New Canning Podcast - LivingHomegrown.com

I love podcasts.

And for many years, I have wanted to produce my own podcast that:

  • Offered weekly episodes for the food crafter/homesteader on the go
  • Showcased interviews of top-notch experts
  • Included mini-lessons in preserving & homesteading

But I had to carve out the time to learn to record, edit and deliver it in a really high-value way. And I had to do this between…you know…producing a PBS TV show and being a mom. Ha!

Well, it took me a bit of time to learn all the equipment and pull it all together. But I am very excited to say that I’ve done it!

I hope you love it.
