Show Notes

Today’s episode is all about coffee. AKA: the good old morning brew—the life-saving afternoon pick-me-up—and the fabled cup of Joe. But before we get carried away with all that, we get into some stats about coffee. Then we talk about some of the challenges of its production, preparation, transportation, roasting, and selling. This is a cherished drink that's faced a lot of controversy for centuries, having associations with revolutions, addiction, mold toxins, and the all-too-common "coffee jitters". At the end of the show, we talk about Indigenous farmers using coffee as a way to become more food sovereign.

#15 - Biopiracy

Today’s episode is about biopiracy… but first, we share an Indigi-Fact that turned out to be a cool surprise to both of us. After that, we dive into some history, a few definitions, a case study, and how biopiracy can affect Indigenous communities. We also explore some ideas for how this issue can be addressed now/in the future, and why this is such an important topic for Indigenous peoples around the planet. This one was interesting to bring together because it’s such a big topic that ties into things like intellectual property rights and discovery doctrines from Europe… and there’s a lot more to it so we’ll probably revisit this one again sometime soon. Enjoy! Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - Biopiracy definitions and history - Intellectual property rights and patent law - Ayahuasca patents, culture, and place - Ideas and Potential Solutions ~ Links & Resources: [Seven Generations of Hominins](http://humanorigins.si.edu/evidence/human-family-tree) [The Leach and the Earthworm](http://ipcb.org/publications/video/files/film_project.html) [Introduction to Biopiracy](https://sites.duke.edu/amazonbiopiracy/) Biopiracy Definitions: [One](http://moderncms.ecosystemmarketplace.com/repository/moderncms_documents/I.3.pdf) & [Two](https://sites.duke.edu/amazonbiopiracy/) Intellectual Property Definitions: [One](https://www.wipo.int/edocs/pubdocs/en/intproperty/450/wipo_pub_450.pdf) & [Two](https://stats.oecd.org/glossary/detail.asp?ID=3236) [Ayahuasca Article](https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/09/12/the-ayahuasca-boom-in-the-u-s) [Patents and Traditional Knowledge of the Uses of Plants: Is a Communal Patent Regime Part of the Solution to the Scourge of Bio Piracy](https://www.repository.law.indiana.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1232&context=ijgls) [Bioneers Radio Audio Series](https://bioneers.org/) ~ [Like this show?

#31 - What a Crazy Year!

We realized that we needed to do a bit of an update about where we've been over the last year and although we meant to keep it short, we started talking politics... you know how that goes. We talked about life, love, and sadness. We share about what we've been up to and where we're going, and then we went down the political rabbit hole for about twenty minutes.
