This week on the podcast we’re in Gridley, California (pop. 6,937) with third generation rice farmer Matthew Sligar. Matthew started Rice Farming TV to help promote and educate people on the California rice industry through weekly videos on YouTube, and he’s gained quite a following. He’s talking all things rice farming and how his videos have opened up some great opportunities.
This week we're bringing you a fascinating conversation with Linc Kroeger of Pillar Technology and The Forge in Des Moines, Iowa about bringing tech jobs to rural communities.
