Welcome to Biocitizen Banter, a podcast dedicated to environmental philosophy featuring lively discussions between people active in the effort to bring biotic health to our communities and commonwealth.
In this episode California Ex. Director Jesse Carmichael interviews filmmaker Samantha Bode whose documentary, The Longest Straw, tells the story of the real impact of the LA Aqueduct – the primary source of all of LA’s water.
This discussion introduces you to the predicament Los Angeles is in, a giant coastal desert city drawing—perilously and complacently—its very life from water sources far from its dwellers’ attention or awareness. It also discusses what positive steps can be taken to prepare for the future, including how to practice permaculture techniques even in the middle of the city. Samatha’s is a voice of inspiration, urging us all to ACT!
