    Art Tanderup - Nebraska Farmer/Activist Update

    in Current Events

    Nebraska farmers and activists, often one and the same, are heading into the Fall with more determination than ever. They are working closely together to keep their land from being snatched up by the big oil & gas industry only to ship fossil fuels overseas where they will continue to have a devastating effect on the environment and climate.

    Talkupy welcomes Art Tanderup, Nebraska farmer and activist, back to the show at 9 pm ET on September 29, 2015. Art will give us an update on how the Pope's visit to the U.S. was received by Nebraska climate activists and what landowners are doing to prepare for their day in District Court to try and stop the KXL pipeline from crossing their properties. We'll also talk about a recent gathering of the Cowboy Indian Alliance to pick this year's sacred corn together at Art's farm.

    For more information on Art go to his Facebook page and Bold Nebraska's website. Please visit Talkupy.net, subscribe to Talkupy on Stitcher or iTunes and follow @Talkupy_Radio on Twitter.

    Nebraska Beer Blogger Nate Bell Discusses Craft Brewing in Nebraska

    in Travel

    The Nebraska Beer Blog, (www.nebraskabeerblog.com) discusses the state of craft brewing in Nebraska. These can include our wonderful craft brewers, taverns where craft beer is a specialty, dates and information on upcoming craft brew festivals, and even a listing of suppliers to home brewers.

    Nate Bell is an avid beer connoisseur, and he enthusiastically samples and critiques the upcoming and seasonal releases from our craft brewers.

    Since (in my opinion), craft brewing and great live music go hand in hand, we're also going to explore the great little pubs where you can experience both.

    You can also find the Nebraska Beer Blog on Facebook at Facebook.com/NebraskaBeerBlog.
