Episode 78 of Boss Hog of Liberty is now available!

Jeremiah Morrell and Dakota Davis are joined by co-host Chase Peyton this week. Our featured guest is Donya Lester, recently retired from the Purdue College of Agriculture as the Director of Public Engagement and the Executive Director of Purdue University College of Agriculture’s Alumni Association.

Donya explains how Purdue University fits in as a land grand university, and the way that integrates into our daily lives, with regard to research and getting that research into our local communities. Absolutely fascinating conversation, ranging from food security, crop research, opioid addiction and much more.

Additionally, we explore the new sidewalks in southern New Castle, are they a giant waste, or a great thing? We talk about a potential new movie theatre in our community. Finally we learn about Chase’s trip to Chicago and if he followed Jeremiah & Dakota’s advice.
