Peter Byck and "Carbon Cowboys" ~ StoryCorps Connect

Wednesday, May 20, 2020 - “Carbon Cowboys'' is a new documentary series about farmers who have reduced carbon emissions with regenerative grazing. Filmmaker Peter Byck joins us. And with the pandemic, he reports that the farmers he profiled have seen increased sales, since they often market direct to consumers. Among the farmers featured is Gabe Brown of Browns Ranch near Bismarck. ~~~ Harvest Public Media reports on the prospect of disposing of hogs that can’t make it to market. ~~~ Public’s Tim Wollenzien of Prairie Public’s education division joins us to talk about StoryCorps Connect, which quickly developed new technology to continue the gathering of loved one interviews during the time of pandemic. The audio and a still photo from each interview goes into the archive at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, a part of American history for future generations. ~~~ Chuck Lura shares a Natural North Dakota essay about mink.
