What a great laugh.

Every time I see the notification pop up that a podcast has arrived I get excited as I know I’m going to have an hour of informative and slightly nonsensical agricultural information.

Wish Andrew would put on a thicker accent, it’s so sexy.

Most entertaining and informative ag pod on the air.

Always look forward to this pod for up to date, relevant agricultural information…. Along with a good laugh.

Volumes

Good content,
but when listening to in the tractor difficult to hear play both as the volume of the presenters is louder for one than the other so it’s too loud in the cab for one person and too quiet for the other
