What we talk about in the program is mostly the whole idea of trying to bridge the gap between rural and urban communities. It is something we’ve worked on throughout our careers. We both think the divide is wider than ever. Trent has some good ideas on why this is and how ineffective some of the methods that have been tried are. We also ramble around on some other topics like Impossible Foods and virtual events.
We don’t talk about the movie, The Stand at Paxton County, now on Netflix, but I have to mention it here. I didn’t know about Trent’s role in the movie. I watched it last night though and I highly recommend it. Here’s what the story is about – “A military veteran comes home to find her father harassed by a sheriff intent on confiscating the livestock on their ranch under shady pretenses.” Trent plays a neighbor farmer named Tom Gardner. If you know Trent you won’t be surprised that he does a great job acting. I wonder when his next movie will come out. The photo is one from the production. By the way, the Executive Director is Forrest Lucas, Lucas Oil founder, president/CEO and also founder of Protect the Harvest.
