Shirari’s Peace and Love Podcast #6: Economies

Posted on February 4, 2009 by shirari


Tune into the Wednesday, February 4th edition of our podcast to check out our snappy new format! We’ve broken the show into three segments to make it easier for folks to selectively listen to parts they’re interested in:

  1. Local Updates, in which we tell you about wonderful and exciting new developments in our local area, the Fingerlakes region of New York. You’ll hear about permaculture organizing, the new Ithaca Freeskool calendar, and a new vegan group. (We can’t wait to go to their pizza party on Friday!)

  2. Be the Change, in which we give you two tips, both of which, now that we think about it, are pig-related. (And yet, somehow, relevant to a general audience. We think.)
  3. Discussion: Economies, in which we look briefly at some issues with non-profit funding, venture capital, microlending, and global capitalism, as well as with socialism and other isms, before giving an overview of different interesting alternatives (featuring copyleft, coworking, freeganism, CSAs, relocalization, and other awesomeness).
