The Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife is doing a great job with their podcasts.
I’ve posted columns about some of them, but you should check all of them out. DIF&W’s Katie Yates, who joined the department 2 years ago, and whose job is to recruit more hunters and anglers, thought podcasts would be a good way to do that, so she created Fish and Game Changers podcasts.
And that might be true, but the podcasts have also been enjoyed by a lot sportsmen and women. Since February, Yates has created 26 podcasts, on a wide range of subjects, from new hunters to micro-breweries that benefit from clean water.
“We all love to hunt and fish, snowshoe and hike,” said Liz Thorndike, a fisheries biologist featured in the first podcast. And she said she was amazed at all the people who watched and commented on her podcast, including people who don’t hunt or fish.
Check out these podcasts sometime soon.
