All About the Pod Podcast
The University of Georgia Peanut Team presents All About the Pod, a reoccurring podcast for peanut producers, industry partners, and anyone interested in learning about science-backed peanut production.
The goal of this podcast is to educate others about up-to-date problems our researchers see in the field. All About the Pod will feature extension specialists, research faculty, graduate students, extension agents, industry allies, and growers.
