Planthropology

Planthropology

If you're on this planet, plants have a HUGE impact on your life. Whether you're a vegan, a carnivore, or somewhere in between, plants are the basis of the food you eat, the clothes your wear, and the air you breathe. We don't intend just to teach you plant facts (though we'll do plenty of that), but to give you some insight into the cool people who work with them. From the soil to the plate to the climate, dive into the anthropology of plants (get it?) and learn a little more about why you should care about the world around you from the people who care about it the most....

What's up plant people? I'm not sure I've ever talked to another guest who's done so many different and incredible things before they turned 30. Tyler Froberg is the head farmer at Hope Farms in Houston, TX. He runs the farm, but also works with programs for kids, veterans, and everyone in between. He's really done a little bit of everything and is such an inspiring guy. I'm so glad I finally got to connect ...

What's up, Plant People?? Listen, there are a lot of good things for you and one of those things is for you to not die lost in the woods. To help make sure that wish comes true, my friend Paul Csomo from the Varmints Podcast came on the show for today's episode to tell you some things he's learned from his hobby of studying wilderness survival. We also talk a lot about starting a podcast, listening to podcasts, and abou...

Hey Plant People! Welcome back for the first new episode of 2021! I'm trying out some new formatting stuff, but I'm stoked about today's episode! I talked with Rachel Boyd, who's a Jazz musician, radio producer for KTTZ (the Texas Tech University station and local public media affiliate), and the host of the brand new In The Grow podcast. We talk about music, life, and the radical act that is growing your own food. ...

Hey there, Plant People! This is a very special bonus episode because it includes a whole bunch of my good podcast friends! I'm in a little (ok, not THAT little) group of podcasters who talk about science and academia on their shows, and we all thought it would be fun to do a live-streamed wrap up of 2020. This is the audio recording of that live stream which took place a couple of days ago. It's fun and encouraging we spen...

This isn't the episode that was supposed to come out today, but it was the one I felt like I needed to do. I graduate on Friday, and recorded this (longer than intended) piece about my experience through my PhD and where I go from here. I hope you get something out of it! It was certainly therapeutic for me to record.

I hope everyone (in the US) had a lovely Thanksgiving and the rest of you wonderful people had a great Thursday! In my family, we've always put up our Christmas decorations the day or weekend after Thanksgiving. I thought it would be fun to do a short episode about Christmas trees so you'd have something to listen to in case you're like us! I discuss origins of the tradition as well as pros and cons of different types o...

Happy whatever month it is, everyone! Really, time is mostly meaningless these days. What's not meaningless, however, is this wonderful episode with Beth Nichols of Fronds
With Benefits. Beth is an absolute delight of a human being and a brilliant plant scientist. She's just finishing up her PhD in computational plant science, has spent time as a biology teacher, is a talented artist, and really just so much fun to talk to....

Well hey there, I started a new podcast! I wanted to be a part of #NaPodPoMo for November, where podcasters are posting content every day, but it didn't fit well with Planthropology. Because of that, The Plant Prof was born! Tune in every day in November, then weekly after that, for plant facts, garden tips and tricks, answers to your questions, and whatever else pops into my head! Episodes will be bite sized and never more tha...

Happy October, Plant People! Today's episode is a lot of fun, but a little bit different. I sat down with Chris and Dylan from Pecan Ridge to talk about life and business! The company is VERY involved in the local community and is all about so many different plant-loving people. The grow pecans, they showcase local creators, they support farmers markets, and they're just genuinely good guys!
