  • #136: the One about Conservation

    What happens when you take an article entitled “The Message of Conservation Failed” and mix it with the North American Conservation Model, Space X, the National Wildlife Refuge System, and Fisheries Management, while at the same time giving the funny host the week off and letting the other one take a break to (airquotes) “get married” . . .

  • Conversations 2.10: Jerod Newman

    Dogs Spend any time around any group of waterfowlers and the conversation will eventually turn to dogs – good ones, bad ones, crazy ones. This week, we’re joined by Jerod Newman of Doyle’s Farm Kennels, the premier retriever trainer in Florida.  He gives us a broad overview of the world he exists in, from bumper colors to e-collars, force fetch, hunt tests, and how answering an ad in the Orlando Sentinel changed his life.

  • #133: Water

    The Savings Clause.  WRDA.  Lake Levels.  LOSOM. LORS. Everglades Restoration. What does all of it mean?

  • Conversations 2.8: Nicole Qualtieri

    If you’ve listened to our podcast for any length of time, Tuesdays or Thursdays, you’ve heard us mention Nicole Qualtieri – she was the guest Editor of Volume 4 of Modern Huntsman, she created an all-women’s Deer Camp, she’s the hunting and fishing editor at Gear Junkie, a former employee of both Meateater AND BHA – and we have just the sort of meandering conversation you think we’d have – conservation funding, women in hunting, truth in reviews, the Office – you name it, we cover it in this, uhhh, unorthodox chat!

  • #132: Moms, Pellet Grills, and the Savings Clause

    We wanted to do a podcast about moms in the outdoors, but that turned out to be harder to accomplish than we thought.  So we do our best, ask for some help, and keep moving! This week, songs about moms, some thoughts on our moms, famous outdoors moms, a strange segue into the world of pellet grills, vacuum cleaners, apple watches, a rescheduled wedding, and Travis rants about a failure of leadership in the conservation world . . . Plus, new reviews, feedback on the dog draft, and #whileIcastandblast . . . Go to Patreon and become a friend of the show OFFICIALLY here! E-mail Fletcher with Hallett Insurance to…

  • Bonus Episode: the Sandlot

    Normally, this is something only Patrons of the show would see.  But, because of the current economic environment and the fact that we want our community to all be able to engage in these conversations, we decided to drop a Bonus Episode during this quarantine . . . We’re going to take a full hour and unpack all that we know and love about the the timeless classic, the Sandlot. Keeps, releases, and we answer the timeless question of “is this a baseball movie?” Go to Patreon and become a friend of the show OFFICIALLY here!

  • #130: the Show About Nothing

    You know how you can lay out the best plans – a podcast, complete with guests from another state, all about the indomitable boat snack queen, Little Debbie? Imagine that, only imagine that 2020 strikes again, this time at our audio, rendering us unable to bring forth penetrating diagnoses regarding Banana Twins, Boston Creme Rolls, and Cosmic Brownies.  In lieu, our intrepid regulars return, this time to talk about, well, nothing in particular, which includes turkey calls, cast iron cooking, working out, and freezer alarms.
