What is permaculture?

by AAspades2016 on Sep 26, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

While Diego doesn't necessarily aim to tackle this question, this podcast does a great job of articulating what applying permaculture tools and ethics looks like in real life and in an amazing variety of contexts. It's not about downing the current system it's about creating a new one that out competes the status quo. Great work!

The latest podcasts with Javan and Rob and the collaboration episode on summer greens strategies comes in stride with what our farm is dealing with and thinking about. Great content, great guests, great interviewer. Thanks for all the hard work, Diego.

Best small scale farming and permaculture show.

Diego manages to bring real pasion to a topic that is often considered very niche. maybe it is just me, I have had my heart race and also been moved to tears listening to permaculture voices. If your financial situation allows, i highly recumend supporting diego to keep this show going. The least we can do is give him a good review. This collection of shows is of amense value to small scale growers and I.

So much content

by EddieMunster11 on Jun 01, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

This show is a treasure trove for those seeking to grow in life. I've gained enormously on subjects ranging from animal husbandry to growing just about EVERYTHING. The one issue that Diego needs to address is catagorizing or organizing the vast amount of information he's gathered from his shows and guests. Wouldn't want that undertaking myself..ha He's impacting listeners and they in turn are impacting the world.

Great Stuff

Pragmatic permaculture

With his relentless stream of content, Diego and his guests deliver practical information about implementing permaculture into profitable agriculture and our daily life. Listen in to learn from leaders in the world of urban farming, sustainable ag, regenerative farming, and permaculture.

So great!!

Diego is awesome and brings in such relevant information and guests to interview!! The topics of conversation are entirely dynamic and super honest. He has a way of sharing tough ideas in a way that communicates honest challenges in a way that inspires empowerment, not fear. So so needed in our culture!! Thanks Diego!!!

Interviews are great, monologues no so much.

by robohym on May 12, 2017
Rating: ★★★★☆

Diego does great in his interviews by getting relevant guests and asking great questions. A lot of good content comes from the interview episodes and I find myself always taking notes. On the other hand, when the episode is just Diego himself doing a type of monologue I am unable to listen. His tone of voice and inflection during his solo podcasts is much different from when he is interviewing. It reminds me a lot like Dan Carlin's way of talking in his podcast Hardcore History, which I love, but when Diego does it I find it unbearable and can't listen. But again, the interview episodes and great and of high value so I still highly recommend his podcast for anyone interested in small scale farming.

Horrible host.

by Effilcdar123456 on Nov 30, 2016
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

The show has good subject matter on occasion but the vast majority of the content is verbal diarrhea from the shows dim witted host. The bulk of the podcasts are more likely to be about how sleepy the host Diego is as he whines about how hard his life is. Skip this and find another podcast on the subject of permaculture because this usually isn't. If you must listen to it then skip to interview episodes, or really to where anyone but the host is talking.

This content has changed my life, and continues to do so. I look forward to these shows every day, and wish I could have been exposed to information and inspiration like this 20 years ago. Oh well, at least we still have right now to start being the change we want to see.

Diego had done an awesome job looking into permaculture and real world applications.From growing greens to rasing broiler chickens, you can learn a lot from the people whoare successful at it right now.Awesome work. Just wish I had more time in the day to listen and absorb it all.

Best Farming Podcast Period!

by Farmer Elisabeth on Sep 10, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

This is by far the best podcast on small scale farming. The production quality is amazing and Diego always asks the questions that I want to ask. The guest list is the who's who of the sustainable ag world. If you are a farmer, or want to one day farm, this is the best investment of time you could make.

This is one of my favorite podcasts!

This podcast covers everything it might not all apply to what you are looking for but the stuff that does is excellent!


by Asheville LandMan on Sep 02, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

This is the most well rounded podcast on all things agriculture I have listened to with a regenerative/sustainable slant. There are many specific “how to do” episodes related to permaculture/agriculture/farming, but the most valuable is the business information. Business is not always the sexiest information, but it is the most important content to consider with farming as a doable career. The podcast is both real world (realistic) and inspirational. Countless episodes have gotten me into the right frame of mind to plan properly and ensure I give my family and I the best chance to make a real go of this with minimal failure. Thank you Diego for thinking of the ecological future of this world and posting content that makes a difference.

Permaculture Voices

by Epicbynaturefarmer on Aug 30, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

I have been listening to Permaculture Voices for going on 3 years now. Diego does a fantastic job producing top quality original content. This is my go to podcast for high quality information about starting your own business, finding ways to use permaculture more in your life, and being inspired to make a change in your life. I'm 16 now and listening to The Urban Farmer with Curtis Stone has inspired me to start my own permaculture based business selling microgreens and salad greens. I'd highly recommend this podcast to anyone.

Essential Podcast for Farmers

by thebuffington on Aug 27, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

As a young farmer, I find this podcast to be an essential series of lessons, conversations, recommendations, and topics that I apply to daily and seasonal use. He puts out so many episodes, and quality episodes at that, that I found myself even supporting this podcast financially because they became educational and valuable components in my career. I hope you enjoy them as well.

I ALWAYS learn something from Diego and/or his guests, whether its something related directly to farming/permaculture, having a family, or running a business. He’s super consistent in providing new material, so you’ll always have something to listen to - and not just a bunch of airtime jabber! Thanks, Diego!!

My favorite podcast!

by Robb Williams- Alabama on Aug 15, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

Without a doubt my favorite podcast. One of those I can't wait until the next release. I have found several of my other podcast favorites through this one. As a beginning livestock farmer with a full time job and family, I certainly have identified with the series on Darby Simpson, Grassfed Life. Though not a vegetable farmer, I hang on every word of Curtis Stone because so much is applicable throughout business. So far the most relevant podcast on how I identify with the food movement and permaculture. Thanks!

Simply the BEST!

I am so grateful for your work Diego. Every time I get a new podcast from PV its like candy or a new Christmas present. I can't thank you enough. You and your interviewies are helping me to become a consultant to others. Furthering my purpose in life as to doing it myself and offering that product (tangeable and intangeable) to others. Thank you for all the added interviews this year. It takes a lot of info to start a major life move and you are handing it over to us on a silver platter! Gracias!

Great solid informative and entertaining

by Smerkleb on Aug 09, 2016

Diego has really stepped it up and offers so much great content. There are now several regular programs within the podcast with different specific in depth focuses: homesteading, chickens, market gardening, raising cattle and pigs, plus great interviews with authors and movement leaders. Even as a vegan permie I find plenty of great stuff to listen to! I listen to the programs about farming with animals with Darby Simpson and Justin Rhodes too because they are really fascinating to learn about whole systems businesses and there is a lot of great insight beyond the "products" themselves. The episodes are rich with info and are well crafted and thought out. My stand by podcast!

Can't wait till the next one.

Diego has an awesome guest and show line up. Sometimes more information in a show than I can comprehend. As a future farmsteader I can't wait to get started. Then I get aggravated because my wife and I are over the road truckers right now. Can't wait to put some of these great ideas to use. Then I listen to one and realize I am planning to much to start. Keep it up Diego Footer you are doing an awesome job.

An incredible array of content on this show from food production to business and life skills. These interviews go deep into all manner of topics related to seeking out and being the best at your life's calling. Some are down in the weeds, others at a 30k foot level. All well produced.

Very Good Podcast with Lots of New Content

This is the best Permaculture/farming/small farm podcast out. The Host, Diego, creates a lot of content and has expert guests field questions and talk about detailed things that relate to permaculture and small scall farming. Full of new content every week, this is a great podcast.

The bridge between...

by thatkarelguy on Jul 28, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

I found Diego and permaculture voices after taking my first PDC. This show is a very much needed gap filler between the utopian-like ideas of permaculture and the reality of the modern world. Without this show I wouldn't know how to begin to take steps to change my life towards one that is more in step with the natural world. Now that I have found Permaculture voices and have listened to countless examples of people making it happen, I no longer have a good excuse to postpone my own permaculture dreams of a better life, and a better planet. Thanks for all your hard work Diego, keep it up.

TUF Series is Awesome

by BCG Westbrook on Jul 27, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

Started listening to PV because of the "The Urban Farmer" segment with Curtis Stone. Really find the information and formats to be extremely helpful for an aspiring urban farmer. While I mainly listen to TUF series, I have listened to some of the other episodes and take some value out of them too. Diego, thanks and keep up the good work. To all the other people looking to get into farming, either for veggies or livestock, subscribe you will be glad you did.

I recently found this podcast and will be playing catch up for a while, but I have already gained so much valuable information from this podcast.

I tapped on four episodes that arose my interest through the titles. They all mentioned Justin Rhodes and chickens within the first ten seconds. Is this channel a giant ad for him? I came here for permaculture wh encompasses a lot more than a man with chickens.

This has become my #1 podcast

by Jesse m Anderson on Jul 13, 2016
Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast has provided so much value on how to turn ideas into practice. Sustainable and regenerative practices broken down into practical applications. Weekly conversations with farmers are my favorite, but are most valuable because Diego asks the right questions in a way that's easy for thorough answers. Only podcast where I will routinely listen to past episodes again because there are loads of information on each episode.

Sustainable Ag at its finest

I went looking for a podcast on urban farming because I wanted to grow all my own produce and I came away from PV knowing I wanted to make a career change. PV does a great job taking sustainability/permaculture principles and showing how to make them economically sustainable as well. Highly recommended.
