    Awesome. I like the show very much. The khsu website doesn’t have enough info about you all – glad you have the blog so we can learn more and listen to all your shows!
    Thanks for your hard work.

      Hi Kate — thanks for the encouragement! I need to do more about getting the blog site out there. I’m not much of a writer, I mainly am using it to archive the radio shows. I will be posting 5 more shows soon — thanks! Jennifer

    Jennifer, I just wanted to give you a big thank you! Since I took your bread-making class at the Co-op, I’ve become competent enough to supply The Wine Spot with two loaves a week for their bar nibbles and potluck evenings. Best implementation so far – bacon bread!

    Bring back your food historian. Jerry Rohde. We could listen to that gentleman for a long while. He makes it all come alive. We have sent your blogs to our far flung friends who really are enjoying your work. thanks!

    Just caught the tail end of your interview with “bean guy” friday. What is his name? Name of farm?
    I live in Crescent City and bought his beans at Arcata Farmers Mkt. Want to get more.
    Great program…really great. Thank you for Food For Thought.

    Hi Jennifer!

    Hey, Jennifer: If you’d ever like to do a program on Food Waste, we’re all over it at Zero Waste Humboldt. It is a national and local disgrace. Over a third of all waste disposed in Humboldt is compostable food scraps. We can talk solutions. There are 5 new California laws. Lots to do for prevention strategies. Produces landfill methane, so major contributor to climate change. contact@zerowastehumboldt.org

    Hi Jennifer! I took the master food preserver’s bread making class and it was wonderful. In june 2012 you interviewed my father who has since passed and I was wondering if there was a way for me to download the audio from those shows? Thank you!
