Today we are going to have a first ever interview. Patrick and Emily Roehrman came down to the Spirko homestead to do an interview about making soap, basic homesteading, knife making and home schooling with a large family.
Patrick of course is the knife maker that made my custom made mammoth tusk neck knife. Emily maintains a website where they sell their soap at SimplyCleansing.com and you can learn more about Patrick’s knife making at MT Knives.
During the interview you will notice some “jingling” that isn’t Santa it is Max the dog hanging with us during the interview.
