Gongol & Dean
Sunday Nights at 9:00
Newsradio 1040 WHO

As it gets cold outside, the last few loads come in from the harvest. Mark and Gary have been taking yield reports from the field all week, but what's a city slicker to make of "30-bushel beans"? Brian Dean grew up on the farm, so he knows; but city kid Brian Gongol admits that he doesn't. We'll talk to Todd Vagts of Iowa State University Extension about what every city kid should know about the harvest, and what the drought that killed your lawn did to the corn and soybeans.

Then it's time to talk about the estate tax, and how the state and federal governments can take your money even when you're dead. Sure, only some people have to pay it, but you may be surprised at what kind of net worth makes a person "rich" in the eyes of the tax collector.
