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
Really appreciate the care the clearly goes into producing these stories! Well done! Understandable and interesting stories for both the general public and folks in Ag!
This is a great way to learn about ag.
