Know Your Baker

Neighbourhood bakers play a hugely positive role in their communities. One that goes far beyond basic nourishment. Their stories deserve to be heard.

The Rise Up! Podcast is a celebration of bakers, the bakeries they create and the people they serve.

Join Mark Dyck as he talks with bakers and bakery owners from across North America and around the world. Hear about their struggles and triumphs and learn about the satisfaction that feeding a community can provide.

If you get John Reid talking about good bread and local grain economies, be prepared for a hearty, robust conversation. John's vast experience as a baker, oven builder and grain advocate has taken him from his small town outside Melbourne Australia to as far away as Canada, the USA and the UK in his quest to learn and bring that knowledge home.

In this episode, Mark learns about the magic of Scotch ovens, the ethos behind Redbeard and why continued wheat breeding for local ecosystems is so important.
