On this week’s show, MeatEater’s Miles Nolte and I discuss the issue of race in the hunting community and consider the idea of increasing diversity within and among hunters. For the interview segment, I’m joined by Dr. Carolyn Finney, a storyteller, author, and cultural geographer who wrote the book, Black Faces, White Spaces, which addresses the relationship of African Americans to the outdoors. It’s an incredibly difficult and important conversation for us all. Enjoy.
