Happy Leap Day! February 29 only comes around once every four years, so get out there and enjoy it.

Today, From Scratch Club takes the leap (heh) into the wonderful world of podcasting! That’s right: you can now read the blog, plan for an FSC Swappers food swap and mark your calendars to visit us at our next community outreach event all while listening to the From Scratch Club podcast!

This podcast has been a long time coming. Over a year ago, Christina & Alexis put an FSC podcast on their wish list and now on this auspicious and memorable day, February 29, it’s live. A few months ago, Christina and I renewed the dream and decided to take the plunge. We planned and brainstormed and fretted and drank hot toddies, hoping that we weren’t completely crazy for thinking maybe, just maybe, we could whisper our sweet nothings about food and farming and swapping in your ears. The entire experience of recording and editing was brand new to us but we are getting the hang of it. I’m still working on not cringing when I listen to myself talk and, I’m happy to report, it is somehow getting easier.  We are obsessed with meeting and interviewing as many peeps as we can so that we can inspire, educate, share, giggle and chit chat with you, with our ever-growing FSC community.

Our hearts are bursting with nervousness and excitement. We are thrilled to present to you the first-ever From Scratch Club podcast!

Listen to Episode 01 right on this every post!

Let us know what you’d like to hear! Is there someone that we must talk to and interview? Know of an event that you think we should cover? Do you have a topic that you are dying to know more about? Please, let us know. We are honored that this humble little podcast might take up residence on your iPod or laptop and we are excited to grow and improve with every episode. We hope this podcast will let you learn a little more about us, the wild and crazy ladies of FSC, but more importantly we hope this podcast lets us learn a lot about all of you. You homesteaders, cooks, bakers, gardeners, tiny apartment dwellers, full-scale farmers, foodies, dinner party hosts, dinner party guests, townhome owners, policy advocates, protesters, changemakers, food gurus, etc. We want to meet you and tell the world about you. Let’s chat.

A huge thank you to everyone here at FSC, to our first interview guest Nicole Taylor of the Heritage Radio Network show “Hot Grease”, to NOFA-NY for giving us the opportunity to attend their conference and interview tons of interesting people, to our FSC Swappers for letting us chase them around with a microphone and for my partner-in-crime at home who helped me learn how to edit, made dinner while I stared at the computer and coaxed me to bed after hours of recording and mixing.

    I know this is not the point, but I totally have to say it… I loved that you compared nutritional yeast to fish food. Cracked me right up! That’s so accurate.
