TGoG 124 – Sustainable Living with Emma Sutcliffe

Listen to the Episode Below (00:21:03)

Today I am inviting you into our dining room or inner sanctum if you like, for a candid lunch-time chat with me, Kim, and Emma Sutcliffe.   There’s nothing quite like having lunch with like minded-people and chatting about sustainable living.

Not much more to say about this episode except to pour yourself a cuppa, grab a homemade scone and enjoy this weeks show.

TGoG 123 – Solar Talk with Emma Sutcliffe

Listen to the Episode Below (00:21:16)

Recently, I was interviewed by Emma Sutcliffe about my small solar power system that I built myself.  You can read about it in this post titled To Grid or Go Off Grid. Why Not Do Both?  We conducted the interview just before a delicious lunch that Kim prepared, so you will hear her in the background of the recording Emma took.  It was an energetic solar talk!

During this episode we focus more on grid-connect solar PV and talk about my system, what I think about the future of residential solar PV is, and how batteries and hybrid systems will change everything due to a rapidly falling price and a very low feed-in tariff.

At about the 17 minute mark, when I am talking about our visit to the Waubra wind farm, Kim drops her clanger about a few of the people she would like to strap to the blades of a turbine.  A truly laugh-out-loud moment.

So if you would like to learn a little more about residential solar photovoltaic systems then this is the episode for you!

TGoG 122 – Old Fashioned Living with Michelle Snape

Listen to the Episode Below (00:42:57)

There are many ways to describe how many of us live, but one that resonates strongly with me is old-fashioned living.  Living in a simple and hard-working manner like our grandparents did to maintain a peaceful and joyous life.  Its the simple things that often bring the most joy in our lives.

It kind of reflects the this weeks guest lifestyle.  Michelle Snape lives a simpler old-fashioned life in the Manning Valley in NSW, which is about 3 hours drive north of Sydney.  On a three acre block with hubby, and two teenage boys, she practices the old, simpler ways of living.

She writes about her old-fashioned lifestyle at her blog A Vision Splendid.

It’s also a first for the podcast as it’s a bit of a three-way interview between me, Kim, and Michelle.  It makes for a very interesting chat and we really like the way Michelle thinks.
