Any Stupid Questions about... Farming?

Ever feel like you missed something important when it comes to the news? A fact, a detail, or an event that it feels like everyone else knows about, and now you'd look like a moron if you asked someone to explain? Well, here's a podcast that will ask those questions so you don't have to.

This week Danielle Ward asks Philip Clarke, executive editor of Farmers Weekly, to explain the farming industry. Danielle is joined by comedy writer and Guardian columnist Jack Bernhardt (The Lentil Sorters, The Amazing World of Gumball) and writer/producer Clarissa Maycock (Ray Moss: No Stone Unturned, Glitzy Ghost Hunter).

Questions asked and answered include:

  • Are farmers happy to be losing their EU subsidies?
  • What's the most profitable thing to farm?
  • Will we have to wash our chicken in chlorine?
  • Do farmers listen to the Beef & Dairy Network Podcast? if you've sort of been guessing the answers based on a gut feeling, why not listen and find out for sure? And then subscribe to stay equally informed about other issues, as we get around to them.

All our guests are on Twitter, so go and say hello - @jackbern23, @ClarissaDM and @farmersweekly, and Danielle is @captainward. The show itself now has a Twitter account: @AnyStupidQs.
