Informative

This podcast is so informative on such a variety of topics, not only on the ins and outs of (regen) farming, but the other policy issues that go along with it such as healthcare. It’s very well done and I look forward to listening to each new episode.

Great podcast !

As a non-farmer I appreciate the clear way the show discusses issues related to farming, soil health , and sustainability. Great science for non scientists!

Absolutely fantastic quality

I LOVE this podcast. The content is thorough and nuanced, and I love that the interviewees have room to talk and breathe and elaborate. Excellently edited and produced, and extremely educational.
