I'm very pleased to welcome the podcast - builder, photographer, publisher, editor and blogger... Lloyd Kahn! Lloyd is the editor in chief at Shelter Publications, has now published eight books on building; this series is called The Shelter Library Of Building Books. Included are Home Work, the sequel to Shelter, Tiny Homes, and Lloyd’s favorite, Builders of the Pacific Coast.In the mid-‘60s, Lloyd Kahn quit his job in the insurance business and began working as a carpenter, first building post and beam houses, then geodesic domes. In 1968, he became the shelter editor of The Whole Earth Catalog, which led him to publish two books on dome building and then, in 1973, the book Shelter (which went on to sell 270,000 copies). Lloyd’s been writing ever since.Podcast linksShelter Publications Lloyds BlogBook: ShelterBook: Tiny HomesBook: Builders of the Pacific CoastBook: Home WorkBook: Small HomesFilm: My Octopus TeacherNext book - Rolling homesEssays - DomesMy roundhouse build, greatly inspired by Lloyd's books (shameless self promotion)Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/buildingsustainability)
This episode we are talking with British folk singer, Jay McAllister AKA Beans on Toast. We began talking about "how the arts, music and storytelling could save the world from climate catastrophe." But, I think what came out of the conversation was that of hope, believing in people and celebrating the good in humanity. The conversation covers the role of the artist, how to have hope, great storytellers, inspirational books, socially distanced gigs.... to name but a few topics...  and it ends with Beans on Toast playing a track from his new album.Beans on Toast Bio:"He’s a hippy, a punk, a poet, a drunk, a die-hard romantic and an eternal optimist. Singing simple songs that tackle big issues. Political protest songs for the modern day, honest and open Love songs. Songs that will make you laugh, but also make you think with no holds barred honesty and quick wit. He tours constantly and has gigged and played festivals all over the world. The Beans on Toast live show is an odd and unpredictable experience. A singer, songwriter and storyteller his self-deprecating quality is not something you often see, but it breaks down the barrier between musician and audience, creating a sense of equality."BS31 Links - Beans on ToastBeans on toast websiteSong - Beans on Toast - Stinging NettlesSong - Beans on Toast - Take your shit home with youSong - Beans on Toast - Strange DaysAlbum - Beans on Toast - The inevitable train wreckAlbum - Beans on Toast - A bird in the handFrank TurnerPlaylist - Beans on Toast - The long drive homeSong - Holly Williams - Waiting on JuneTodd SniderJohn PrineSong - Guy Clark - The Randall KnifeAlbum - Leonard Cohen - Thanks for the danceGabe LeeBrent CobbPodcast - Nick Hayes - Bridges to the futureBook - Nick Hayes - Trespass Book - Rutger Bregman - HumankindTom RobbinsBook - Tom Robbins - Jitterbug PerfumeSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/buildingsustainability)
