• #52: The Voices in Our Heads

    When you’re spending time in the Great Outdoors, what voices are in your head? From our parents to our kids to Steve Rinella and Randy Newberg and Rocky Leflore, technology coupled with memories has given us a fantastic perspective on why we do, what we do . . . This is our discussion about that! Bonus: Here’s a link to Emily’s Wasabi Oreos . . . Keeps: Emily – Hipcamp – need a campsite?  This site is like airbnb, only for campers!

  • #51: Ducks as College Football Teams

    Duck season is fast approaching.  College Football Season has already started. How does a wayward outdoors podcast combine the two? Simple – we take the AP Top 10 and assign them duck species that correlate to their various program identities. Oh.  And Emily drafts country music singers.  And maybe rappers. If that sounds like the most ridiculous 40 minutes you’ve ever spent, wait until you click play! PS – if you’re in Florida, and hunt the Kissimmee River Basin, make plans to be at this meeting!

  • #49: Discharges, Big Sugar, and Red Tide

    It’s been a miserable summer in Southwest Florida – a never ending red tide bloom. Discharges from Lake Okeechobee.  An election cycle. Our state sits in the midst of an ecological disaster that’s being tossed around like a political volleyball.  Misinformation abounds.  Divisions are drawn in the sand.  Confusion reigns. This week, we take one episode to give you our thoughts.  This is not our normal fare.  This is pure, unfiltered, and raw. We’ll be back to jokes and punchlines and fishing tips and duck tricks next week. Follow Cast and Blast Florida . . .

  • #48: The Stay Woke Playlist

    It’s 4 am. You’ve got a full, NRA approved Yeti Rambler of coffee, the boat’s gassed up, and you’re headed to the boat ramp. What’s on the radio? We asked as many folks as we could for their “on the way to the boat ramp” songs, and this is what we’ve ended up with.  The first ever playlist designed to actually keep you “woke” in the truest sense of the word . . .
