A brand new podcast is highlighting Shiawassee County. The podcast, titled "Shiawassee Radio," is powered by Durand Now, the parent company of this website.
In the first episode, "Sheriff BeGole's Barn," we take a trip to Shiawassee County Sheriff Brian BeGole's farm to explore the barn he built from lumber saved from historic farm barns throughout the county.
With Gemma the bulldog at our feet, we also talk about a variety of "Sheriff business" like the new jail garden, the recent jail feasibility study, the recent relocation of the 911 center and more.
A gallery of photos taken around the farm will be published on PerryPulse.com soon.
