Expansive Thoughts

Regardless of who is interviewed, new thoughts come to the surface. Vance has the ability to ask questions that provoke thought in me, as an audience member, making the podcast more of a group conversation rather than just listening to two people have an exchange.

I learn something every episode!

As a cattle rancher and symphony tuba player in Montana, I have trouble finding time to read and keep learning. I really enjoy listening to Vance’s podcasts in the tractor. I met him when he worked fo Monsanto and spoke at the MT State Farm bureau conference in Billings. Really enjoyed eating lunch with him and chatting. Wondered why he asked me so many thoughtful questions until he got up and proceeded to give an excellent speech! Keep it Vance, I really do learn something new every time I listen and continue to hone my understanding of the world around us!

Vance Crowe makes me think.

This is one of 2 podcasts I never skip. It’s like NPR used to be; in depth look at broad range of topics with an open mind. He asks the most intriguing questions. Drama free exploration of things I didn’t even know I need to know. 🙌
