Will the 'Call of the Forest' reach the G20? (562)

This week Stefan and Saryn spend the bookend of the program largely talking American politics both internally and internationally in the shadow of the upcoming G20 meetings in Hamburg, Germany. We discuss both the successes and failures of Trumps war on resources, a livable climate and jobs... I mean 'waste'.

The middle of the show is a wonderful interview with the inspiring Diana Beresford-Kroeger, award winning scientist, host of the documentary 'Call of the Forest'. Diana talks to us about biomimicry, the connections between forests and health and cultural roots, and the philosophy of science as it relates to modern man made environmental issues.


Diana Beresford-Kroeger is a world renowned author, medical biochemist and botanist. Orphaned in Ireland in her youth, Beresford-Kroeger was educated by elders who instructed her in the Brehon knowledge of plants and nature, resulting in her unique combination of western scientific knowledge and the traditional concepts of the ancient world. Her ambitious bioplan encourages ordinary people to reconnect with nature, joining together to replant the global forest. Her books include “The Sweetness of a Simple Life”, “The Global Forest”, and “A Garden for Life.” In 2016, the Royal Geographic Society named her one of 25 women explorers in Canada.
