Welcome to The Membership, a podcast inspired by the life and work of Wendell Berry, the Kentucky farmer, poet, novelist, essayist, activist, and thinker.
The goal of The Membership is to curate great conversations that contribute to the health of the land and the health of our communities.
Join hosts Jason Hardy, John Pattison, and Tim Wasem as they discuss Berry's life and writings, and interview other folks -- farmers and makers, writers and artists, practitioners of all kinds -- who are responding to Wendell Berry's writings in their own places.
Jason Hardy and John Pattison interview Charlie Peacock, the 4x Grammy Award-winning, multi-format jazz and pop recording artist, composer, and record producer.
Jason, John, and Tim discuss two short stories: “Fly Away, Breath” and “The Hurt Man.”
John interviews Mary Berry, the Director of The Berry Center, and Dr. Leah Bayens, Director of the Berry Farming Program.
