1. Rock & Roll Farmin‪g‬

Editors’ name is Will Evans and he is the host of Rock & Roll Farming Podcast. He’s also a farmer, husband, and father to 4 little girls, and his family has been farming in Wales for hundreds of years. He is in partnership with the farm with his Mum and Dad, and they produce beef cattle, arable crops, and free-range eggs. Every week on the podcast he interviews farmers and people in the agricultural industry with the idea of showing off some of the incredible characters involved. They are people with work ethic, drive, entrepreneurship, and communication skills, and I love talking to them to learn more about their lives and stories.

British farming is about many things. World-renowned landscapes. Ground-breaking innovation and technology. Incredible and varied livestock. But mostly it’s about people, the people who get up early in the morning and put their hearts and souls into what they do every single day. And that’s why he started this podcast. To show that off to those who may want to learn a bit more about the people that produce the food that they eat.

So check it out and let him know what you think folks.

With the hog crash of ‘98 in the rearview mirror, a turn-key outfitting business thriving, and a handful of acres demanding more time than is warranted, the only logical step was to launch a necessary – yet stupendously groundbreaking – podcast.

His provocative style parallels a story-based structure, which resonates with thousands of weekly, global listeners. Juxtapose his rough-around-the-edges persona with an unmatched ability to listen and relate to those spanning generations, time zones, and the rural/urban divide, and you’ve found the formula for an under-the-radar and out-of-the-box communicator.

And, he’s just getting started.

As a What the Farm Podcast co-host and co-founder of the Farm and Rural Ag Network, Rob is changing new media. This year, Rob is elevating his no-nonsense antics from the field to the SiriusXM waves as he joins Rural Radio. This is either their strongest move to-date, or their biggest mistake.
