Just south of Michigan State University’s main campus sits a 15-acre Student Organic Farm. Here, students can learn about the farming industry with hands-on experience. The farm grows and distributes produce, raises livestock and explores means of sustainable farming. The latest development at the farm is the Pastured Pig Project. Impact’s Abbie Newton explored the farm and assisted in the production of this piece.
Welcome to the Progressive Torch and Twang! Tuesday nights at Impact we feature the best of Folk, Bluegrass and Americana.

Sturgill Simpson- Railroad of Sin- High Top Mountain
Lily & Madeline- Devil We Knew- Lily & Madeline
John Fullbright- Moving- From the Ground Up

The show kicks off with a special guest, Zac Sweirad, Impact Sports’ MSU baseball reporter, who adds to the panel’s discussion of the team’s season and what to expect in the upcoming Big Ten Tournament.
The topics then shift to playoffs and begin with a heated debate about the Chris Kreider-Carey Price collision in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
The show wraps up with a discussion about the NBA playoffs and how much the Serge Ibaka injury will hurt the Oklahoma City Thunder against the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals.
Sit or Spin was silly, weird and fun tonight with new tracks from Parquet Courts, Chromeo, Sharon Van Etten, and Little Dragon. The panel got into some garage tracks as well and we discussed what place they hated so much that they would name their band after it (reference to Sultan Bathery).
