    I was listening to the program and went to the site and grabbed it, I don't know why you couldn't send the link around to anyone! That's the sort of thing they love. The podcast to the actual broadcast will be available in a bit, and you can send THAT around too I'm sure, as long as it's the whole link, not some scrap of it. I have to imagine it's good for the program for people to know that there's interesting things there. Here's a more direct link too.. (I think)

    That is awesome. I think someone from BYC was on NPR talking about chickens/raising chickens last year. Too bad I dont know what program they were on or how to reference it.

    It's not my permission to give!! The radio station is the one in charge!!! I do believe however that as long as you give full credit to the station by pasting the entire link, NPR wouldn't 'squawk'. I think that's the only thing needed. I could be wrong however!!!

    here is a another link to a bio I found about that Jennifer Blecha person. Hers is about the 23rd or so down, or 10th up from the bottom.

    http://growurban.org/presenters.shtml THIS one is for information only! I'm sure posting parts of THIS one would be wrong! We don't know if info for her has changed or if that 'growurban' group is legit!!! though, I think they are, it's only my opinion!!! and I'm a big ol' NOBODY!!
