Listen to Archived Program HERE. Almost no matter where you live in America, you’re not far from a convenience store. The Southland Corporation popularized the concept over 50 years ago with their 7-11 Stores. Today, there are similar kinds of stores all over the nation.
Ben Greene, our guest this program, has come up with an amazing concept. Since transportation in many cases adds a considerable amount to the retail price of food, why not grow and sell in the same place, and make it something that can be working year around, easy for consumers to access, and fun?

“Have a nice day!” Has become the mantra for our modern times. It seems that everyone wants everyone else to “have a nice day.” What an odd thing this is because there has never been a time when more westerners have been depressed and taking mood-altering drugs.

With the issue of GMOs at the forefront of the news, Anthonyand Dr. Group explain how we can gently, and efficiently detox from the effects of GMO foods.

This is another trip into the past in the Far Out Radio Time Machine. Herbalist & Master Gardener, Jeannie Francis goes back nearly 200 years to the first half of the 1800s in rural Medford, New Jersey. She examines the amazing life of Dr. James Still.
James Still was born in 1812, the son of former slaves. A visit from the doctor at the age of three inspired him to want to become a doctor. Growing up, James only had three months of formal education in the 3 Rs – Read’n Write’n and 'Rithamitic (arithmetic). But if a person has a lofty dream, a vision that they carry in their hearts, and can READ, they can accomplish ANYTHING.
James Still’s life was astonishingly hard and filled with challenges and heartbreak. But the dream that he had at the age of three, of becoming an herbalist doctor never left him. This is an inspiring story of drive, determination, and spirit. James eventually became a doctor and in his later years was the third largest land holder in Medford Township, New Jersey.
Comedian and actor Lilly Tomlin once joked, “The only trouble with running in the Rat Race is that even if you win, you’re still a rat!” Most westerners are familiar with the Rat Race because we’ve been IN the Rat Race to one degree or another and have also wanted to get OUT of the Rat Race from time-to-time.
But depending on your lifestyle and obligations, getting out can seem like the impossible dream. Many of us have also engaged in the question, “What is the point of all this and what’s my life about?”
Kevin and Donna Johnson have been there, done that. But they went beyond just the questioning of, “what is the point of running the rat race?” They chose to step off the hamster wheel and create a different life. Kevin and Donna’s objective was to lighten their footprint, build a lifestyle of voluntary simplicity with all the basic comforts, spend very little money, enjoy a biogenic diet, and a simple shelter.
