Paul and Casey interview Carol Linnitt, Ph.D., a journalist, surfer, and co-founder of The Narwhal about the nuances of conservation
In this episode, we are joined by Carol Linnitt, co-founder of The Narwhal. She is a journalist, editor, illustrator, surfer, and Ph.D.
The Narwhal is a leading voice in the world of investigative and critical environmental journalism. We chat with Carol about the importance of engaging with the complexity that defines conservation issues. We also talk about the role that journalists can play in bridging perspectives. As hunters, we can learn a great deal from her approach to “reflecting complexity, rather than trying to resolve it.”
Casey and Paul also discuss some recent news that will affect caribou management and conservation. We discuss ways you can take action.
In the food segment, Casey and Jonah Curtis talk about garden fundamentals. They also discuss some gardening science and some tips to get started growing your own food.

Through his work and writing, he hopes to connect people and their knowledge to contribute to positive and inclusive hunting and conservation communities.
