Getting to Know Rot with Cassandra Marketos

on the magic of meeting a compost pile
3

In this episode, I talk to compost practitioner and writer Cassandra Marketos about how composting can radically transform the way we look at the world. We get into the stigma around waste, why compost seems to scare so many people, the joy of learning from our intuition, the resilience and magic of a well-tended pile, and what it really means when we say that we’ve thrown something “away.”

We also talk a bit about my own experiment composting dog poop (it works, I promise!) plus get into lots of practical advice about composting, including how to do it in a small space when you don’t have access to land.

Cass has a book coming out through Apogee Graphics called Compost This Book, which you can preorder here!

You can also listen to this on Spotify or Apple Podcasts now. Pls leave a five-star rating or a nice review if you like it and want more people to hear it!
