WGDR Radio, Relocalizing Vermont

Posted: February 27 2009

chickenThis  station out of Goddard College in Vermont broadcasts a 1.5 hour segment every Thursday morning on "relocalizing" Vermont.  Tune in, stream it live, and check out the archives!  Local economies are where it's at.

Relocalizing Vermont explores how to strengthen the local economy in a time of energy constraints brought on by peak oil and other factors. To relocalize is to return to local production of food, energy, and goods. We also look at ways people are maintaining and strengthening democracy, a pre-condition of local control. Part 1 (8:30 - 9:00) consists of the Peak Oil Check-In, Bucky Buckaw's Backyard Chicken Broadcast, and calendar announcements and/or a short interview or audio clip. Part 2 (9:00 - 10:00) generally consists of interviews with one or more guests. Musicians, mostly local, serenade us with their recordings from time to time throughout the show.
Carl Etnier has worked on sustainability issues all his life, with a 17-year career in sustainable water and wastewater. He is director of Peak Oil Awareness, an organization devoted to stimulating conversations about peak oil.
