[Podcast] Chickpeas, raising rodeo rough stock and Grandpa’s medical cures

Season 1, Episode 9

Here’s a breakdown of the articles we’ve featured in this podcast episode:

  1. Chickpeas (or garbanzo beans) are an annual legume grown in many parts of the world. These small beans are a key ingredient in hummus, salads, soups, stews, curry and other meal products. Growers in Northern Idaho and the Pullman, Washington area were the first to create this market in the U.S. These pioneering companies and growers share their story.
  2. A lot of folks refer to horses as “hay burners,” which they are. But sometimes horses really do earn their keep in ranch work or on show circuits. Not many horses, however, earn their way onto a rodeo bucking string. This article highlights an Idaho rough-stock producer and gives us a little more insight into this end of the industry.
  3. You may have heard someone quip, “The cure was worse than the disease.” Never was that more true than in Michele Coleman’s childhood. In her “Wipe your feet” column, Michele shares the horrors of relying on Grandpa’s medical philosophy, skills and medicine cabinet.
