Ep. 141: The End of Living Off the Land in Louisiana, the Market for Alligators, and Catching Dinosaurs with Swamp People’s Troy and Jacob Landry

Play Episode


On this week’s episode, Ben heads to Pierre Part, La., to chase alligators with the Landry family of History Channel’s Swamp People fame. They hit the bayou to hang bait before heading out with three generations of gator hunters to fill tags to be sold to buyers and distributors. They eat a true cajun meal and sit down to talk about being on cable TV for 12 years, the end of “living off land” in Louisiana, and why people from around the world are drawn to their corner of the bayou. Enjoy.
