What's your favorite garden show pod cast?

drew51 SE MI Z5b/6aJune 26, 2013

I have been listening to three, well four actually.
One is on WJR Detroit,with Dean Krauskopf. It is local. So info is more valuable to me.. But it is a tough listen. Podcasts can be found here:

The one's I like are all out of CA.Don Shor and Farmer Fred

Davis Garden Show with Don Shor broadcasts live
on KDRT 95.7 FM, Davis, California
Thursdays at noon.

Get Growing with Farmer Fred

The KFBK Garden Show with Farmer Fred

So do you have any you like?

I like the DWN videos on Youtube and the peach professor dude out of South Carolina...but i don't think either have anything up to date in the video dept.

To be honest, I can't remember the last time I listened to a podcast. Even during its heyday the content wasn't all that great to begin with. Youtube has some good content:

DWN Channel
Growing Your Greens
Garden Girl TV

The DWN channel is a winner. The other two are entertaining, but I don't agree with everything they recommend.

I like the DWN channel, but no videos in months, and I get 4 hours of podcast a week. Plus they have years and years online. So hundreds of hours. I like to listen while I'm gardening with an mp3 player and headphones. I'm actually listening while typing this message.
Plus the gardeners are very well informed, formally educated, and highly trained guests. I even heard a Tom Spellman interview with Farmer Fred. it was very cool!
He has been on numerous times.

Aight, way to stand your ground Drew. I have a long commute to work these days, so I will check some of this stuff out. Thanks for sharing!

Check out Farmer Fred first. I like his shows. None are perfect.
At least 2 shows with Spellman are on the site, Kinda hard to find. I tried posting URL, but it is too long and is trunicated if posted. I also like the shows with Debbie Flowers as guest. Pam Bone is good too!
I just wondered if any other decent shows are out there?
I wish i had a long commute!!
Don Shor is awesome but he often covers non fruit plants, but I grow a lot of them too! Lois Richter is co-host, and she is rather annoying.
But Don really knows his stuff!
Check out his blog

Here is a link that might be useful: Don's blog

OK, that helps. I tried The Garden Show Podcast this morning and had to kill it within about 15 minutes. I'd rather look directly into the sun than listen to that nonsense. I'm a big sports talk and local college music radio (KCSN 88.5) fan during my commute, but I'm willing to give Farmer Fred a shot. :)
