Conservation Chat, hosted by anthropologist Jacqueline Comito, is a podcast series that explores the relationship between conservation, soil, water, agriculture, and the people of Iowa. This is accomplished through thoughtful interviews with farmers and rural and urban residents about conservation and water quality in the state. Comito is the Director of Iowa Learning Farms, an Iowa State University Extension and Outreach program that has been building a culture of conservation statewide for over ten years.
