Lubben talks ag economy, future with Faculty 101


Welcome to Faculty 101, a podcast that offers a listen into the pursuits and perspectives of Husker faculty.

Listen: Faculty 101 with Brad Lubben

With the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting normal routines and shifting so many personnel and activities off campus, host Mary Jane Bruce is adapting with a temporary spinoff named Faculty 101: Five Things. True to its name, each episode will ask a faculty member to address five aspects or questions related to a specific topic.

In the latest episode, Bruce calls on the expertise of Brad Lubben, policy specialist and extension associate professor of agricultural economics. Lubben outlines how the pandemic has affected the ag economy, talks about the resources being made available to farmers and ranchers, and discusses how the pandemic may accelerate certain ongoing shifts within the industry.

Faculty 101 episodes will be featured here on Nebraska Today, but you can also subscribe via iTunes and Stitcher. Additional podcast delivery systems will be announced as they come online.
