    This is great! To hear all of you in one conversation in real time, with a smart host, sweet. I listen to these quite often.

    For the regulars here: you want to join the chat that goes on during the taping, get a UStream login ahead of time. It usually takes a couple of tries for me to get in, for reasons I cannot explain. But the chats are fun–sometimes a bit of MST3K-ish chatter, but also a way to submit questions.

    I told you the chat was fun–the centipede chickens, how could you resist…???

    Too bad I missed the chatroom! It was a fun show to do, and I’m definitely open to doing a lot more things like this.

    Holy crap I was wondering when you were going to get on a podcast Anastasia.

    always late to the event.

    How is it that growing corn and soybeans on class one farmland and still using
    vast amount of industrial inputs all the while draining down aquifers to turn
    out little more than animal feed, fuel for gas guzzling cars and corn sugar for
    soft drinks and other sugary substances with the inch gaining result. Just how
    is that in the realm of desirable?

      Did anyone here say that was desirable? I don’t recall saying that.
