Off the Record with Scott Leysath, The Sporting Chef, and Michelle Scheuermann. This is not another outdoor cooking show - or frankly, any outdoor show as we dive into how to prepare wild game and give inside knowledge to the outdoor industry - all while drinking wine during the podcast - which gets a little dicey...
OTR 24: Getting to Know More About Michelle
Fascinating insights into the outdoor TV biz and more as Scott asks Michelle about her life in and out of the outdoor industry, specifically at Sportsman Channel. They talk about what is really takes to get into outdoor TV (e.g. a lot of work) and is it truly worth it? Plus, Michelle tries to dissect when did Scott stop eating his own food on national TV? And even though this podcast is supposed to be about Michelle, there’s a lot of Scott-stories as well.
OTR #23 Hot Game-Cooking Secrets with Chef John McGannon
Fabulous & well-spoken game chef Chef John McGannon of WildEats.Com is back with Scott & Michelle for a show loaded with cooking tips, and Scott lets it slip that he owns two e-bikes. Mayhem ensues. Listen to Part 1 with Chef John in Eps 18.
OTR #22: Stuck in Lodi with Kevin Phillips of Michael David Winery
How did Michael David Winery, out of Lodi, Cali., get named the American Winery of the Year in 2020? Listen in as Kevin Phillips, VP of Something at Michael David Winery, shares how his family started the vineyard in the ‘80’s, created a monster brand with “7 Deadly Zins” (which eventually sold to Constellation Brands) and that life is really good in Lodi.
Visit Michael David Winery and get their Freakshow Chardonnay wine.
OTR #21 Hunting on TV with Melissa Bachman
Have you ever woken up and forgot where you are? And what you are hunting that day? It happens if you travel as the host and producer of an award-winning TV series for more than 300 days out of the year, just like Melissa Bachman of Winchester Deadly Passion.

OTR #19 Wine for Normal People with Elizabeth Schneider
Cut through snooty wine talk! (And the banter between Elizabeth, Scott and Michelle BEFORE the recording is almost better than when they decided to be "official.")
Guest Elizabeth Schneider, creator of Wine for Normal People (podcast, book and website of the same name) joins Scott & Michelle. Elizabeth talks about how she got her start into the wine business – which was kind of a rocky start. Of course, the three of them get into the debate of what price level signifies a “good” bottle of wine. (No one agrees with Michelle – still) Plus, a lot of talk about how wine is an agricultural product and Elizabeth dives into the neo-temperance movement. Scott quizzes Elizabeth on wine pairings for a variety of foods. Oh – and don’t do the “Tour de Franzia.”
Elizabeth’s many wine recommends made during the show:
Guru – the $14 bottle of wine that tastes like a $50 bottle. https://egobodegas.com/wines/goru-monastrell-ingles/
Spain and Italy are great places to find a good bottle for a great value.
Scott thew Michelle under the bus about Merlot, so now her assignment is to find a bottle from Cotes de Bordeaux region, Castillon region or Saint Emilien region
