    • Presenents (steam here, or whoever you listen to podcasts): From the farm financial crisis of the 1980s (Season 1, Escaping 1980) to the future of carbon markets (Season 2, Corn Saves America) and where the money farmers borrow comes from (Season 3, Nothing Borrowed Nothing Gained) join us as we size-up agricultural issues through the lens of history and economics to consider what we can learn and how to think about the challenges faced today and in the future.
    • Ag Interrupted (steam here, or whoever you listen to podcasts): Sarah Mock, Brent Gloy, and David Widmar return to the intersection of agriculture, history, and economics to share the stories and business adventures you’ve never heard. Each episode will take you back to a specific date in history where the team will unpack how chaotic, unsettled, and flat-out bizarre history was. Learn how these random but relevant events have shaped the world we know today and the key lessons for managers and business leaders.
