    Matthew Failor & The 17th Dog Team: Life Through Sled Dogs, Mama Cruz Style

    in Lifestyle

    We are going to have Matthew Failor of the 17th Dog team here to talk with us for an hour about not just "Life With Sled Dogs," but "Life THROUGH Sled Dogs:" The why's of mushing in the first place, and what living through them means to Matthew himself. 


    As this show is new and most may not know me, I want to explain a bit more on what I mean by life WITH and life THROUGH sled dogs. Lfie with the sled dogs means everything from a personal bio to what the dogs are fed, and life THROUGH is going to cover the very basics of why we mush in the first place, to what these majestic creatures have taught us about living, loving and doing right. 


    The converstaion is going to be very from-the-hip in an "around the campfire" tone; As sled dog enthusiasts and mushers, we ALL have a story to tell, a new perspective to share and lessons to pass along, regardless of what size our kennels are and if our names are recognized throughout the community, or not. 


    Matthew has a background that spans tourism with the sled dogs, as well as racing, and has some fantastic perspectives to share, and stories a-plenty. I do hope you'll join us for this conversation!

    Episode Thirty-four.... It's a Great time to be a Geek, or is it ?

    in Hobbies

    Okay, so let's face it.  Geekdom is at an all time high.  What used to be an incredibly small counter culture of renegade gamers with high IQ's and low public acceptance which rallied in basements and shared their dreams of conquest, power and legendary deeds, have now become a target marketshare for numerous corporations.  In less just about thirty years we have gone from lonely to legion!!!


    New conventions are appearing every year and most of the already established ones are expanding.  Geeks are pouring into every city in their cargo shorts, graphic Tee's, back packs and rule books in hand in record numbers.  Cosplayers are showing up in every possible persona from the Flintstones all the way to dead alaskan painter Bob Ross.  Everywhere you look, more and more Geeks are crawling from there preverbial holes and joining the world at large.  


    But at what cost?  We are actually becoming such a large group that we are beginning to splinter into sub groups again and those groups are at times finding it hard to accept and share the spot light.  Steampunkers, Tabletop War Gammers, Cardies, Boardies, Consolers, Cosplayers, RPG'ers, LARP'ers, MMO'ers, Trekkies, Jedi's, Vamps, Tramps and a 1000 others... when is to much to much and what does it mean to market a game or product to these numerous and varied groups.  Tonight on the Wolf's Den we look at the expanding world of Geek and how much further we think it can go before we see it shatter and splinter into seperate cons, gatherings and events.

    Nick Jans-A Wolf Called Romeo Live with Scott Cluthe

    Scott Cluthe talks with Nick Jans about his new book, A Wolf Called Romeo. A compelling story of an unlikely 6 year relationship with a Black Wolf in the Alaskan outback. Call in: 347-308-8478


    I was born the son of a career diplomat and spent 12 of my first 13 years overseas—first Palermo, Sicily, then Vienna, Austria, and finally Thailand from 1962-67. My dad was the American consul in Udorn Thani, a forward CIA and special operations base for missions into Laos, and later on, into North Vietnam. I attended high school in the Washington DC area and graduated in 1977 from Colby College in Waterville, Maine, with a degree in English Literature. Though mostly raised in cities, I had always dreamed of living in a wilderness setting, and set out for Alaska in 1979. After an 800 mile canoe trip, I settled in a remote Eskimo village on the upper Kobuk River in northwest arctic Alaska, 200 miles off the road grid. I worked for a hunting guide, managed a trading post, and then became a schoolteacher to Inupiat Eskimo children in the local school. But my first love was always the seemingly limitless, wild country that surrounded me, and the creatures that roamed it. In 20 years of living in the region, I travelled tens of thousands of wilderness miles by skiff, canoe, on foot, skis, and snowmobile, often alone I’m a contributing editor to Alaska Magazine, and on USA Today’s board of editorial contributors. I currently live on a semi-remote homesite in Southeast Alaska with my wife, Sherrie, and our four dogs.
