10. Why We Changed Our Names Together - Interview with Brooke Sycamore


In the first-ever interview on the Good Life Revival podcast (fka Permaculture Lifestyle), I chat with my wife Brooke about the search for meaningful work and a values-based lifestyle - a search that eventually brought the two of us together.

Coming to you in the early evening from the tent on our back porch where we sleep (it's springtime y'all!), Brooke talks about her childhood building a house with her parents, becoming disillusioned with academia and her work as a park ranger, and eventually settling on to the farm where the two of us currently work.

We also explain why we decided to change our names together - Sycamore isn't my given name, if it's not obvious :) Flexing her nature-teacher muscles, Brooke does a really great job explaining the ecological role that Sycamore trees play, and also what Sycamores represent to us.

I hope you enjoy it!
