On this week's show, we’re sharing stories from modern day hunters and gatherers.

We begin on the forest floor with Danlyn Brennan, who has spent her life foraging wild edibles. Her passion for wild craft is clear yet complicated by a desire to keep her methods and locations hidden. 

Author Susan Schadt discusses her book Wild Abundance, which explores Southern hunting tradition through a blend of photography, stories, and recipes.

Then, we travel to the island of Kauai and meet James Sarme, a fisherman who casts about the traditional Hawaiian way. 

We also attend a wild boar cook-off in Violet, Louisiana, where we speak with 18-year-old hunter Meagan Dragon. Meagan is one half of a father-daughter hunting team with her dad, Darryl Dragon.

Finally, Emily Degan shares the story behind her women's hunting apparel company, St. Hugh. Emily is working to remedy the lack of clothing offerings for female hunters.
