Episode 41: Rewilding your yard with Jeff and Ann VanderMeer
This week's episode begins with more "bigfooting" by the state legislature, once again in the pocket of developers, attempting to curtail the amount of impact fees local municipalities have accessed homebuilders in order for them to build the infrastructure necessary for all the new residents.
Craig Pittman and Chadd Scott are joined this week by Jeff and Ann VanderMeer. The married couple live in Tallahassee. Jeff is the best selling author of the Southern Reach Trilogy (Annihilation, Authority and Acceptance). His new book is a thriller, "Hummingbird Salamander."
In a wide ranging conversation, we discuss:
St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge
VanderMeer Creative and the couple's philanthropic efforts
