It’s been a few years since Dairy Carrie and I sat down with a pitcher (or a few) of Spotted Cow beer in the back room of the Crawfish Junction bar in Milford, Wisconsin and recorded several episodes for my podcast (formerly known as Agriculture Proud). And, of course, we titled the series Over A Beer, because who doesn’t like to sit down with their best friends for great conversations over a beer?!? We covered a ton of topics in the world of agriculture advocacy. You can find those episode show notes here.
And if you haven’t already, you should subscribe to my podcast to listen to all 29 previous episodes.
I recently made a trip back to Wisconsin for the holidays, so we decided it was about time for another round. Carrie and I caught up on a few topics and over the next four weeks, we’ll be sharing those podcast episodes.
In classic Wisconsin style, Carrie made sure my day started with a Rumchata coffee + a breakfast beer before we made it to the bar (hey… it was vacation) so I think you’ll enjoy some good, open conversations over a beer.
Podcast Episode 30 – The First Round
In today’s first round, also known as episode 30 of the Beef Runner podcast, Carrie and I briefly catch up on life events over the past two years.
- Carrie and her husband Patrick had a second son, Ben (my godson)
- Carrie discusses the challenges of the dairy industry as milk prices have dropped and growing seasons have been difficult
- I’ve moved to Colorado, started a new job, bought a house and cannot stop running
Fun fact: Carrie and I recently realized we joined Twitter (@DairyCarrie and @BeefRunner) on the same day 10 years ago. We didn’t know each other then, but she now refers to me as her little brother she never asked for. And I do my best to live up to those expectations.
I hope you enjoy this episode of the Beef Runner podcast. Check out all my episodes at anchor.fm/BeefRunner.
