I recently had the chance to connect and be interviewed for an episode on the Shark Farmer Podcast hosted by Rob Sharkey!
Rob and and his wife Emily were such fun and gracious hosts! We covered so much including becoming a professional chef, to working on the US Culinary Olympic Team, applying for the 2022 Rose Parade (Pasadena, CA), to working on various cattle ranches and more! The Shark Farmer podcast is everything agriculture covering issues and challenges experienced by those working in farming, ranching and agriculture at large. It's provocative, asks real-world questions with real people working to put food on our tables and keep our bellies full! It's real-time information by people literally working in the field!
Meet Rob! Rob Sharkey, also known as The Shark Farmer, he's not just your average Illinois grain farmer. He’s a disruptor who is unwavering in his ability to directly address challenging topics that face the agricultural industry. He was easy to talk to and knew just enough about the culinary industry that we were able to talk "shop". It was a great conversation. He and Emily shared some of their fondest culinary memories dining in what was once one of our nation's most iconic restaurants, the late K-Pauls Louisiana Kitchen (New Orleans, LA).
Beyond my interview episode, Rob's provocative style parallels a story-based structure, which resonates with thousands of weekly, global listeners. So where can you find him?
