In this video we take you on a tour of the top 10 medicines that keep us outside the industrial medical complex. If you’ve never considered the following as medicines, we invite you open to this next half hour as we reveal our story of health and well-being, and why our family hasn’t required a medical centre or a doctor for many years.

In this latest video, Patrick examines the role of heterodox thinking both broadly and within more marginal cultural milieus. He is curious whether the potent religious myth of the turned over money tables has currency in this moment and whether permaculture in Australia is falling into wrong story by adopting neoliberal guerrilla tactics of censorship and divisive behavioural strategies that include the creation of contagion/scapegoat classes in order to stifle dissent or debate. What society only recently called a difference of opinion is now being labelled as misinformation. Does this matter? Who is watching? Does anyone care if the heterodoxy is erased?
Here’s the low-fi audio for those with low bandwidth to listen:
