This week we talk with Andrew, who is helping run the Slab City library this past summer while Cornelius is in Alaska. We discuss what it's like to live in Slab City during the summer, how to prepare if you decide to come out, what's involved with running an anarchist library in the desert, and what we'll be doing at this year's Dirty Scouts Jamboree.

The StP Podcast is a weekly series discussing various topics related to underground travel and the community around the website Squat the Planet. Join us each week as we have a rotating cast of folks sharing their experiences in travel and answering your questions.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
