Enjoy Your Built in the Bluegrass Podcast to Support and Explore Kentucky Products and Entrepreneurs

Before it was founded as a U.S. Commonwealth in 1792, Kentucky couldn’t be easily settled; it had to be pioneered.  The unique diversity of terrain and fertile soil of ‘The Bluegrass” then established the beginnings of world-acclaimed Kentucky products made by fearless adventurers. Commonwealth Insurance Partners is pleased and honored to sponsor and produce Built in the Bluegrass as a podcast series to celebrate the ongoing tradition of Kentucky entrepreneurialism, from Manufacturing, to Spirits, Agriculture, Horse Racing, Handmade Products , Technology and more. Come join us in exploring the tradition of pioneering that is still uniquely Kentucky.
