Episode 5 – Sustainable Radio Greencast

We went green with this week’s episode!

The opening song for this episode is “Sore Winner” by the band Foon.

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.

Please check out the Listener Survey that we’re using to learn a little more about our audience. You will not be asked for any identifying information, and it will only take about 3 minutes to complete!

The show closed with the song “Help Me Out” by Thomas Harmath.

    We ran a little long this week, but that’s because the conversations were so good! There’s a ton of really useful info in this episode, so give it a listen and let us know what you think.

    A topic close to my heart, thanks… The more we understand how nature functions, the more sustainable we can become, so potentially the Predator/Prey segment ties in well with the greening theme.
    Wish all drivers would think about the effect of this huge heavy machine having to stop and then restart. As a pedestrian I try to cross between groups of cars rather than forcing any to stop for meCould be good to share the little things we do that can add up to something bigger
