Preserving Wild Food

Preserving Wild Food

Fall is in the air and it is time to put up the food you caught and gathered over the summer so it will last you till spring. On the show, we’ll roll up our sleeves and get down to the details about the best ways to butcher, smoke, can, and freeze what you caught and picked over the last few months, and the next few weeks, so that when the snow flies you can taste a little of the summer and make the most of your harvest.

Alaska Maritime Workforce Needs

There are eight thousand fishing vessels registered in Alaska and not enough qualified Alaskans to fill the jobs aboard them or working on them. Everyone knows the state needs to beef up its vocational training resources, but how do we get there? Maritime work-force development is the subject on the next “Talk of Alaska.”

Hunter Education

Hunter Education

There’s a lot to know to be a successful hunter or angler, and not everyone learns it from a parent or family friend. That’s especially true for women, who may not have been treated as potential outdoors people as girls. As the fall season begins, we will explore the opportunities for hunter education, including classes created for women, and learn what it is that you really should know.

Coexisting with Wildlife

Wildlife managers always give the same advice – let wildlife stay wild. They say do not feed the animals, do not let your pets go after them, and do not allow them to become habituated to humans. But what if the wildlife comes to you? And your pets?

Running and Your Health

Running and Your Health

Running has beneficial effects on lipoproteins levels, improves blood pressure and diabetes control and may even prevent type 2 diabetes. It clearly helps increase bone density, may decrease the risk of dementia and/or cognitive decline, reduces stress, anxiety, and depression, and helps prevent and treat obesity. It has some risks but doesn’t cost much. So why don’t more people run? Learn more about the effect running has on your health with Line One host Dr. Thad Woodard and guests.
