Each year, organizers of the Tri State Grain Growers Convention search for a speaker outside of agriculture who can nevertheless provide lessons for farmers. At the 2018 convention in Portland, that speaker was Keni Thomas, a singer/songwriter today who was in 1992 a member of Bravo Company of the third Rangers Battalion of the U.S. army in Mogadishu, Somalia. In episode 106, entitled: An Example Others Can Follow: Inspiration From Black Hawk Down, Thomas uses his battle experience as context for lessons we can all appreciate.
