We went green with this week’s episode!
Harpoon Jed was back in the studio this week to discuss sustainability and green living. A review for a new book by German historian Joachim Radkau entitled The Age of Ecology inspired us to search around for some sustainability topics, which we covered in the first segment. We talked specifically about gains being made by alternative energies in America’s capacity to produce energy.
Next up, we had an interview with Predator/Prey, a Canadian band who shared their 2-part, self-titled concept album with us. They told me all about the process of putting the album(s) together and about crowdfunding the production using an Indiegogo campaign. Their songs “Shoal of Fish” and “Sounder of Boar” opened and closed this segment and we also used “Knot of Snakes” (one of my personal faves) in the background of segment 1.
In the final segment Harpoon Jed, who is a professional green contractor, gave us some tips for green-ifying our homes so that we can live more sustainably. We mentioned an article about ‘green’ roofs from Popular Science that is definitely worth a read.
