Howdy! In this week’s Make Me Care, we’re taking a slightly different tack. Instead of interviewing another writer, I’m talking to my ranching father about the food movement and sustainability. I recently wrote a piece about why foodies and mid-size farmers need to learn to get along. It’s clear my dad and I both already care — but can we find common ground? We weather shoddy rural internet and rascally barn cats to find out. Watch the video now!

On Monday, I’m publishing a broader essay on our ranch and what I found out from talking to my pops. (The actual interview ran an hour. Someone buy the editor all of the beers.) Stay tuned!
