Thankfully It’s not every child who is unfortunate enough to witness the total destruction of their backyard playground, but for Beards On co-founder James Stanton-Cooke, the experience, quite understandably left a lasting impression.

In this episode of MHP, this mild mannered, deeply committed environmentalist discusses that difficult story. He also chats about his almost career in baseball and being grouped in South America. He talks about magical snakes and menacing salmonella and explains how sometimes the best conversations start when your half cut.

James Stanton-Cooke is an Environmental campaigner and Sydney Coordinator for Lock the Gate Alliance. He is also the co-founder of Beards On, a Not For Profit environmental organisation, whose goal is to encourage men to grow a beard and start a conversation about conservation. As a Rainforest Trust Australia partner, Beards On has so far been able to help conserve over 18 million acres of forest through its numerous fundraising campaigns including Half Cut, a fun conversation starting initiative for men to grow then shave half their beard. A celebration of this achievement will be held at 4 Pines Brewery, in Brookvale, NSW on August 31st.

Murder in Oregon
Murder in Oregon
In January of 1989 the director of Oregon’s Department of Corrections, Michael Francke, was brutally stabbed to death outside his office in Salem. The murder was quickly ruled a “car burglary gone wrong” and pinned on a low-level drug dealer named Frank Gable, a man who Francke's own brother, Kevin, along with storied Oregon reporter Phil Stanford, believe has been wrongfully imprisoned for nearly 30 years. They believe Francke had uncovered a trail of corruption in the prison system— one that led to the top of Oregon’s political establishment. Murder In Oregon follows the two men on a decades-long journey, bordering on obsession, into Oregon’s drug and crime-infested underworld to answer one question: Who really killed Michael Francke?
