Ryan and Hillary sit down to help Zach Kenner of Hard Working Hunter promote the launch of his new short film True Conservation. This summer we were able to view the movie at the Northwest Mountain Challenge and it touched us greatly. So we invited Zach into our home for a meal and to talk about why he did this film and it's not what you think.
Today's podcast is all about our busiest time of the year: Harvest season. Whether it's food from the garden, forest, or an animal that Ryan takes, preserving and getting these foods ready for the winteris a lot of work.
Ryan and Hillary share their stores about harvest season, some of their recommendations on dehydration and canning, and they share a few stories from years gone by.
Ryan spent most of his young life in nature hiking, scouting, and hunting. Skills learned from his father shaped his love for the outdoors and the a healthy respect for the balance of life. In today's podcast, Ryan takes his oldest daughter Pailey Belle hiking and possibly bear hunting for the 1st time. Even though she is only 8, not old enough to hunt by herself, she is very excited to be on the hunt with her Dad.
Today's podcast is inspired by the many jars of beets we have pickled in the last few weeks. Months ago I got a question about cooking beets, and I thought I'd finally give some help! Besides it being harvest season, and without a real kitchen for two months, Ryan and I were able to get a few beet recipes on board, as well as BUNCH pickled for the winter. (Look for the canning/preservation recipe in our upcoming The StHealthy Preservation Guide and Healing Foods Library )
In the first part of Navigating Lyme Disease, Dr. Darin Ingels shared the history, prevelance, signs and symptoms, and diagnosis of Lyme Disease. If you haven't listened to this yet, please do, it will make it easier to follow Part 2.
In this second part, Dr. Hillary and Dr. Ingels talk treatments of Lyme Disease, co-infections, and the modalities that have clinically helped the many patients he has treated.
Lyme Disease (LD) is currently the #1 vector borne infectious disease in the US. It's growing at upwards of hundreds of thousands of cases per year, and unfortunately for many, it goes undiagnosed. In this 2-part podcast series, Dr. Hillary interviews LD expert Dr. Darin Ingels on navigating LD and the many aspects of infection, diagnosis, and treatment.
Tony Burlison has been around coffee as far back as he can remember. It's been a passion of his, along with hunting, since a young age, and now he brought that love to us with the Dark Timber Coffee brand. A PNW born company, Dark Timber is blowing up the world of backcountry coffee making as we know it. With the new Ascent pack, this one of a kind coffee single lets you drink a French Press quality drink without packing in all the equipment. In this episode, Tony talks about his history with coffee, his business experience, his reasons for staring the Ascent packs, and lots more.
Ryan meets up with the Hunt Wild film boys, Jeff Lust, Paul Hallerr, and Eric Forslin. He interviews them about Paul's 2017 Nevada Mule Deer Hunt, where he drew the same unit that Ryan did. This is a fun conversation that travels through the high country of Nevada and Paul Haller's mule deer hunt.
This hunt was dedicated to Paul's father who died only 7 months ago. In his own words from a recent IG @p_hallerr post:
This is a long story. One that has taken me nearly 20 years to write. If you don’t have a relationship in your life, then this story may not interest you, but if you love, are, or know anyone who has a passion greater than most, you may get something from it. It wasn’t an easy story to live or write about. It’s not easy to share our flaws, our secrets, our fears. Relationships, especially marriages, usually always have something to teach us. My teacher was coming to love a man who loves hunting, and through that, realizing that I didn’t need to make him choose. He could love us both.
In this podcast Ryan and Hillary sit down at the Oregon Waterfowl Festival/NW Elk Camp with Scott and Beth Carr of Hammer and Chisel. They talk about a wide range of topics from hunting, health, marriage, and in the end they all get personal about themselves and what they are most grateful for (including Ryan and Hillary).
If you haven't heard of Kombucha these days you must be living under a rock way....OK well that may be a little extreme- but Kombucha seems to be everywhere. Perhaps you don't know why it's so popular, but it has to do with fermentation and the benefits these foods have on our health. In this podcast we are joined again by Dr. Jillian Teta, where she fills us in on all the benefits of fermented foods.
