I know we all like to hear from the super stars of the industry right now but it is nice to hear interviews with other aspects of the industry. You will be surprised in what you learn.
A good example would be the pod cast with Mary Ellen Hickaman the founder of Future Fortunes the first futurity incentive programs for breeders 7 stallion owners. You get insight on the journey of Hickaman with the beginnings of Future Fortunes as well as her perspective on the new futurities such as the Pink Buckle.
Another interesting barrel racing podcast is the interview with Bendi Dunn. For those who are or who want to be breeders this interview is nice because it centers around the mare being the foundation of the breeding program of Bendi Dunn rather than a stallion which is typically done.
