On this edit of Episode 10, we take an intimate look at the the most domesticated plants of all … houseplants! My guest, Jane Perrone, is the host/producer of the indoor gardening podcast "On The Ledge." We talk about adventures in composting, what makes a plant fit for indoor life, and the human tendency to anthropomorphize our houseplants. At the top of the show, I dive into the strange cultural history of one of Jane’s favorite plants, the Aspidistra. (Released 11/15/18)
