Regenerative Culture Podcasts

Regenerative Culture Podcasts

Here are several podcasts where you can learn about regenerative culture practices. We are looking to add podcasts to this list that are in other languages and not centered in the U.S. Please get in touch if you have recommendations.

All My Relations: Hosted by Matika Wilbur (Swinomish and Tulalip) and Adrienne Keene (Cherokee Nation). “A podcast to discuss our relationships as Native peoples—to land, ancestors, and to each other.”

America Adapts with Doug Parsons. Particularly check out the episode called “Climate Change Podcasters Unite!”, which introduces several other climate change adapatation podcasts (practical solutions people are implementing as we face more storms and displacement, etc).

How to Survive the End of the World: Join Autumn Brown and adrienne maree brown, two sisters who share many identities, as writers, activists, facilitators, and inheritors of multiracial diasporic lineages, as well as a particular interest in the question of survival, as we embark on a podcast that delves into the practices we need as a community, to move through endings and to come out whole on the other side, whatever that might be.

The Permaculture Podcast with Scott Mann: A podcast dedicated to Permaculture education, sustainability, gardening, organic food, and resiliency.

Upstream: Unlearning everything you thought you knew about economics. Radical ideas and inspiring stories for a just transition to a more beautiful and equitable world

The Next System Project: an initiative of The Democracy Collaborative aimed at bold thinking and action to address the systemic challenges the United States faces now and in coming decades. Deep crises of economic inequality, racial injustice and climate change—to name but three—are upon us, and systemic problems require systemic solutions.

Forthcoming: Indigenous Regenerative Economy, co-hosted by David Karabelnikoff with support from the Healing and Reconciliation Institute.

Investing in Regenerative Agriculture features leaders in the regenerative food and agriculture space, to learn how to put our money to work to regenerate soil, people, local communities and ecosystems while making an appropriate and fair return.

Grassroots Economic Organizing -interviews with leaders in the solidarity economy, coops, food sovereignty and more.

Indigenous Urbanism is a place-based storytelling podcast about the spaces we inhabit, and the community drivers and practitioners who are shaping those environments and decolonising through design.

Aotearoa Town Hall – a virtual space for exchanging ideas, kōrero and wānanga, artistic expression and all the things which come from a community brought together in a town hall or Marae Ātea.

Decolonize Consciousness Workshop at Blessed Coast Festival

Upcoming Event
Sunday, July 24, 2016
at Blessed Coast Music Arts and Yoga Festival
Squamish, British Columbia

http://www.blessedcoast.ca/

The growing online forum nesting on Facebook will land at Blessed Coast for a live interactive session allowing the opportunity to look a settler-colonialist identity in Canada. The ultimate goal being examined is how to support indigenous sovereignty for collective liberation. 

Are you a settler? What does this identity imply? Together we will step into imagining what an accountable settler identity in Canada can look like moving forward in the future with collective liberation as our goal.

Facilitator:

Sobey Wing is a founding member of Decolonize Consciousness, a board member with Kathara Pilipino Indigenous Arts Society Collective which is a co-organizer of the upcoming Babaylan Conference. He is also on the board of Youth Passageways and sits on a think tank on Cross-Cultural Protocols in relation to the contemporary rites of passage movement.
