I had the pleasure to chat with a couple of buddies of mine from Oklahoma. Fletcher and Dax Inman are two brothers that are following in their parents footsteps in terms of making a name for themselves in the show pig industry. We dug a little into their the Holy Smoke sale and even more importantly, turtle racing. These guys are so fun and I look forward to seeing them soon.

Hi, I'm Joe!

I'm 11 years old, live in Iowa and love showing livestock. My parents have always listened to podcasts in the truck, so I naturally got hooked. However, it wasn't until I was at a Walker Hayes/Parmalee concert in the fall of 2022, when I caught the ambition to start a podcast.

I was in front row with my friend Jace and during the Parmalee concert, the lead singer handed me his electric guitar. After that night, I was contacted by two different radio stations and was able to be interviewed on air. The radio personalities showed me around the station and their equipment. From there, I thought how fun would it be to talk about livestock with my friends on a podcast?

And that's how The Joe Show started.
