Recorded live in downtown Albuquerque, the latest episode of Blue Corn Live focuses on local farmers and issues like climate change.

Want to hear local farmers talk about some of the challenges they face, including when it comes to climate change?

On the latest episode of Blue Corn Live, a new podcast exploring food in New Mexico, farmers in the Albuquerque area talk about how they’re dealing with—and anticipating—the impacts of climate change.

For farmers, the issue poses even more challenges than just worrying about water supplies. They have to figure out which crops will thrive and deal with longer pest seasons.

In this new episode of the podcast, local reporter Sarah Gustavus talks with Tomas Apodaca from East Mountain Organic Farms, Sean Ludden from Rio Grande Community Farm, Ric Murphy from Sol Harvest, and Dory Wegryzn from Red Tractor Farm.

Blue Corn Live is a new project from Gustavus and Alex Curtas. To listen to that latest episode, visit: https://bluecornlive.com/2016/04/30/listen-meet-your-farmers/
