    Chronic Wasting Disease – New Diagnostics – Modern Carnivore Podcast – (Ep: 048)

    Chronic Wasting Disease – New Diagnostics – Modern Carnivore Podcast – (Ep: 048)

    Chronic Wasting Disease - New Diagnostics from Priogen - Modern Carnivore Podcast - (EP:047)





    In this episode of the Modern Carnivore Podcast Mark talks with Dr. Peter Larsen and Marc Schwabenlander from the startup diagnostics company Priogen. The company is on the cutting edge of diagnostics and testing for prions. Prions are the misshapen proteins that are the foundation of what's called Chronic Wasting Disease. This disease affects many deer each year and it's 100% lethal to the deer that gets it. For these reasons and more, the work being done by this organization is very important to the future of hunting.

    Rue Mapp of Outdoor Afro – Modern Carnivore Podcast – (Ep: 045)

    Rue Mapp of Outdoor Afro - Modern Carnivore Podcast - (EP:045)





    In this episode of the Modern Carnivore Podcast, Mark is joined by Rue Mapp who is the founder of Outdoor Afro. Rue has a forthcoming book titled Nature Swagger. You can find it on Amazon, or anywhere that books are sold. The Outdoor Afro mission states that they "...celebrate(s) and inspire(s) Black connections and leadership in nature".



    Since she was a young girl Rue has loved being in the outdoors. Her father had a ranch north of Oakland, CA where he would hunt, fish and invite others to stay with the family and celebrate life. She continues her own outdoor adventures as an adult with a spirit of hospitality that she learned from her father. Life also has her venturing down new paths and recently she began hunting with outings alongside Holly Heyser from the Center for Humans and Nature as well as our friend Janis Putelis from Meateater.



    Since the recording of this episode she has also collaborated with tennis star Venus Williams and announced a new clothing line in partnership with REI. So, to say that Rue is busy these days is an understatement. We hope you enjoy this episode of the Modern Carnivore Podcast, and we're sure you'll see a lot more of Rue Mapp in the coming years.



    Rue Mapp, Founder of Outdoor Afro
