Join Travis and David each week as they discuss all things meat. Travis is a butcher with a strong background in slaughter and retail, as well as sausage and charcuterie production. David is a small-scale intensive farmer; he manages rotationally grazed livestock and butchers them for direct-to consumer-sale. He’s also worked in retail meats and as a chef. They’ve both worked alone on mobile slaughter units, and they both like Waylon Jennings.
