Wow

Informative, humorous, soothing. Ryan has the availability to mix all the above into a flowing conversation, while detailed keeping it around 20 min. Can’t say enough about the meat eater crew from their knowledge to their humor. Makes me feel like we are friends having a drink around the fire shooting the 💩.

A great resource for catching up with conservation news

As a hunter and conservationist, Cal does a great job of informing us and keeping out of partisan politics. It's a fast paced and entertaining round up of current happenings and is useful whether you are just staying informed or take a more active interest in things.

This podcast is an excellent companion to meateater.
