This week on Burning Down The House our vocabulary gets big with guests Caroline Bailey, playing vox populi, and Ariana Bain of the company Except, the visionary of the The Polydome, a “revolutionary high-yield sustainable agriculture system for greenhouses” . It’s her hope that one day, by implementing the Polydome a city as big as New York could feed itself with minimal negative environmental impact. Curtis & Co. talk about symbiosis by design, integrated stability, quantitative tools for social network analysis, and break it down for you so you can come out more knowledgable about your food, how it’s made, how it gets to you and a whole lot more.
