    EP35: Krista Halling & John Freeman—Better Adventures With Your Dog

    Let's talk about dogs. We love them! Walks, cuddles, playing fetch...
    But what about travel and adventure with your dog? Have you boarded a plane with your pup? Embarked on a multi-day backpacking adventure? An epic road trip?
    If you're like most people, you likely look for a dog-sitter when you're travelling. But what if you changed your mindset and looked at ways you can bring your do with you.
    It's possible. Krista and John can show us how—and this is why they founded DogPacking.com, a website devoted to information and inspiration for better adventures with your dog.  
    Krista is a veterinary surgeon and John is currently on a round-the-world bike-packing trip with his dog in tow. So they know their stuff.
    So let's sit back and talk dogs with Krista Halling and John Freeman.

    EP34: Dr. Saeid Mushtagh and Burgess Andre—Pine Pollen, Canada's Home-Grown Superfood

    EP34: Dr. Saeid Mushtagh and Burgess Andre—Pine Pollen, Canada's Home-Grown Superfood

    We’ve all heard the term “superfood” before. Often in relationship to things like acai, a berry native to south and central America, or coconut oil—maybe avocado.
    All of these foods, for Canadians anyway, would need to be imported. Such is the way…
    So, when I heard about a superfood that was being wild and sustainably harvested right here in British Columbia—one that can bring you increases in energy, stamina, recovery and more—I was very interested.
    Have you heard of pine pollen? A powdery dust harvested from the small male cones of the lodgepole and ponderosa pine?
    Maybe you’re familiar with it as part of the tree’s propagation—but as a superfood? This is where things get really interesting.
    Today, my guests are Dr. Saeid Mushtagh and Burgess Andre. They are the co-founders of a company called Canadian Pine Pollen, harvesters and retailers of, among other things, pine pollen products.
    And they’ve been on a journey of discovery to unlock the potential of this superfood for our benefit.
    You’re gonna want to stay tuned for this one—we balance science, nature and sustainability—and if that’s not enough, I even have a special gift for you at the end of the episode.
    So let’s talk pine pollen with Dr. Saeid Mushtagh and Burgess Andre.

    EP30: Curtis Matwishyn—Let's Talk About Bears

    EP30: Curtis Matwishyn—Let's Talk About Bears

    Welcome to episode 30 of Explore Magazine's "Live the Adventure" Podcast.
    Let's talk about bears. Those majestic, beautiful creatures that roam the wild lands of just about every region in Canada...
    Those apex predators who can be misunderstood and feared by humans...
    And who, due to habituation and encroachment, are every so often the subject of a dicey (or worse) human-wildlife encounter.
    Today, my guest is Curtis Matwishyn. Curtis is a wildland firefighter and wildlife photographer living in Prince Albert National Park, Saskatchewan.
    As you can imagine, he's see a few bears. But one in particular resulted in a viral video and an impactful learning experience about how we as humans can better interact with bears...
    ...And what we NEED to carry with us when we travel in bear country.
    Do you like bears? Let's get into it.
