In Episode 61 we’re joined by friend of the pod Joey Santore of the Crime Pays But Botany Doesn’t podcast. We talk about how being in tune with the ecosystems you live in can be a deeply rewarding experience for the poor alienated souls of late capitalism and how to get started if you want to learn about basic botany. We also talk about the similarities between botany and history — and how much we hate lawns and parking lots.
