If you haven't listened to Episode 598 you really should.

Once you do you will see what an amazing source of information Paul Wheaton is.  Paul has agreed to come back and go more deeply into one of the above subjects. So get voting and commenting with questions you want me to ask him.

Jack,
I'm surprised you would ask a question that has such an obvious answer.
Keep bringing him back until you cover all of them.
 ;D

I really, really, really, really, really liked this show!
I have no idea what Paul's politics/economics are. But his logical techniques are Austro-libertarian philosophy applied to gardening/animal husbandry.

Great show, tons of information to follow up on & learn more about.    I'd love to hear more about all the poll topics or whatever else Paul would be willing to discuss.  Enjoyed his sense of humor also.

Well folks consider this a vote to set the order of the next few Paul shows, he is excited to come back so it isn't so much one over the other but what we do next.  ;D  I knew you guys would love Paul.

I would love to hear info on all subjects in the poll, but if I had to pick one it would be the permaculture techniques.  Great show Jack!

I know it wasn't an option but I would love to hear more about building frog habitats for the back yard in an attempt to keep pests down.....in fact any creative and unique permaculture methods to reduce pests would be great information.

Wofati and Rocket stove heaters, first and second followed by all the others knowing that having shelter and a way to heat it, cost effectively, are pretty high up on the list.  I have Mike Oehlers book "The Fifty Dollar and Up Underground House Book" and David Lyle's "The Book of Masonry Stoves" but I am always seeking more info.  But agreeing with the above, pretty much anything Paul talks about should be both interesting and informative.  I also like the longer podcast when its this informative.  Thanks Jack

I chose Rocket mass heaters due to this insane cold snap and snow. Paul was an amazing guest that I honestly listened to twice (once while shoveling and once while reading the forums) and I can honestly say next to The Patriot Nurse and Dave Canterbury as my favorite guests.  I would love to hear all of them in a series dedicated to Paul and his principles for permaculture, keep up the great shows Jack.

In this order IMO:

- Rocket mass heaters
- shelters
- permaculture techniques

Awesome show.

I'm with Hare on this one (do them all), but I'd love to hear more on rocket mass heaters, especially more on retrofitting one into an existing house.

Great show Jack, maybe the best one so far. Thanks!

What a hoot - some very good info + it was sure fun - and I do think that f-bomb was appropriately used.

I would recommend maybe one subject in depth and I do love the general talk touching on a broad subject matters.  Maybe a topic on these are my ideas that get me in the most "hate" mail.

I'm particularly interested in the rocket mass heaters also. Especially the ones that he mentioned can be retrofitted into existing homes or even used in apartments.

The middle three.

Most interested in the nitty gritty technical side of the rocket heater.

Some examples of the extent that h-culture can reduce irrigation, and the possible downsides.

Some details on the tradeoffs of the WOFATI, and code acceptance of them.

Would love to hear the details of building a wafati.  Sounds like something that would work well in the Pac NW.  I also listened to this one twice, and followed most of the links.  Glad to hear he had fun.  It sounded like you guys were just rapping over a frosty one.

Jack-
This show was the BEST SHOW EVER!

Have him do all of the shows, once a month, starting with the most popular on the poll and ending with the least.  I nominate Paul as a guest host too, when you go on vacation!  I have been a fan of his for about 9 months now.  He seems to be the most forward thinking of all of the permaculturists that I have encountered.  A large number of the videos he shoots are done within about 15 miles of my house, which makes me feel more empowered to do these techniques.  2011 is the year of Hugelkulture for me - dozens of dead but standing cottonwoods on my property are coming down to be buried and covered.  I am BEYOND excited.  It solves so many problems which I won't go into now.

I completely agree with Bookie: a monthly show with him would be amazing. 

You've had some great guests and probably the only person you had better chemistry with was Ron Hood.  Fun show to listen to and very informative.

Thanks for doing more interview shows again.  I really enjoyed your last big push for interviews (May or June?).  It mixes things up, puts you in a different place, and really adds to the listenability of the show day after day.

I'll probably post something in the permaculture section here and/or at permies.com, but it seems like if you did the Hugelkultur thing and put six inches of alfalfa hay over the wood, you'd mitigate your nitrogen loss.  This article made me think about it.  Might be an interesting blending of techniques.

This was, hands down, one of the best interviews I've ever heard!

You and Paul are indeed, "kindred spirits".
The information exchange, enthusiasm, breadth of topic mastery and variety of topics floored me.
That was a lot of great info in a short amount of time and has really got my old brain wanting more.

We're in suburbia and want to put in a few chickens.We had thought of a chicken tractor, since we have only 1/2 acre and hawks are a serious predatory concern here.

We would love to hear more about options for raising chickens that would thrive in our less than optimal environment.


But really, ANY topic You and Paul want to discuss would be a great benefit for us all.

Thank you both for a great show!

Much obliged.

Anything.  Seriously, that was the best episode ever.  But I clicked on Wofati.
