S6: American Ostrich Farms

A dozen or so female ostriches in pen.

Boise State Public Radio
American Ostrich Farms is located at 20601 S Pleasant Valley Road in Kuna.

To close out the 6th season, LD & Joel make a trip to American Ostrich Farms. We know what you're thinking and we have a few answers: yes, it's red meat, no, you can't ride them and, surprise, it actually doesn't taste like chicken.

By day, I manage all things digital at Boise State Public Radio. I also co-host and produce the podcast You Know The Place. By night, I'm probably counting pollinators in my garden, getting a work out done in the garage gym, or adding to my winning tally of Yahtzee games against my wife.
I started working with Boise State Public Radio in 2018, first as a freelance podcaster of You Know The Place, and later as a contract producer for Reader’s Corner. The former ran for six award-winning seasons, visiting funeral homes, ostrich farms and nude retreats for the story. The latter is now in its 22nd year of interviewing NYT-bestselling, Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winning authors.
