 Do you love Old Fashion Tools, Fluffy Butts and general Maker Shop Talk? 

If so, join Tamara Robertson (Mythbusters, Maker ScienceSeekers of Science) as she kicks off with a Tech Talk about Dividers then sits down with Farmer, Builder and Educator Anne of All Trades.

Anne, known as Anne of All Trades, is a farmer, builder, and educator intent on preserving disappearing life skills.  10 years ago, with very little prior knowledge of farming or building things, she set out on a journey to become more involved in every aspect of her life, to get out of the tech industry, to leave the city, and to encourage folks to join her in the pursuit of something better.  Now she and her husband Adam live on acreage in Nashville, TN where she's raising and selling dairy, beef, eggs, building heirloom quality furniture, and has made a career teaching people disappearing life skills.  When we're not in the middle of a pandemic, Anne travels the country teaching about all kinds of things from regenerative farming to woodworking to building small businesses to growing a social media following.  She's currently building a school on their farm in TN where she'll do more of the same both in person and online.

Topics they cover include (but are surely not limited to):
- Traditional Making
- Cultural Heritage Sites
- Popular Grove Plantation
- Self Sufficient Homesteads
- Driving Live Stock across State Lines
- Learning Versus Using Skills
