Episode 35 - The Green Episode - Talking about Permaculture with William Faith

Episode 35 - The Green Episode - Talking about Permaculture with William Faith

July 23, 2019

No, not an episode about Mistress McCutchan's favourite colour! Since we've discussed goth being inherently political - coming from punk roots - we wanted to put together an episode to discuss a crucial topic, The Environment. We speak about permaculture with punk/goth musician William Faith and have a tonne of green resources for you. You don't have to wear Birkenstocks and hemp to care about the environment
