    We don’t talk about policy a lot on the podcast because it doesn’t seem to be so investable, but it does seem absolutely fundamental because if a subsidy scheme like the Farm Bill or the Common Agriculture Policy in Europe (CAP) or chemical fossil fuel fertiliser subsidies in many places makes the life of regenerative farmers more difficult, it means it is much more difficult to invest in the space and move it forward.

JFelzz ,

A finance program I can enjoy!

I am not in the field of finance, but I find this podcast incredibly illuminating and enjoyable. I love the insight into how we can bring the world of finance together with the world every generation, conservation, and climate medication and adaptation.I particularly appreciate that the host is not afraid to bring in considerationsThat are typically not spoken of in the world of finance, such asHow to protect the rights and welfare of the folks who live on the land, how to include economic development in landscape-level projects, and how to “right-size” the entire system of returns on capital investment.

A learning curve we all need to climb

Great guests, great questions, super informative.

DD Burlin ,

Informative

Pretty good podcast generally, and very good if you really want to think about how $$ can support regenerative ag. Sometimes the sound quality of the interviewees is not great, and I’d love to hear more on how these investments might actually return capital to investors. Exploring the details of financial models that have worked, and not worked, in a deeper way might move us all along that much quicker.
