Ambrose Desmond took a trip to South Africa where he made a new friend who took him to Ecotopia, on a small island off the coast of Finland. Later, he meets a hermit who lives on an oasis in the New Mexico dessert. Ambrose also shared a story on the previous episode.

Anthony Holdsworth called the live show to share a true story about his very censored painting.

Anthony Holdsworth's "Oakland Global Warming # 2"

Awesome paintings Mr. Holdsworth. Thanks for sharing.

Ambrose Desmond, and a few other folks, share their tales. Mere seconds before this podcast file begins I asked the radio listeners to share their true stories of street protest, but that’s not what I got.
