TPH Update

This is very short but I wanted to give you guys a quick update since I haven't gotten anything out in a while. Listen to the show and I'll tell you about my new website but I forgot to tell you about Podbean's new app! If you are an Android user you can download an app from Podbean that will allow you to easily download the show onto your phone. If you are a new listener their app will allow you to go back to episode one! When you open the app tap on Add URL and type in The Pagan Homesteader. This should add the show to your list. Happy listening!

TPH - Episode 119 Part 1

This turned into a much longer episode than normal...3 hours! Much of which I think we spent rambling but hopefully is entertaining. Since it went so long we thought it would be best to break the show into two parts to make it a little more digestible. So, in this episode we fill you in on some things that have been happening around both homesteads and then we get into the heart of the show. Today's main topic is about the Pagan environmental statement that was released on Earth Day of this year. If you haven't seen it yet you can find it at:

www.ecopagan.com

We discuss each section sharing our thoughts, likes, and dislikes. If you have already read the statement then I encourage you to dive in. However, if you haven't read it yet, you might want to look it over and see what you think before you listen to us give our point of view. Enjoy and I'll see you soon for part two!

P.S. I also mentioned at the end of the show that I have started a Go Fund Me campaign to raise money for a pump for our well. If you would like to check out the site and make a donation please visit me here:

TPH - Episode 118

Today my co-host Karin Copperwood from the Tiny House Homestead joins me again as we discuss a new law that was passed in Oklahoma allowing teachers to carry a gun in school. We also ramble on about why you may want to own a firearm in the country and at some point we expound on the virtues of Pinterest. So join us as we explore yet another facet of life in the country.

Warning: We will be discussing some Pro Second Amendment views so you may not agree with much that is said in this particular show.

TPH - Episode 117

Have you seen the stories floating around the internet about the Naugler family in Kentucky? This is the family that has 10 children that were recently taken by Child Protective Services. Many people have been jumping to their defense stating that this is an over reach of government and that they are only being targeted because they homestead and homeschool. Really? Is that all there is to it? Come join me and my guest Karin Copperwood from the Tiny House Homestead as we look at this situation more closely.

If you are not familiar with this case please check out the following articles:

TPH - Episode 112

Have you been thinking about jumping into the wonderful world of chicken keeping? Keeping chickens can be a lot of fun not to mention the added benefit of getting fresh eggs. Often people fall in love with the idea of keeping chickens from the ideal photos of adorable chicken coops and fat, happy chickens. This is of course a very picturesque presentation of keeping chickens. Today we will discuss the ups and downs of keeping chickens and present you with a realistic picture of keeping our little feathered friends.
