  • #108: the North American Model of Conservation

    The North American Conservation Model. We toss this term around pretty frequently on our show, and we hear it mentioned on other podcasts and platforms on a regular basis . . . but, what does it mean? This week, we take a run at unpacking the model, in a quick hit fashion, to at least bring it to the surface for future conversations. Plus – Our favorite redheads, Nate’s weekly football allegiance update, Emily recommends a curling iron (sorta), and more!

  • Conversations #1: Eric Orlando

    Our first foray into deep dives around Florida Outdoors, we did a call with Eric Orlando of 6 Drakes Photography.

  • #87: Things Fishermen Like, a Redux

    Remember our first episode? A little less than 2 years ago we took to the airwaves and forever changed the face of podcasting (note: we didn’t say we changed it for the better) . . . with our first episode taking a tongue in cheek view of Things Fishermen Like. In light of our summer break, we decided to revisit our initial list, as well as add a few new items to the discussion. Don’t worry, though – we all still hate Kenny Chesney!

  • #64: What We’d Give for Christmas

    ‘Tis the Season to be . . . giving?
