These guys are outdoor industry pros! And they are funny too!
After listening to the first episode, I can’t wait to hear another one. Michelle Scheuermann got her start in the outdoor industry many years ago when the Sportsman Channel was in its infancy. Jim Braaten is a seasoned outdoor writer/blogger from the St. Paul, MN area. Between the two of them, they have a ton of stories to tell– delivered with keen insight and good ‘ole mid-western humor. If you have an interest in hunting, fishing or shooting or you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to work in the outdoor industry, I think you should hit the Subscribe button and check out this podcast.
Love the show
Awesome show! I just listened to the Melissa Bachman interview and after hearing it, I will be listening to all the podcast! Keep up the AWESOME work!
Making Fun Of Other Podcats-HORRIBLE!
I lisened to a few shows and thought it was decent show going on good, but just listened to "How To Interview A Celebrity" episode where Michelle proceed to put down indirectly (without naming them) much long running podcasts (that I am a loyal fan to for being around years) then they are and laugh hysterically about it like that was very supportive/professional thing to do. I hope this "little show that could" falls flat and off the radar completely for everyoner. I know I for one will never listen to it again!
