Program Title: Winterizing Drafty Houses
Description: This episode features a return visit from Harrowsmith’s resident handyman from Manitoulin Island, Steve Maxwell. This time out Steve offers some good, and timely advice about how to keep your house warm in the winter.

Next up, another timely topic, bird seed. Host Wayne MacPhail visits with Barry Bogel, who runs a bulk seed business on equipment his grandfather would recognize. Ten pounds bags of seeds? That’s for punters.

Join Wayne MacPhail on a soundscape tour of Bogel Seeds, where a fifty pound bag of sunflower seeds is small potatoes and the grain silos and feeder tubes loom like benign giants.

Host(s): Wayne MacPhail
Featured Speakers/Guests: Steve Maxwell - Harrowsmith's resident handyman. Barry Bogel - Barry Bogel’s grandfather bought a farm in Flamborough, Ontario in 1874. Back then he raised bees. These days Barry grows plants for seed. Bird seed, mostly. He runs the operation out of a barn filled with ancient but admirable equipment some of which his grandfather would recognize.
