Very entertaining!

Currently on episode 83 and am still entertained. Wish I would have discovered this podcast when it was current so I could have contributed to requested audience participation. I constantly laugh out loud while listening. Thanks!

Inspiration

I am only on episode 30 and I hope you consider coming back to the coopcast. You both have been an inspiration as I slowly start gardening and raising chickens (laying hens) for my family. Meat birds are planned for the future and I found a farm not too far from me that I can volunteer on processing day. I know I have a long way to go, but the thought of running out of episodes makes me want to “wallow”!
Thank you for sharing,
Kimberly

3 years since the last podcast was produced and I STILL cannot find a farming/gardening/homesteading podcast that I like as much as the Coopcast. Andy and Kelli were so pragmatic, entertaining, and just...real. I never felt like they had an agenda (well except Kelli’s agenda) so I felt like I was getting real farm wisdom. As a scientist, I loved their science based approach; applying theory to practice. As a nerd, I adored the Andy-isms. Still listen to old episodes on occasion because I can’t find anything like the Coopcast. Miss you guys but hope all is well.
