ZimmCast 664 – Beltwide & Biodiesel Conferences

Chuck Zimmerman

Hello and welcome to the ZimmCast.

In this week’s program we’ll hear interviews from the Beltwide and Biodiesel conferences that took place virtually this month. You can find a lot more interviews and session audio from these events in our virtual newsrooms for them on AgNewsWire.com.

Before sharing a couple of interviews that Cindy and I did I just wanted to make a comment on the significant growth of podcasting I’m seeing in the agricultural world. This isn’t just limited to agriculture though. Organizational and user and influencer produced content is everywhere. It is a good thing but it also provides people with more and more options of what they are going to listen to or watch in the limited time they have. This includes virtual events and webinars. I just saw that Apple is going to be starting their own podcast service to compete with Spotify. We’ll be keeping our eye on that as it develops. Of course, the Apple Podcast app has been around a long time. But it just allows you to subscribe to podcasts. This new service will be more about working with partners for podcast offerings. It is going to be an interesting year as what was new media isn’t new anymore.

So, let’s get a taste of the Beltwide Cotton Conferences and the National Biodiesel Conference and Expo and I’ll start with Dr. Gary Adams, National Cotton Council President and CEO, as Cindy talks with him about how the virtual Beltwide event went.

Next up I talk with Chad Stone, Renewable Energy Group VP and Chairman of the National Biodiesel Board.
