K-State Research and Extension News

Extension Files folder image

The Extension Files features a different K-State Research and Extension agent in each episode, answering the question, "What do you do?" while also exploring why they are passionate about their career.

The podcast is a product of K-State Research and Extension, which is Kansas State University’s outreach and education system. We have an office in every one of Kansas’ 105 counties. The goal for K-State Research and Extension is to be everyday Kansans’ trusted source for relevant, unbiased research and information to help people, businesses and communities solve problems, develop skills and build a better future.

In Kansas, extension agents’ expertise and deep network of connections cover a wide array of topics: food (from livestock and crop production to preparation and preservation); families and community; 4-H youth development; finances; health in all stages of life; gardening; landscaping … and much more.

As the podcast features agents from across Kansas and in a wide array of specialties, listeners can gain an appreciation for the value of this work, the interconnectedness of resources available to all Kansans and the commitment to service shared by agents everywhere -- and they can get to know these agents as people who are active participants in their hometowns.
