In this episode of the Cultivariable podcast, I talk with potato breeder Doug Strong. Doug specializes in breeding diploid potatoes and has produced a bunch of really interesting varieties that are well known by Andean potato enthusiasts, such as Big Dog, Black Hornet, Yellow Dog, and Strawberry Timepiece.
Due to background noise, I had to chop this recording up a little more than usual and some cuts forced me to rearrange sections so that they would make more sense. In a few places, this leads to weird transitions like asking questions that have just been answered. I did my best to keep as much as possible.
