episode 39

     Jeff Schlaf graces us with his presence once again and joins Jason Abbott to chat with Shane Davis. Shane is a research biologist, activist, data miner and founder of fractivist.org. We get some sobering facts about the state of our current energy harvesting, specifically on hydraulic fracturing from the oil and gas industry. There seems to be a lot of up front profits while the effects of devastation to the environment are written off for later generations.

IGC 38 – Christopher Smith (Tiny the movie)

episode 38

Jason Abbott chats with one of the members of Speak Thunder Films, Christopher Carson Smith. Christopher decided to chase one of his dreams and make a documentary film in the process. Tiny: a story about living small, is the product of that journey. Not only does it chronicle the events set in motion for building the tiny house, but it also provides interviews with other tiny housers. We talk about the ever changing American dream, some issues with materialism and consumerism, and the therapeutic nature of making things. We also discuss some challenges behind the building process and how living in 100-500 sf. can change ones perceptions on the world.
