Episode 98 [8/1] — Vicki Robin, co-author of the classic, Your Money or Your Life; founder of the Simplicity Forum.

Since I talked to Vicki in Ep. 17 upon the release of her then new book “Blessing the Hands That Feed Us: Lessons from a 10-Mile Diet,” she has had a political awakening. She has stood with the Native Americans at Standing Rock protesting the construction of the XL Pipeline, and other actions.

Since her classic with Joe Dominguez, “Your Money or Your Life: 9 Steps to Transforming Your Relationship with Money and Achieving Financial Independence,” she has written or co-authored numerous offshoots, such “Freedom Through Frugality.” The updated, revising edition, called Ultimate MakeOver — is scheduled for release in March, 2018. She actively posts on Facebook and at her soon-to-appear new site VickiRobin.com.

We talk too about her part in the Local Food Summit, which launches August 6. Sign up for the Summit for limited time free access to 60+ stellar interviews with food system researchers, producers and change makers.

Episode 94 – Iowa State Senator Rob Hoog

Once a purple swing-state, Iowa has become an official red state, following the  dismal path of Wisconsin and other regressive governments funded by the Kochs and other plutocrats.

Rob Hogg, Iowa state senator from Cedar Rapids and the author of America’s Climate Century, talks frankly about dealing with backward government.

Brief bio: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rob_Hogg or http://www.robhogg.org/

FaceBook: https://www.facebook.com/rob.hogg.56

He is active with IowaClimateAdvocates.org.

His book, America’s Climate Century: What Climate Change Means for America in the 21st Century and What Americans Can Do About It he calls on Americans to make the fight against climate change our new national purpose. Climate change is the defining historical issue of the 21st Century. After the heat and drought of 2012, Hurricane Sandy, and all of the other recent climate disasters, it is time for America to take climate action.

Having represented Cedar Rapids during an unprecedented flood that caused billions in damage in 2008, Senator Hogg brings a dose of reality to the issue of climate change. What happens this century — ever-worsening climate disasters or effective action to fight climate change — depends on the knowledge and action of every American.

With a fresh, personal, accessible and straight-talking approach, this one book explains why the 21st Century is America’s climate century. In 120 pages, it succinctly explains the science, the consequences, and the solutions of climate change, and helps Americans understand why we need to lead the world in the effort to safeguard our people, our property and our future from the dangers of climate change.

The book is only $10 from local, independent bookstores or Amazon (paper or Kindle).

Extended video interview on Fallon Forum on YouTube (runs 5:15-28:30 of the one hour program)
