Alternative Maniax #28: Independent Music & Alternative Tips and Stories

Olalala! What a warm and sunny day again! Trees and seeds are coming out with passion ha ha. The spring is early, and I hope you got to enjoy it.

Tonight we’ll have some new small stories and tips about squatting, and we’ll talk about an alternative way to be alive: the “breatharianisme”:

“A breatharian is a person who is nourished by light and has no need for food or drink. Breatharianism is within human potential, but for most it remains dormant. Those who feel drawn to living on light nourishment can activate this potential, but not said that it is an easy task.”

It looks like a big alternative to food to me! Here is a video documentary where you can get more details about it:!

As usual, some wicked new underground artists to listen:


Sua alteza o Vagabundo

Keny Arkana

Tune yourself!

Alternative Maniax Radio Show #21: GROW IT YOURSELF! Sustainability and autonomous green community/spaces

Posted in Alternative Community Garden in London, Alternative Maniax Show, autonomous green spaces, Music, permaculture with tags , , , on December 8, 2011 by Alternative Maniax

Jingle bell Jingle well, make this end of the year a funky tale!

Have you noticed the difference between a tomato from the supermarket in December and the one your grandma’ harvested in September in her garden? Gastronomy or the “organic market” knows the difference: that is why you have to pay the price nowadays to eat something tasty and nutritive. We know it is not everyone who can afford it.

Energy is some other really expensive matter for those who choose to pay. In other words, it is really expensive to depend on the system to have the most basics needs: water, food, electricity.

Our guest Merlyn Peter is here to share his experience in sustainability and permaculture. What is it? How can we be more autonomous in order to reduce the cost and waste of the energy we need?

Get some tips tonight, tune yourself on Optical radio

This show is the last of this year, Optical Radio is on vacancy.

The Alternative Maniax show is wishing you a happy autonomous end and beginning of the year 🙂 (dunno if it make sense? haha).

Dear listeners,

Welcome to this new show!!

On the mic: A.

Tonight we have 2guests: Kevin & Marc.

Kevin used to have a conventional lifestyle. Then he was living on the street for 10 years before he decided to live in a different way without being homeless.

Marc used to rent and have many jobs to raise his family on the traditional mode. Then he met some people involved in some more alternative living and thinking.

Kevin and Marc discover a new way to think and see the world through a lifestyle which is still controversial for the conventional society and people.


Music of course. You can find all the songs you will listened tonight on the right side of the page 🙂
