About this Episode
From far northern climes, we are joined by Sarah Schindler, land use and property expert, hipster scholar, and lawn destroyer. In this episode we discuss Maine, backyard chicken raising, zoning, Brasília, the virtues and pleasures of law-breaking, and banning lawns. Sponsored this week by the Monsanto Corporation. Not really.
