Off Gridders

Broadcast on 2015/01/17 (PT)

Are you ready for this? From 2011 to 2013, Vannini and his partner, photojournalist Jonathan Taggart, travelled across Canada to find off-gridders and visit them in their homes. Following the ethnographic tradition, sometimes they even lived with them for a short period of time. Sometimes they followed them around as they hunted, fished, harvested, collected wood, and built their homes. And at times they too practiced living in off-grid homes and cabins. Over two years, they visited about 100 homes and interviewed about 200 off-grid Canadians, as well as many American and British expats living in Canada. Are you ready to hear about their excellent adventures? Trust me, we are in for some surprises. This show sponsored by Chapman Tucson.
