Hello, I'm Ben!
I live in Perth, Western Australia, with my wife Moraig, and children Japheth and Ivy.
I love connecting with nature in many different ways. I was a landscaper for 15 years, and am now in a season of transition. I'm finding out what I care about and what I love to do... This podcast is part my journey.
I created this podcast to serve as a platform for discovering the intricate relationships between human health, soil health, and ecological health.
I am passionate about microbes and how we can live in symbiosis with them. They can enrich our lives and our conscious experience, and I see this podcast as my contribution to the evolution of human consciousness.
- to reconnect people to nature.
- to educate people on how we are inextricably connected to our environment.
- to inspire people like you to improve your 'microbiome' and ultimately, the 'biome' we all share.
My aim is provide a platform to share stories and conversations with people who have devoted their lives in some way to better human life and heal our planet.
I interview people who are involved in the art and science of working with microbes. I'm always looking out for people who have changed the way they live because of the interactions or lessons they've learned from nature, and more specifically, from their area of discipline.
We talk anecdotal stories that may allude to unknown dynamics of this universe, but also rigorous scientific evidence about how microbes can benefit us though our health directly, or through the way they affect our environment.
I personally believe everyone can contribute to restoring this world to symbiosis if they believe it it is possible.
I hope this podcast inspires you, and that you reach out to connect with me to share stories on your journey to the probiotic life.
