17 - Lisa Kalal & Erin Burns - Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
In our Christmas Bumper Special and last show before Christmas, Andrew is down in the big smoke meeting with Lisa Kalal
In our Christmas Bumper Special and last show before Christmas, Andrew is down in the big smoke meeting with Lisa Kalal, who looks after clients at CME group mainly looking after hedgers, and Erin Burns, who heads up the commodity risk team at Tesco. They can't help but talk about agriculture post-Brexit and, with Erin and Lisa being Australian and American respectively, we get a slightly different perspective on deals, no-deals and referendums. We also get their take on women in agriculture and how important it could be to talk to your daughters about the markets to encourage more fantastic women in to the trading industry. Finally we hear about how their Christmases will be shaping up and Andrew tells us about his secret Santa.
The Dewing Grain market report for the week commencing 17/12/2018 gives Andrew’s latest insights into the markets. In Farmchat, renamed Santa Banter this week following a listener suggestion, Josh and Andrew discuss the Christmas bourse where lots of traders and merchants meet for a catch up over a few drinks and where the podcast was a big subject of conversation this year. They sample a couple of beers from Andrew's beer advent calendar - a Norwegian beer that Josh can't pronounce and Boundary American Pale Ale for Andrew.
We are pleased to announce that the winner of the Baker and Larner's hamper is Mark Thompson - known on Twitter as 'anorfolkfarmer' - how very appropriate!
