The Story of Agriculture Podcast: Episode 15 with Dr. Emily Buck, associate professor of agricultural communications at Ohio State University.
How do you balance being a mom, full time ag communication professor, part time freelance photographer, farmer and active advocate for agriculture? For Dr. Emily Buck, it is all about priorities. After her family and students, she finds time to prioritize her advocacy work because the health of the industry impacts her career as a professor, her family's farm and her community. Listen in on a conversation with Dr. Buck as she talks us through what it’s like to balance so many roles that are all important to her.
Other topics discussed in this episode include
- Research in agricultural communications including barriers to farmers’ adoption of social media, how reporters cover agriculture and how images impact perceptions of agriculture.
- Keeping up on changing tools and strategies in communications
- Encouraging students to study abroad and pursue internships beyond the minimum requirements of their program
