TGoG Podcast 099 – Old Things

Listen to the Episode Below (00:34:43)

Kim joins me on the show this week where we talk about our recent visit to the Mill Markets at Daylesford, Victoria.

This market had lots of very cool old stuff that we discuss during the show, which inevitably leads to a rant about designed obsolescence.

We finish off with a little bit of our philosophy about buying quality items and repair them if they break.

Some of the cool old things items we talk about are;

  • Cast iron clothes ironsOld Things - Soda Syphon
  • Hand sheep clippers
  • Scythes
  • Jaffle Maker
  • Hand Beater
  • Hand Drill
  • Singer Sewing Machine (hand and foot operated)
  • Tin snips
  • Vinyl Records (Ben had never seen one)
  • 21st Century TV Annual
  • TV chairs
  • Butter moulds
  • Typewriters
  • Soda Syphon

And probably a few things I didn’t list.  I am sure you will enjoy it.

Now for episode 100.  We are asking you all to send in voice mail questions via the speakpipe widget below so that Kim and I can answer them in the episode.

They can be about anything as long as the focus is on sustainable living.  Please record something, even if it is feedback about the show.  We want to make the next episode really special and memorable.


Don’t be shy, we would love to hear from you.  All you need is a PC, laptop, notebook, tablet, or smartphone and record your message.  It is as simple as that!  Don’t forget to play it back before sending to ensure it is audible.

So, until next episode, stay green and keep keen!

TGoG Podcast 098 – Sustainable Living Events

Listen to the Episode Below (00:22:14)

Firstly, I would just like to let you know that Episode 100 is rapidly approaching.  It is going to be a massive show, and it will focus on listener questions.  So don’t be shy.  Send in a sustainable living question or a message for Kim and I using the widget below, and we will play it and/or answer the question on the 100th show.  I am really looking forward to this milestone event in two weeks time.

This episode is a roundup of sustainable living events that I will be speaking or manning a stall at or visiting in the next two months.  I also talk a little about the yearly Sustainable Living Festival here in Melbourne.

I talked about the following events;

Little Green WorkshopsI also chat about some of the happenings around here, and new products in our shop www.littlegreenworkshops.com.au.  We have been so busy making and putting up new products lines, including preserving kits and equipment, handmade soap, and soy melts.  Add that to all the other kits, supplies, and equipment that we have available for Cheese, Soap, and Soy Candle making, we haven’t had time to scratch ourselves!  Starting a small business is not for the faint hearted.

So, we hope you can get to some of these sustainable living events and drop in and say gidday.  Most are free and very educational.  I would love to meet you.

February is the busiest month in the sustainability calendar here in Victoria.  I love it, because it recharges my internal green batteries, and puts me on the path again for another year of our journey.  Without these types of events, I think I would feel a little lost, and a little alone.
