Mary Swander Podcast- Ask Ruby

Season #2 Episode #29: Ask Ruby

“Ruby, why do Amish men shave off their mustaches but still have beards? Do the Amish vote? Do they use binoculars? What are their favorite foods? What is Rumspringa? Can the Amish use solar panels? How do they observe Ascension Thursday?” Find answers to these and other winning questions in the “Ask Ruby Contest” with host Mary Swander and questioners from Iowa to New Mexico to Alaska. Music by Robert Stone.
