Paul Wheaton is not for everybody, and that’s OK. For one, the dude curses. A fair amount. There’s a reason it’s marked “explicit.” Next the things he proposes are pretty far from the mainstream. Probably past your comfort level. I like listening to this podcast because it’s about building a better world through learning new things, instead of being angry at bad guys. Lord knows there’s enough to be angry about. Spend some time pondering alternatives.

podcast 405 – Review of Wild Wild Country

Podcast cover
Read more

Paul Wheaton and Jocelyn Campbell discuss the new Netflix documentary, Wild Wild Country, a six-part mini-series delving into the events surrounding spiritual guru Bhagwan Shree Rajineesh when he moved his ashram from India to Oregon in 1981 and what transpired after the move. Paul and Jocelyn begin the podcast with a review of the show, discuss the thoughts and reactions that they experienced while viewing the documentary and share some of their views on community.

Paul and Jocelyn explore the strained relationship between the Rajineesh religious community and their closest local neighbors in the town of Antelope, Oregon. Eventually conflicts between the groups leads to an extreme hatred between the two groups and an escalation of harassment and bad behavior on both sides.

Paul draws a loose conclusion between the “weirdness” of the Rajineesh and the perceived “weirdness” of Permaculture enthusiasts. Paul and Jocelyn continue on to explore their individual takes on what is or is not a “cult” and if the group of Rajineesh rose to the level of a cult. Conversation moves on to some facts about the Rajineesh community and their Antelope, Oregon neighbors. Jocelyn then spends some time commenting on how difficult it is to watch a community be so closed minded and hateful towards other people who are different from themselves.

Wrapping up Paul talks about how the entire attempt by the Rajineesh to create their own community and the problems they faced are more the norm than the utopian view that most people envision when they think of intentional community. Paul talks about the level of conflict and friction that can occur between people attempting a different type of lifestyle, like Permaculture, and neighbors, family and friends who are not on board with people who are attempting a way that is different than their own.

Jocelyn shares how fortunate they are to be able to be in a situation where she and Paul are able to live life more on their own terms. Jocelyn points out that building community and relationships is an important part of Permaculture but sometimes you just can’t build a positive relationship with some people.

Ending on a positive note Paul comments that he has brought himself to a place where he is strategically living in such a way to minimize the possibility of headaches and feels it going pretty well.

podcast 404 – Sharpening

Podcast cover
Read more

A podcast with Paul, Fred and Jim (one of the instructors from the Appropriate Technology Course that just ended). Jim is the author of “High Art and Subtle Science of Scrounging”.

They reviewed a video about knife sharpening by Murray Carter, a 17th generation Yoshimoto blade smith.

The video contained lots of excellent information but it was difficult to stay attentive to it, possibly due to it’s long length (2 hrs and 50 min) and the density of the information being conveyed. Murray revealed some secrets and described the video as being the basics of knife sharpening for beginners.

Murray only used 2 stones and completed most of the sharpenings in just 2-3 minutes. He prefers to use water over oil stones and the 3 finger test and a few others for checking sharpness. He emphasises technique over contraptions and discusses why several of the contraptions are ineffective.

There was a detailed discussion of the 7 step procedure of knife sharpening described by Murray. They also went into some detail about the sharpening of primary and secondary edges and Murray’s sharpening set up.

Several ways of testing sharpness were described as well as why you should never use a grinder to sharpen knives.

podcast 410 – Foody bits – Part 1

Podcast cover
Read more

Paul and Jocelyn discuss their health issues related to food and particularly Paul’s recent medical challenges with his spinal cord issue, gout and galstones. Paul says that this is a podcast that Jocelyn has been anxious to do for several months now.

Paul states that he had never been to a hospital until about 2 years ago when he suddenly had excruciating pain from a blown disc in his neck that had squirted disc jelly over his spinal cord. However, his insurance decided that he wasn’t really in that much pain and had him sent home with tylenol. While he was flat on his back in bed, a great device was set up for him that allowed him to suspend his cell phone over him so that he could use it to communicate online.

Jocelyn goes back in time a bit to describe how when they had met 10 years ago, both of them were avoiding several foods, mostly for mental clarity reasons.

Paul says that he had avoided dairy since his 20’s but since his podcast with Sally Fallon-Morrell, he now wonders if perhaps he only needed to avoid pasteurized dairy. He also was trying to eat less grain and avoid sugar which would give him a zip and then crash afterward. Jocelyn would get wicked headaches for several days after consuming the tiniest amounts of wheat. Now they both eat very strictly organic.

Jocelyn says that she would have issues with anemia and her thyroid as well as brain fog and that both her and Paul have done lots of research about nutrition over the years.

Paul says that he finally paid out of pocket to see a specialist regarding his disc issue who recommended scheduling surgery about 5 weeks out since about 50% of the time these issues would improve on their own. And after about 2 weeks of bed rest, the pain did start to subside and continued to gradually improve over the course of several weeks to months.

Paul tells of how shortly after he had arrived at the property, his left foot started to swell significantly. Sometimes getting so large that his toes could not touch the ground. He googled it and decided that it was probably gout. He then ate lots of cherries, which are known to help with gout, and it resolved. Then there was the issue with galstones. When he researched that online, he found that it predominately effects women and that pretty much all of those who have had them say that they are worse then childbirth, pain wise. Now, he has not had a galstone attack since Oct 2017 (currently it is Aug 2018).

When it first happened, the galstone pain was so bad that Paul thought that he was probably dying. The answer at the hospital was surgery but by that time they had medicated him for the pain so he wanted to wait and do some research on the problem. The doctor that he went to was also very keen on doing surgery right away.

Jocelyn says that if a galstone gets stuck in the gal duct, it can burst the duct and leak bile into the abdomen which can be deadly so most doctors just want to take it out. They connect the liver to the intestine so that the bile just drips directly into it.

Paul explains that the purpose of the bile is to help brake up the fats that are in our food. However, sometimes something goes weird and causes rocks to form which can get stuck. Finally, the surgeon (who was grey haired and probably near the end of a long career) said that there is a way to change the diet to eliminate the stones but that no one in her experience has ever stuck to the diet and avoided the surgery. Paul and Jocelyn accepted the challenge. The pain was very motivating for Paul. It has been 10 months now since his last stone passed. He did have three times where he passed galstones. A sonogram can be used to visualize the stones but was ineffective at seeing the area in Paul due to his large girth. In general, it takes a couple of years on the diet to clear out galstones. Basically you avoid fats. When he and Jocelyn were working to avoid more sugar, they had tended to eat a rather high fat diet of bacon and pork.

Paul says that his second galstone attack was one week after his first one. There were several contributing factors. Jocelyn was away for a week taking care of her mother so Paul didn’t bother to eat much. Then he had a meeting at a restaurant and he had a large hamburger with fries. Eating very little and then having a large meal of beef and potatoes turns out to be a common cause of galstone attacks. Then he read up further on it and decided to eat less of the problematic foods, about 1/3rd of what he used to eat. The doctor said that after 5 weeks of no attacks, your sensitivity to an attack decreases. Also, you should eat frequently to avoid attacks.

Jocelyn says that after the third attack, they really focused in on the diet. It consists of olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, lemon juice, malic acid, and apple cider vinegar. Only one yolk per day but as many whites as you want. No dairy for a while and he even went vegan for a while but the diet ended up being too limiting with all the galstone foods that he should also be avoiding.

Paul says he can now eat yogurt, ghee and mozzarella cheese but no wheat, corn or potatoes. There is almost nothing he can eat when they go out. Sushi is OK, there is one item at Chipotle he can eat and now they have found a pizza place that makes a rice based crust that he can have.

Jocelyn says that she is working very hard to get lots of veggies and greens into their diet. When Paul was having his spinal problems, she had watched Terry Wahls TED talk about fueling mitochondria with diet to reverse her MS. Jocelyn is aiming for four veggies per day which is challenging. It turns out that onions and garlic are problematic as well as cheeses, beef and pork. So they switched to fish and chicken and veggie oils and added in helpful foods like artichokes, radishes, turnips and beets (but Paul doesn’t like beets). Unfortunately, that diet ended up being very high in purines which triggered Paul’s gout and no amount of cherries would fix it this time. Then he just went vegan again for a time. There is some kind of relationship between gout and galstones but it is not well understood. Possibly it is related to high inflammation in the body. They have ended up with a galstone – gout – blood type diet. That leaves very few foods that Paul can eat.

Paul says that the blood type diet was very important to his doctor so they are trying to incorporate that element as well.

Then the gout came back again and they discovered that sea weed and chlorella are also very high in purines and so removed those as well.

They are both working to get more activity in their lives but Paul finds it particularly hard to pull himself away from work that he’s trying to accomplish online. Now they work for a bit on one of his projects and then on Jocelyn’s projects each day for exercise.

Jocelyn mentions that although both of them are fat, doctors are surprised that neither of them have high blood pressure or diabetes issues which she relates to eating an anti-inflammatory diet.

podcast 411 – Foody bits – Part 2

Podcast cover
Read more

This is the second half of the Foody Bits podcast. Paul Wheaton and Jocelyn Campbell are on their way back to Wheaton Labs from a road trip and continue their discussion about health and food.

Paul is expecting the food systems that have been put in place at Wheaton Labs will start producing at a higher level next year and the hope is that eating locally from the property will help increase their health and well-being. Paul expects that once they are able to eat more foods produced on their land that their overall health will continue to improve, he might lose weight and it’s possible that he might stop wondering if since the Brain is primarily composed of fat does a low-fat diet influence your ability to think?

In an effort to spend more time being active Paul developed the 20/20 project time goal where he and Jocelyn spend 20 minutes a day on projects Paul would like to get done and 20 minutes per day on projects Jocelyn would like to get done. Paul’s projects tend towards larger items: Dry stack walls, Earthworks and road upkeep, new trails, a lot of Chop and Drop and the Hugelkultur Siege Ladder. Jocelyn’s projects tend towards smaller projects like hanging Planters, planting things and beautifying the Lab.

Jocelyn then discusses the book she is currently reading, Brain Maker, The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain for Life by David Perlmutter and how the microbes you have might impact your health and well-being as well as your weight. The discussion moves on to how Paul’s fight against gallstones and gout restrict his food options to a fairly narrow range. Beef and pork are currently not on the list for Paul. No wheat or corn, no dairy except for mozzarella, yogurt and ghee. Minimal refined sugars in moderation and apple juice are on the list of things Paul can and should have. Lots of vegetables, lots and lots of vegetables. Paul’s go-to items currently are yogurt with an apple juice sweetened jams and chips made from cassava (links to these can be found in the Gout and Blood Type discussion). Limited amounts of chicken and fish, one egg yolk per day and as many egg whites as desired.

Their daily menu is usually eggs and greens for breakfast, lots of fermented veggies, moderate amounts of sautéed onions and garlic. Lunch tends to be more of a toss-up and for snacks Paul is able to have Peanuts, Cassava chips and vegetable dips (usually with Jocelyn sneaking lots of veggies into the dip). Dinners tend to be Taco Tuesdays, with black beans (the only kind Paul can eat), Thai peanut sauce over Zoodles (zucchini noodles), fruity salads, Fish Fridays, Spaghetti-flavored cake (lasagna), frittata’s, fresh greens with hot soup, coconut milk curries with veggies over rice.

After the listing of common meal types Jocelyn shares a list of threads on Permies that relate to food and health:

Gout and Blood Type discussion

Paul’s Cervical Radiculopathy
Save Your Gallbladder Naturally by Sandra Cabot MD
Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon
Perfect Health Diet by Paul Jaminet Ph.D. and Shou-Ching Jaminet Ph.D.
Eating on the Wild Side by Jo Robinson
Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollen
The Third Plate by Dan Barber

Paul and Jocelyn then thank some of the Patreon supporters and the discussion turns toward how Jocelyn stepped up and did most of the cooking for the recent PDC and ATC courses. Jocelyn relates she was told by an older women who attended the PDC that eating the food Jocelyn provided helped her arthritis subside. Jocelyn also discusses how pre-event food prep helped with the setup and that the food leaned more towards a vegan and plant-based menu then at some of the previous events. Paul did want to make it clear that if people who have special dietary needs are coming to events they need to make sure they bring their own items with them.

The podcast winds up with Paul and Jocelyn discussing their recent stay at the Enliven Bed and Breakfast in Kenmore, Washington. Enliven is a fragrance free facility that caters to travelers with sensitivities to fragrance and chemicals and is a place that they would like to return to when they are in the area.

podcast 399 – Hugelkultur at basecamp

Podcast cover
Read more

Paul and Fred discuss the history and report on the progress of the hugelkultur berms at basecamp. The podcast starts out with a brief history of why the berms were created, how they were created, the components included in the berm itself, and the part the berms are playing in improving soil conditions.

In the first couple of years there was a lot of animal pressure from deer, turkeys, chipmunks and rabbits until the chipmunk population started to ease and there is some speculation between Paul and Fred as to why that might be. Once a feral cat, aptly named Gert, appeared on the hugel scene the animal pressure mostly disappeared and the hugel beds begin to grow lush and “jungle-ly”.

Paul and Fred move on to discussing the soil conditions, or lack of soil, at basecamp and the state of the property when Paul acquired the acreage. They explain why the main hugelkultur bed near the Fisher Price house is very tall, narrow and should be physically impossible except for the fact that it currently exists.

Paul explains the concept of “Bootcamp for Perennials” and how that program pertains to hugel berms and the plants that have been installed on the berms. Organic matter is being increased on the berms through different means, including Chop and Drop, Mulching, planting and other means to keep the material in place on the berms. Discussion turns to the types of plants that have gone through Bootcamp, Paul’s appreciation for Rhubarb, transplanted fruit trees, seasonal conditions and the impact on trees and plants around wheaton labs.

Fred and Paul then talk about the plants found on the berms including Sepp Holzer’s perennial grain, volunteer potatoes, wild buckwheat, rhubarb, sunchokes (Jerusalem artichoke), prickly lettuce among others. They then segue way into the advantages of indigo clothing, tall fescue and the ability to fertilize the property in a natural way. The discussion moves on to a lengthy list of fruits and vegetables that are now growing on the hugelkultur beds, including buckbrush, serviceberries, lemon balm, comfrey, vetch, mustard, mullein and many more.

After the cataloguing of growth currently on the berms there is an overview of the intention and reasoning about establishing a polyculture environment without a large amount of actual effort. Now in the fourth year the hugelkultur beds are improving the soil and beginning to produce food and the hope is that in the next year it will be possible to grow a full hugelkultur garden with minimal-to-no watering.

The Podcasts winds up with a summary of the 2018 PDC for scientists and engineers taught by Alan Booker of the Eldenbridge Institute.

372 – Well

Podcast cover
Read more

Today’s podcast is about rural wells and fixing things yourself. It’s Paul talking to Fred about the prolonged adventure of repairing the well down at basecamp when it stopped functioning a few weeks ago. They were without water for 15 days, but they did get the job done! It just took… a whole lot longer than it seemed like it would when they started. And several people. And several purpose made tools. I don’t want to detail the story here because some of the humor comes from the surprises.

Suffice to say there were multiple surprises and the well at basecamp for Wheaton Labs is a very special well.

367 – Botany in a Day Review – Part 5

Podcast cover
Read more

Paul had Neil Bertrando from Reno, Nevada with him in this podcast to review Botany in a Day, by Thomas J. Elpel.

The podcast opened with Paul bragging about having huckleberry pie for breakfast. Paul said reading the book is helping his getting the ‘order of orders’ clear. Neil came up with a mnemonic: King David can only find good salami. This corresponds to kingdom, division, class, order, family, genius, species.

They went on to talk about various members of the pink sub-class + some other plants they felt were relevant to this discussion.

Neil brought up the point that there are functional differences at each level of orders, especially at the family level, and that this is important for permaculturists. This book seems to be organized by family. Neil pointed out that this book is written for North America and that tropical plants are not included. Neil explained that Pink refers to a family of plants with a particular flower shape and other interesting details. They went on to talk about properties of cactus, some of which are quite unusual. Paul had gone to a presentation by a Blackfeet woman who is a plant expert. Both Paul and Neil were struck by the difference in approach between native American perspectives and that of European immigrants toward plants.

Saponin is contained in many species of the Pink family. Not just soap, also a fish stunner.

Chickweed, great wild edible, came up and led them to discuss palatability in wild plants. Neil mentioned Breeding Your Own Plant Varieties, by Carol Deppe. The implications of what one might learn from her book are really worth giving some consideration.

Mullein (non-native yet appreciated by native Americans) came up and Neil and Paul brought up the contradiction of using herbicides to control non-native plants. We have all been immigrants at some point in our family’s history. Neil was eloquent and pithy on this subject. Toby Hemenway is cited bringing up the question of ‘what do you eat?’ if the arbitrary designation of ‘non-native’ is clung to. The concept of ‘invasive plants’ is also discussed.

They went on to the Purslane family, which have many great properties. Oxalic acid is contained in a lot of this group, which is worth studying.

Bitterroot was discussed. This led the discussion to considering both sustenance and commercial systems in relation to the usefulness of plants. Identification of plants would be easier if the pictures of plants in many plant books were of the plants at harvest time. We need to know more about beneficial functionality of the landscape, socially as well as botanically.

Miner’s Lettuce was discussed. Paul discovered that the term succulent is more inclusive than he thought. Throughout this podcast Neil’s unfailing positivity was a useful conjunct with Paul’s playing the Devil’s Advocate.

They went on to the Goosefoot family. Spinach and sugar beets were discussed. Have sugar beets had genetic modification? Check that out. In principle, sugar beets are a great fodder plant. Then on to mangles. Many species of this family accumulate salt and so desalinisation was discussed. Neil brought up that both the Brassicas and the Chenopods do not have mycorrhizal associations and that that’ll take some thinking. Lamb’s Quarter’s accumulate calcium and are good under fruit trees.

Then they went on to the Amaranth family, which are closely related to the Goosefoot family and share many properties. Pigweed came up. Amaranth is a great grain. The accumulation of nitrates in the body of the plants was discussed.

Next was the Buckwheat family. Rhubarb is in this family but different genera. Dock and sorrel are in this group. They went on to discuss corralled animals that are constrained in what food is available will eat whatever’s there. As dosage sometimes makes the difference between nutrition and poison, this is an important note for consideration. As is animals’ role in ecosystem health.

podcast 414 – The problem with batch box rocket mass heaters – Part 2

Podcast cover
Read more

Part 2 of the podcast picks up with Erica pointing out that most people learn only one way of starting a fire and use that for every fire they start. There are actually multiple different ways to lay and start a fire. Erica’s mother used to say “If you light the fire, it’s your fire – you are responsible for messing with it”. Ernie points out that “Gilligans” have been taught to start a fire by their parents and grandparents in a way that worked for their stoves and their situations.

Paul moves on and shares his fire starting technique. Paul and Jocelyn accumulate burnable items all year long to start fires with and by the time the season for heating rolls around Paul has a large backlog of paper products. In an attempt to use up his backlog Paul puts approximately 12 pounds of paper in the back of the burn tunnel and then prepares with regular sticks to be used after his ridiculous amount of paper is started with his propane torch. Paul then puts in the sticks and sprinkles the fire with magic Fairy dust (wood shavings from making kindling) to get the fire going well.

The discussion then turns to the main topic. Paul and Ernie believe that a “J-Tube” system burns less wood than a batch box heater and Donkey disagrees. Batch boxes are designed to be capable of burning more wood at one time than a J-Tube system and Donkey believes that if you balance the mass with the firebox and only load the batch box once you will get more efficient burn and transfer to the mass. Erica points out that both freight trains and a Prius are both efficient in different ways for different purposes. All the builders do agree that if you are novice that it would be best to build a J-Tube or several outdoors before you attempt to build a batch box heater.

Paul is still of the opinion, even after much discussion, that batch box heaters are still inferior to J-Tube style and making it difficult to move Rocket Mass Heaters forward. Donkey disagrees with that assessment and points out that many Masonry stove builders in Europe are doing fantastic work. It’s pointed out that Batch Boxes are not a novice toy and really should be attempted by more advanced builders. Donkey also points out that in the early days of the Rocket Mass Heater it was possible to make modifications to the basic design but after fifteen years of experimentation and building there is not as much room currently for improvement over the basic design.

Erica points out that the fact the mass in an RMH is still putting out heat when the stove is not burning which is way more efficient than any other stove currently working. The fact that you can heat your home with 1/10th the wood is too fantastic for most people to believe so there is discussion that the concept might be better accepted if it was claimed that they only use 1/2 the wood, even though they are way more efficient than that. Ernie says that he and Erica pad the amount of wood that they use to be more conservative so that people will believe them more readily.

Ernie points out the discussion with the people currently in the room around both J-Tube style and Batch Box heaters is really just about quibbles until you introduce the Gilligan Factor. Donkey points out that J-Tube Rocket Mass Heaters are designed to be built in a lower price range with lower quality materials and the Batch Box are branching back into a more professional stove build with a much higher price point.

Donkey and Ernie, both instrumental in developing the RMH technology, ramp up a mini-rant about how they have created the instructions and put them out into the universe and the inability of people to actually follow the instructions in order to create successful builds. Erica ends on a high note with “a bad workman blames the tool when things don’t go right and blame failure on bad luck, a good workman attributes success to good tools and planning”.

The takeaway overall is don’t build a batch box for your first build and make sure your first J-Tube builds are done outside until you have the concept and skills down before attempting to move them inside.
