Ag Literacy is defined as having a basic knowledge of how food and fiber systems work. However, many consumers today do not understand these systems and processes. Brendan Black, host of the Talk Ag to Me podcast, is working to change that, serving as a translator between agriculture specialists and the general public. This episode, as part of a podcast exchange with Brendan’s show, we discuss his journey into agriculture, barriers to ag introduction and retention, strategies for communicating ag, and more.

Tune in to learn:

  • How Brendan found his way into agriculture
  • The “EASE”-y way to communicate science
  • Why making things relevant to your audience matters
  • What keeps people interested in agriculture
