This week's programs

There’s more to your vision than meets the eye

2020 is the year of the eye. The eyes are not just a window to your soul, they are a window to your health. Abnormalities spotted in the eye are often the first signs of disease elsewhere in the body. Do you have questions about glaucoma? Cataracts? What about PRK or Lasik?

Nutrition for an active life

On the next Outdoor Explorer, our guest will be sports dietician Rikki Keen. We will have a wide ranging discussion of the latest trends in sports nutrition, from a plant-based diet and intermittent fasting to the use of intravenous hydration and CBD oil.

Addressing Alaskans

What kind of fiscal future do we want for Alaska? Listen to this panel discussion featuring Senator Natasha von Imhof, Mayor Ethan Burkowitz

What Alaskans want for their state's economic future can be as varied as the population itself. Can we continue relying on oil revenues or do we need to further diversify our economy? What kind of pressure can the Permanent Fund take? In this panel discussion hosted by Alaska Common Ground, speakers make their cases for what direction the state's fiscal future should take.

AK: A Petersburg veterinarian floats his clinic to Southeast communities

To help commemorate the last episode of the show, Hunt has invited as his guest, Stage Talk creator and first host, Catherine Stadem.
