    Hunting Around New York City and Long Island – OFP (EP:021)

    Hunting Around New York City and Long Island – OFP (EP:021)

    This week, we're sharing a fun conversation that was recorded on February 29, 2020 at the World Fishing Expo in Suffern, New York. Located within 40 miles of downtown Manhattan, this popular outdoor expo draws tens of thousands of visitors annually. Our conversation happened just one week before last year's COVID-19 restrictions. Matt Corcoran, Gary Maerz and Tom Hammond join Todd this week.  They share their insights and stories about what it's like hunting and fishing on Long Island.



    How would you get started hunting on Long Island? For those outside the Northeast, it might not appear that Long Island has some of the best hunting/angling opportunities. First of, Matt talks about his incredible personal journey working on a lobster boat for his father-in-law in Mount Sinai, New York. Then Gary, founder of Germanik Angler, shares his story as someone who grew up fishing and later developed an interest in hunting. While sharing his stories, Gary talks about his re-activation journey as an adult angler.  In addition, he explains why he loves the term #FashionablyLateHunter. Finally, Tom talks about his transition from growing up in New York's Adirondack Mountains and then moving to Queens several years ago.

    Indigikitchen with Mariah Gladstone – OFP (EP:019)

    Indigikitchen with Mariah Gladstone – OFP (EP:019)

    Mariah Gladstone joins the Outdoor Feast Podcast this week to talk about her online cooking platform Indigikitchen. She explains how she's using cooking videos, storytelling and food to build awareness around food sovereignty & wellness for Indigenous communities. She's also sharing some incredible recipes for delicious meals like butternut bison lasagna, blue corn-crusted whitefish and amaranth crackers.



    Mariah Gladstone (Blackfeet, Cherokee) lives in western Montana and attended Columbia University in New York City to study environmental engineering. She's been a featured speaker on TEDxBozeman and is a Champion for Change through the Center for Native American Youth. Mariah shares some stories about how she got started with Indigikitchen, offers a definition of food sovereignty and talks about influences like Winona LaDuke and Robin Wall Kimmerer.



    What is the difference between food sovereignty and food security?



    MG: Food security is mainly about food access. Food sovereignty includes food security as well as the right to control your own food systems and to feed yourself. For Native nations, we are striving to feed ourselves without relying on external "food aid."
