In this episode, Steve talks about mycotoxins and how protection from them varies around the world.

Highly recommend!

Hands-down my favorite podcast ever. I’ve used it as inspiration and as a resource throughout undergrad and as I start grad school. The podcast gives digestible information on a wide range of topics within the field of agriculture. I like how the information is presented and the theme song is great too!

Needle in a haystack

This podcast provides great information. I love the way it tells a commonsense story about agriculture. The one thing that drives me crazy about this podcast though is that the music after the introduction and end is generally about twice as loud as the rest of the podcast I can’t understand why you wouldn’t play the music at the same volume as the rest of the podcast
