Well, it has been three months since I (Tim) launched the Self-Sufficient Life podcast. I’ve released 16 episodes, one each week, since mid-September, and I’ve used two formats for the show. The different formats are:

Format A) Episodes where I narrate stories of others who are embracing self-sufficient lifestyles. An example of this format is any of the first 12 episodes of Self-Sufficient Life. Here’s an example from episode 3:

Format B) Episodes where my wife, Liz, and I share insights into our self-sufficient lifestyle and describe why, how and what we’re doing. Here’s an example from episode 16 about moving to a new homestead.

Season 1: Episode 14: Encore Episode | From Investment Banker & Fashion Designer to Sustainable Farmers [PODCAST]

Welcome to Episode 14 of Self-Sufficient Life! In this episode you’ll hear the story of how an investment banker and a fashion designer traded the glamour of Manhattan for goats and brambles in Tennessee.

Imagine being a young couple living the good life in New York. One’s an investment banker, the other’s a fashion designer and both are on their way to the top. Then, they get this wild idea–“Hey, let’s quit our jobs and move to the country to milk cows and make artisan cheese.” Only when they find their farm, it’s not what they imagined.

This is the story of starting an artisan goat soap business. Actually, the dream was to start an artisan farmstead cheese business, but one obstacle led to another and forced James and Eileen Ray down a different path as they struggled to give birth to Little Seed Farm.

If you’re into modern homesteading, self-reliance, preparedness or self-sufficiency, grab some coffee and pull up a chair!
