Educational and Interesting
I enjoy the way Harold presents the information. It’s not just a bunch of facts, but instead full of personal stories and conversation. Haven’t listened to many episodes, but I’m looking forward to more!
So I’m 8 years old and I’m wondering if you know a good workout if you live on a homestead?P.S I love working out.
Wide variety of topics
I have been able to find every homesteading topic I’ve looked for, so far. Now I’m starting at the beginning and listening to all episodes. I suspect all will be interesting and very informative whether they fit with my program or not.
I’m very impressed, recommend this podcast heartily.
