Jeff Mann is an artist from the U.S. now living in southern Ontario who works with junked car parts into art pieces, primarily masks. The art is absolutely fabulous, but you'll also really enjoy Jeff's perspective on environmental values and how to talk about it as he tours Ontario with his art pieces. Something he says that really resonated with us is that it's probably a good idea to get out of your head, and into your heart when talking to the general public about social and environmental values.

We also talk about TransCanada's filed suit against the U.S. government for killing the Keystone XL pipeline. The reason are both sad and hilarious, but it's also a useful warning that this is even possible via NAFTA… on the eve of giving international 'trade' agreements superpowers through the TPP.

Stefan Hostetter also gets on his soapbox about "planning to win" and a cool idea for a way to revolutionize micro-technology like cell-phones to be less of a scourge on the planet.
