Agronomy Geeks, Ep 10: If it's fun, it gets done — Jay Whetter on interactive learning

What happens when you put two past colleagues with a shared passion for agronomy extension, quizzes, and talking into headsets together, then hit record? You get 20 minutes of banter about canola, of course, but also calling a baseball game, why faba beans need more love, six-year crop budgets, and over-sized banana statues. True story.

On this episode of Agronomy Geeks, host Lyndsey Smith is joined by Canola Council of Canada communications manager Jay Whetter, to talk about all things learning, the sweet smell of cabbage, canola pests, and so much more. Listen now, or download for off-line listening!

(Editor’s note: Lyndsey flubs and says there have been six episodes — in fact, this is the 10th. It’s been six months since the last episode, however. Also, it would seem that Jay’s tear-inducing laughter was so quiet the mic did not pick it up. Trust us, there were tears.)
