    Pat writes: If you’ve never foraged before the prospect could seem a rather daunting. You can get wet, you can get dirty. Occasionally, as I have found out, you get spectacularly stung by a rogue wasp that thinks your rosehips are his rosehips! All this for a handful of berries, some windfall apples or unusual greens? And yet the popularity of foraging is increasing – for pleasure but also as a form of activism and a statement of intent about localised food systems. On this week’s show I’m joined by food activist Darren Flint who runs independent foraging walks in south London, Paul MacKay from Transition Belsize in north London, and mushroom expert Andy Overall co-founder Fungi to be With.

    A micro edition of Deep Fried Planet with new host Pat Thomas, who writes: My guests for this edition of Deep Fried  Planet will be campaigning barrister Polly Higgins, whose new book  ‘Eradicating Ecocide‘ argues that the best way to save the planet from corporate and political corruption and destruction is to make ecocide a recognised crime against peace. I’ll also be joined by activist-lawyer James Thornton, founder of the environmental law group ClientEarth, which works in Europe and beyond to find pragmatic ways to make the law work for the environment instead of against it.

    “This week Joss Garman and guest presenter Graham Thompson discuss recent direct actions in Aberdeen and London.

    “Joss speaks to Dan Glass and Tilly Gifford of the Climate 9, a group of activists currently on trial in Scotland for an action taken at Aberdeen airport. The group closed down the taxi way in order to reduce the total number of emissions from flights that day. Their decision to cease their protest was controversially based on a false police report that they were endangering the life of a new born awaiting air transfer.

    “Also on this week is James Marriot of Platform London. James discusses his part in the recent protest at the Tate Britain calling for an end to BP’s sponsorship of the arts. Marroitt discusses how corporations like BP use sponsorship packages in order to obtain “social license to operate” or in other words, to distract the public from the environmentally detrimental activities that drive their profits.”

    “Today Deep Fried Planet premieres on Resonance FM. Presented by long time environmental activists Ben Stewart and Joss Garman, this is the first in a weekly series of discussions about current environmental affairs.

    “Stewart and Garman discuss the BP oil spill – “America’s worst environmental disaster in history” with Joseph Romm and Duncan Exley. Romm is a Senior Fellow at the Centre for American Progress, Assistant Secretary of state for Energy in the Clinton Administration and once described by Time magazine as the web’s most influential climate blogger. Exley is Director of FairPensions, an organization that lobbies to promote ethical pensions investment in the UK.

    “As BP’s share price tumbles, should your pension fund be disinvesting in fossil fuels altogether as they increasingly turn into potential liabilities? How will the BP spill effects Obama’s attempts at clean energy reform, and how might it impact the power of the Republican Tea Party movement?”
