EPISODE- 241 RAISED GARDEN BED

I’m back finally!!!

I don’t know why but i have been having problems uploading episodes. I really wanted to upload the actual episode 239 episode file but my site hates that file for some reason. So i say screw it. I finally just tried uploading episode 241 by itself and it finally worked! YAHOO!!!! Anyway, lets get on with the show !!!!!

Today’s episode is going to be on my raised garden bed. It’s actually a raised hugelkultur (pronounced hoogle culture) bed. There are a lot of benefits of using hugelkultur, which i talk about in the podcast. I talk about it more in the way i built it in the pictures below.

EPISODE- 209 ALONE TV SHOW

Hello everyone,

Todays episode is on the history channel show alone. I think Alone is one of the better shows out there right now .The premise is simple drop a bunch of survivalists off alone in the woods and see who is the last man standing. Totally alone in the wilderness filming yourself survivorman style is a great way to test your skills. I guarantee everyone on the show left learning something that they will carry along with them for the rest of their lives. Listen in today on some of my other thoughts on the show alone.

EPISODE-119 THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HYBRID AND GMO

Hello everyone,

today’s show is about the difference between hybrid and gmo. a lot of people use the terms interchangeably and they are not the same. big ag definitely  doesn’t want you to know the difference between hybrid and gmo because they fear that people may quit buying their products. while i am not an expert by any means i try to explain it as best as i can in this episode. i also tell you about some of the things that they are trying to make into gmo or things they have done. one thing i didn’t think to talk about is about  what the long term effects of humans playing mother nature will be down the road.

also i wanted to apologize for not getting a show out last week but i have been super busy, maybe i need to do another update show in the future.
