Confessions of a Farm Wife: Episode 15

The podcast show hit the road! Here it is, live from the Women in Agriculture conference.

Friends, we took the show on the road!

A year ago, Emily Webel, DeAnna Thomas and I sat at the (most excellent) Women in Agriculture conference in the Quad Cities with two trains of thought: first, Ron Hanson shared excellent and simultaneously disturbing advice for our farm families. And second, we quietly chatted at our table about the possibility that Emily could be pregnant. And I said, "Don't worry, you are not pregnant!" And now she has twins. So don't ask me for advice.

I'm not sure what Emily and DeAnna were talking about here but I was clearly entertained. Photo by Cyndi Cook, Illinois Farm Bureau.

Fast forward a year and we were back, this time as the closing speakers at the conference. We recorded the podcast live and will share it here. We took questions from the audience at the end and while you can't hear exactly what they ask, we try to repeat it or in some cases, you can figure out what they asked based on our answers.

In the meantime, enjoy! A little something for your drive time, morning time or whenever you like to listen to podcasts. I'm a podcast fan while I get ready in the morning. And in the meantime, give this podcast a listen, either on the gizmo above or download the SoundCloud app on your phone or iPad.

And a final note: the conference made the news in the Quad Cities! Always good to have agriculture in a good news story.
