Inspired

This was fantastic! I learned a lot about local food. The availability of produce is a topic that has been hard for us! Shopping for produce that is being shipped in from elsewhere doesn’t feel good when you live in this beautiful farming community. Now, I know how to really get my hands in produce that is grown practically in our back yard!! Also, half a hog, yes please!! Thanks Ladies, Keep up the great work!!!

mmmjjjjjssss ,

Well Produced and Clear Narrative Direction

The sound is clear and there is little fluctuation in the audio between the two hosts. There is a clear narrative that the two hosts , Jessica and Maureen, want to tell and the introduction makes that easy to follow. Some listeners outside the area might get lost in the unknown references and locations, but the emotion and honesty of talking about where someone calls home can track between someone in western Maryland to eastern Washington.

Pure Joy

Listening to the two of you talk and laugh makes me feel so joyful. And after living and working in Pa and Garrett Co. for 25+ years I I am still learning about places to visit and enjoy! Thanks to both of you for sharing the love!!
