E267 – Daniel Harkins Saves The Forest



Daniel Harkins is our friend, a member of Team Sincerity, and also was deployed through the National Guard to fight wildfires in Washington state’s forested areas.  We invite him in to ask about his experiences and what he learned about the forest while he was there.

Also: Brock and Aaron go to Terry’s cross race, and Brock has a question.

E142 – Adam Leyrer: Co-Creative Pruning



Adam Leyrer from Co-Creative Pruning is truly car-free and runs his arborist business on a fantastic bike trailer from Seattle’s Haulin’ Colin.  We discuss becoming an arborist, certification, why no cars, the bike & trailer setup, hand powered tree care, partnership with a beekeeper, and Forest Park Conservancy donations.

Brock is a witness to a hit-and-run, and Aaron attends a bike move and a repair clinic (gallery below).  Listeners Marcus & Beth from Chicago are in town and sit in on the taping as well as generously providing our drinks!
