  2. Jack Great show! I was doing dishes like always listening to the show and that crash scared the shit out of me! LOL. glad that you’re safe man. keep up the great work.

  3. Great show as always. I listening to the podcast in the office and I think I jumped three feet when the crash almost happened. Glad to hear that everyone was ok.

  4. Jack,

    Hope you had your Bug Out Bag with you today. Sounds like you needed a clean pair of shorts!

  5. Raintree is expensive and packs and ships irresponsibly. Better are Burnt Ridge (W. Washington, Lawyers (Montana), Weeks(Oregon). There are many others. For herbs: Horizon Herbs. For birds and veggies: Sandhill Preservation Center. Books: Bill Mollison’s Permaculture: A Designer’s Guide; Carla Emery’s An Encyclopedia of Country Living. If you have forests, spend some real money on Dave Jacke’s Edible Forest Gardens (2 vol.) For your house: Ianto Evans’ The Hand-Sculpted House and The $50 and up underground house book.

  6. @Maureen,

    I do find Raintree expensive, but I have also found them to have certain varieties I can’t find anywhere else. I will check the sources you mention, I have no dog in the hunt for Raintree my comment was about using their catalog as a resource.

    That said I have ordered from them twice and saw nothing wrong with their service or shipping. I guess you had a bad experience.

  7. Hi Jack,

    I’ve been a big fan of your podcast for a long time. I can’t wait to listen to this episode. I’m downloading it right now. Keep up the great work, Jack!

    FYI: There’s a minor typo in the episode title. “Intoduction” No biggie, just sayin’.

  8. Jack I love your show and have been a fan for awhile now. I have studied Permaculture in both Australia and Europe and practice it where I am at the moment so I was looking forward to hearing your views on the subject.

    I want to congratulate you on one of the most accessible introductions to Permaculture I have ever heard. It was very informative from the word go and would help people get into the concept without frightening them away from the vastness of the field of study.

    I have always felt there was something missing from Permaculture i.e. the why do it, your “do it for economic reasons” coupled with the, I don’t want dependence on other people really rounds out the whole field.

    I believe that Modern Survivalism and Permaculture walk the same path with some minor ideological differences and if people from the hippie/eco Permaculture side of the fence could listen to your views you might actually recruit a few more gun owning libertarians.

  9. Hi Jack-

    I love listening to the podcast, I have learned so much! Could you please post the name/type of shrub that produces cherries. I am very interested in getting some of these.

    thanks so much and keep up the great podcasting
