0 161

Mizar and I were on our own this week and for the first time, we pre-recorded the entire show. We even got carried away and had fun doing a couple of video product reviews, the one above, which was one of them.

The recording session was on the heels of my whirlwind trip to Detroit to visit Ford, where I got entrenched in their design and innovation culture and had a blast driving some cars. I talked about it a bit in the opening of the show, and our Green Dude report was with Seth Leitman (aka GreenLivingGuy), who was also in Detroit playing with cars.

Feature Interview: Rob Hopkins, Founder Transition NetworkRob Hopkins, Transition Network

We finally got a chance to catch up with Rob Hopkins, founder of Transition Network. Our GD Correspondent Nomi Lyonns, who lives in Salt Spring Island, BC has reported a couple of times about her work with Transition Towns in her community, and we have been inspired and intrigued. He called us from the UK and the connection was much better than our usual call-in connections here in the US!

Happy 4th of July!

Green Diva Meg delivers supplies to Habitat for Humanity in Detroit

Yup that’s me helping unload a gorgeous Ford F150 that we drove as part of a fleet into downtown Detroit to a Habitat for Humanity site. Detroit was hit very hard by our recent crappy economy. They are rebuilding thanks to Ford and Habitat for Humanity and so many energetic and caring volunteers. I had a blast driving with a couple from Miami who were at the event — Gigi and Giorgio, who publish a gorgeous digital driving mag called ImpulsoMag
