We’re headed to Alaska this week to chat with our very own salmon fisherman, Steve Sturman, from Fred’s Alaska Seafood. We’ve been lucky enough to feature Steve in our EPIC Impact Journal and he came with us to Expo West as part of our “Meet your Rancher/Fisherman” booth! Every time he and I have spoken, I always say that I wish I was recording, because he always has an incredible story or really interesting knowledge about salmon and the fishing industry. Well this time I finally hit that record button! Steven and I chat about...

  • The fishing industry’s reputation for being among the most dangerous occupations
  • How a fella from Oklahoma ended up being an Alaskan Salmon fisherman
  • What happens to fish heads and fish guts and how the whole fish gets utilized
  • Wild vs. Farmed Salmon

For this week’s INSIDE EPIC we take you into the world of responsibly sourced leather! This was another interview recorded live at PaleoFX, where I talked to Janet Hamilton from Farrier Leather. I literally knew nothing about this topic and it was fascinating to learn why farmers typically don’t get a single penny from leather sales and why it's so hard to find responsibly sourced leather in America.

Thank you so much Janet for taking the time to do that! And not only did she take the time to chat with us at PaleoFX, she also sent us two incredibly beautiful Farrier leather notebooks! They’re featured in the blog and Instagram post for this episode check them out and follow Farrier if you’re interested in learning more about responsibly sourced leather!

Finally, I give yall some advice on how to be the first to hear about EPIC’s two huge upcoming launches (hint: subscribe to our newsletter!) and I read a review and you all can witness how I handle criticism (hint: tears?)
