The NY Beef Banter: podcast will be hosted by Nicole Rodriguez, a Registered Dietitian and NYBC board member. Nicole will guide a variety of guests and topics in monthly episodes that feature industry enthusiasts, farmers, and industry experts. The podcasts are geared to engage interested consumers in the reality of food production while also addressing topics important to beef producers allowing for a producer and consumer connection during the podcast “banter”.
