Welcome to Taking Measure

Welcome to Taking Measure; a podcast series exploring Roderick Haig-Brown’s 1950 classic work Measure of the Year: Reflections on home, family and a life fully lived.

In his book Measure of the Year, Haig-Brown presents a chapter for each month in the lives of the farm, his family, the community and the nature that surrounds them.  We’re going to bring you Haig-Brown in 12 parts through his book and through the eyes and voices of his four children and others who knew him well.  We’ll take a measure of the man through his Measure of the Year.
