    If it wasn’t for you, there wouldn’t be 500 episodes full of interviews, news, and updates about permaculture, sustainable design, and regenerative business. There wouldn’t be conversations with the authors you probably already had on your shelves such as Tao Orion, David Holmgren, Toby Hemenway, or Jessi Bloom. To hear from the latest thought leaders to elders of the community.

    Without you, this show would never have become a resource to hear from the latest thought leaders and elders of the community, or where new authors would sit down to record their first media interviews.

    One of those once-first-time authors is my friend Jereme Zimmerman, who joined me in 2015 to talk about Make Mead Like a Viking. He returns today for this anniversary episode to talk about his latest book, Brew Beer Like a Yeti.

    Recorded in-person at Mother Earth News Fair in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania, we talk about ancient brews, interesting flavors, and the domestication of yeast. We dive into the historical importance of fermented beverages, hops, and water. How brewing was, for most of human history, of a communal nature.
