    David Docusen (?)

    David Docusen is one of the most important people in our lives. In this episode we talk to him about a major transition he's walking into as he steps down from the church he started ten years ago and into whatever is next. It's our hope that as you listen and identify with David's story of vocational wrestling, you'll open yourself to all the new things God might be trying to do.

    Brandon Sheard (Butcher)

    Brandon Sheard (Butcher)

    Brandon Sheard is a butcher that started Farmstead Meatsmith in September of 2010 on an island in Washington (state). 
    Farmstead Meatsmith proudly claims methods seeped in tradition. They believe the most beautiful goods and services are the results of extra labor, commitment to humble tools and resistance to the compromises of modernity.  In this way, Farmstead Meatsmith has indeed surrendered to harvesting animals with patience.
    The result is a fall into tradition where none of the animal is disposable, “trim” is exalted to the central place on the table and “off-cuts” become one thing you want on your plate.  They are driven by principle and guided by time-honored practices, and delighted to discover that it tastes better that way.
