Description

Rural agricultural environmentalism, or something like that. Two guys living in the country and trying to run small, weird ag businesses and figure it all out. We talk about the realities of farming and food behind all the noise. Also, Georgia history, the South, football, amateur herpetology, all things weird and wonderful. The standard stuff.

RIP Burt, Flannery, Duane and Greg, Levon, Otis, Aretha, Harry Crews, James Dickey, grandmother and grandaddy, and so on and so on. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/streakoflean/support

Early reviews of this episode are in, and critics are raving: “So lo-fi it was almost incomprehensible, but I loved every minute of it.” The De Soto Gazette-Herald calls it, “A surprisingly pleasant hour considering so little preparation went into the final product.” Coop walks across town while trying out new audio equipment that makes him sound underwater. Brandon is following his normal route, speeding away from cellular signals and into the lost coastal backwoods. Together they weave experimental sonic textures about ANTIFA, the pitiful things that farmers kill accidentally, littering and Southerners’ inability to embrace environmentalism, and new developments at Farm’D. We made this one short; so when it stops, it just sort of stops.  Episode sponsored by Lang’s Marina Restaurant in St. Marys (@langsrestaurant).  Please smash that five-star rating, and we appreciate y’all for listening. Website is live.  Our gallery of Georgia courthouses is up.  Websites:  www.streakofleanpod.com  www.thegrassrootsfarm.com  www.cooperagriculture.com  Social media accounts:  Streak of Lean Instagram — @streakoflean  Grassroots Farms Instagram — @grassrootsfarmsga  Grassroots Farms Twitter — @GApasturedbirds Cooper Ag Services  Instagram — @cooper_ag_services--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/streakoflean/support
Georgia Summer

Georgia Summer

2019-08-0601:28:33

We here! We didn't give up the podcast game, just got hella busy over the summer. The kind of busy where you're wore-ass out but can't remember what you accomplished. Brandon starts us back with discussing his pesky neighbors, Theresa and Daryl, and their complaints about his dogs. Theresa and Daryl, UGH. Then we get down to some solid farm talk, including: feral swine damage in South Georgia, USDA grants and local food systems investment, the inevitable trash and worn-out equipment that accumulate on every farm ("shame piles"), and sundry other topics along the way. Authentic outdoor sounds, too. Please smash that five-star rating, and we appreciate y’all for listening. Website is live.

What is this episode about? What is truth? Can we ever really know another person? We don't talk about none of that. Instead, we cover laughable Yankee tourist traps (we see you, Peach World), vague memories of Midway and the lost Sunbury Road, the cruel turn of weather in Georgia, the possible effects from African Swine Fever’s rampage through China and Southeast Asia, human doodoo, and the salubrious possibilities of human doodoo transfer. Plus, there’s the standard drivel, whatnot, clatter, and noise.

Wyatt Williams joins us all the way from Indonesia to talk food writing, burnout, the perfect farm, marketing, and American meat. But before that we have a long discussion about beginning farmers, the disappearance of livestock processing, and food safety. We decry the misguided war by the government against microorganisms, reevaluate science, and contemplate eating a raw chicken. Coop looks forward to upcoming events. Brandon has news about the expansion of his multimedia empire on the coast. A long episode for a good ride. Audio could be better. C'est la vie. Authentically lo-fi is our brand. Read more about Wyatt at his tumblr (https://wyattwilliams.tumblr.com/). Please smash that five-star rating, and we appreciate y’all for listening. Website is live.

Our first guest! We enjoy the honor and privilege of keeping company with Phil Spencer, the Community Manager at Farm’d. A buying and distribution platform for local food, Farm’d facilitates linkages between restaurants and farmers. What they’re pulling off sounds so good, it makes one incredulous. We think you'll really like Phil and hearing about the job he's doing to help Georgia farmers get their product to market. Plus, we have scintillating intro talk, in which we cover the weather, drowned trucks, rural hospitals, pica, annoying turns of phrase, driving a tractor in your skivvies, cussing, and getting punk’d.

Finally, we’re back at our game of talking Georgia deep geography and trying on our curmudgeon hats. We talk about the dynamic physical and social upheaval in the Atlanta suburbs over the past 30 years — with a focus on Gwinnett County. Along the way we cover our dreams of writing, Flagpole magazine, bats, and sundry other things. Recordings from the Georgia Organics Conference close the show.

Back to a Rough January

Back to a Rough January

We talk about how much January sucked. Along the way, we cover the Durdens again, pod bizness, the one and only Waverly Minit Mart, Coop’s brother, Goodie Mob, late night cravings, the intangibility of fathers’ love, death, the Georgia Organics conference, small farmers, and more. This is probably our best episode yet. Lots of good truck sounds. A longer ride but it’s smooth and easy.

The finale of Grassroots Farms' journey to the land of milk and honey — the Georgia coast. As the deal with the chicken distributor fizzles, a mysterious figure appears offering untold riches in the hog business. An old friend comes to the farm for mutual succor. Fame and fortune again seem within reach. But is this the devil's business, or is it ultimate providence? Plus, interstate rest area architecture, O.J. Simpson, the government shutdown, the Farm Bill, DIY veterinary medicine, a dramatic reading from James Dickey's Deliverance, etc. Long, vulgar, troubled with inconsistent volume levels — This is the episode that wins the Poddie! Seriously. No, seriously. Lots of expletives, y'all. Don't say we didn't warn you. Please smash that five-star rating, and we appreciate y’all for listening. Website is finally up!

Part the Second: We follow our plucky hero through the next stage of his journey to small farm glory. Good fortune strikes as a corporate distributor comes calling for that local yardbird. Brandon moves the flock and fam from their suburban homestead to the wide-open pastures of Southeast Georgia (SOUEGA — God's country, per the Bird Mane). Will this path lead to untold riches as foretold in the prophecy? How can one man compete with the scale and efficiencies of Big Chicken? Find out in this week's episode!
