Episode 82 WTIP Boundary Waters Podcast

Food tastes better during a trip to the Boundary Waters. It’s a common sentiment, one many visitors to the canoe-country wilderness can relate to.

During a recent winter trip to the BWCA, the podcast team explored the notion that food is about much more than fuel for the body. It’s about bringing people together. Superior National Forest Tribal Liaison Juan Martinez returns to the podcast in this episode, bringing a cooking “disco” to prepare burritos for a group of eight. In addition to Juan, the Great Josh Dix talks lake trout fishing at the start of the season, and Adam Mella from the Tumblehome podcast makes a cameo.

Also featured in the episode is discussion about the 2023 Gunflint Mail Run, which brought throngs of people to the edge of the BWCA this year.
