  1. This is a great interview. After listening to this, as well as reading the excerpt from Michael Phillips book in ‘Acres, USA’ magazine, I’m putting his book on my must-read list. Ordinarily nothing would get me to buy a new book, I always buy used. But I may have to make an exception in this case!

    • Well, for heaven’s sake, Julie, please order your book through the link at The Biodynamics Now! Podcast! If Michael’s book imagine doesn’t appear below the show notes, you can enter Amazon through any link on the show notes pages and any purchase you make during that entry will accrue a small rebate for The Biodynamics Now! Podcast. Believe me, while it’s the thought that counts, we could use the money, too! ;-)

  2. I think what you wrote was actually very logical.
    However, think on this, what if you typed
    a catchier post title? I ain’t saying your information isn’t solid., but what if you added something
    that makes people want more? I mean Biodynamics Now Podcast!

    is a little vanilla. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post titles to get people to open the links.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little livelier.

  3. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility
    but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though!

    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Many thanks

  4. Thanks for all the info you’ve shared over the years! It has helped guide us all to better farming practices, and ultimately to building a website dedicated to rebuilding our agricultural systems.. It is a teaching / learning / sharing forum.
