DAVE KINCAID aka “PERMADAVE“
A Tool and Die Maker and Tool Designer by trade, in 2011 PermaDave purchased 40 offgrid acres at 6000’ in Northern AZ to create his own vision of an eco-village style homestead, where his soul family could live and thrive together for generations to come.
After discovering Permaculture in his quest for sustainable offgrid living techniques, PermaDave has since completed 3 Permaculture Design Courses and his life is forever changed and charged with a passion to learn and share the knowledge and wisdom of the Ethics and Design Principles of Permaculture throughout the world.
His vision is to make Permaculture a household word and reach as many people as possible as we rediscover this 10,000 year old science that deals with sustainable human habitation on this planet in all of its forms.

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!
A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.
In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.
The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
