Nothing you need to settle into for an hour or more.
Small solution, more permaculture.
But! These segments need a name, and I’m holding a listener contest to make it happen. Go to Facebook.com/ThePermaculturePodcast, like the show if you haven’t already, and then look for the post “The Short Shows Need a Name” from March 3rd, 2014, and we’ll work together to pick a winner. The submission window for names closes on March 17th, 2014. Voting for the name will begin shortly thereafter.
