Season two of Penn State University Extension’s podcast called “Farm Stress Real Talk” is now available. The podcast focuses on supporting farmers, farm families, and workers in the commercial agriculture industry who are experiencing stress.
During the program, the PSU extension farm stress team conducts informal educational conversations with a diverse range of educators, Penn State faculty members, and agricultural professionals. These interviews are designed to give farmers practical strategies to balance farm responsibilities with their own well-being. Dairy extension educator Ginger Fenton says the podcasts are a convenient resource.
“We know farmers are busy, so we thought a podcast with targeted, practical information would be a good way to reach them,” she says. “Farmers can listen to the podcast while doing chores or operating machinery.”
Season two episodes will focus on strategies to address stress proactively. The second season of the podcast is available on the Penn State Extension website.
