When your guest has just written a book that includes tips for butchering a pig, grooming your beard, and tying knots with pointy sticks (a.k.a knitting), you obviously have a lot to learn from them. Kurt Reighley is the author of United States of Americana, a modern-day Farmer’s Almanac, a field guy to the American Roots movement. Finally, Marty has someone to grill (good choice of verb) about his recent fascination with urban chicken coops, one of the sections in the book. What is the biggest challenge in raising chickens in the city? Find out on today’s show.
Plus Marty, Jodi and Kurt blatantly stereotype a disturbingly violent twenty-something from last weekend’s Rally to Restore sanity in DC.
