So, what do you think of the offseason content ideas for Corn Nation so far? We have movies, historical markers and Nebraska food. I’m still coming up with my idea. There will be one or two more Numbers, Statistics and Lies but beyond that I’m not sure yet. It is the 150th anniversary of the founding of the University of Nebraska and I’m sure there are a lot of interesting stories there. I’m also right in the middle of an area of Nebraska heavily affected by floods. Definitely a lot of interesting stories.

Let me know if you have ideas for my offseason contributions in the comments!
