Episode 4 of ‘Round the Fire
Duration: 30 min
12:30PM – 1:00 PM CDT / 1:30 PM -2:00 PM EDT, October 21, 2020
Program Overview: ‘Round the Fire focuses on important conservation and environmental issues from a fishing & hunting perspective. The show offers viewers a “sitting around the campfire” vibe, where there’s room for both important environmental/conservation topics and personal stories. Most hunters & anglers care deeply about the outdoors, while sportsmen and women are important allies in America’s ongoing efforts to protect its landscapes and waters.
Episode Overview: Three experienced hunters & anglers come together on ‘Round the Fire to look at the politics of 2020 from an outdoor perspective. Why is it so hard for Democrats and Republicans to work together on the environmental and conservation issues that sportsmen and women care about? What should America’s outdoor brands, and conservation NGOs, be sharing with the American public prior to the election? What do America’s voters need to know before they vote? Join host Todd Tanner and his guests Jock Conyngham and Dylan Tomine for a deep dive into America’s current political landscape.

Short Description: In Cambodia and Thailand, forests are being cut down at a faster rate than even in Brazil’s rainforest. In order to combat the deforestation, Buddhist monks “ordain” trees as living monks. This prevents loggers from cutting the trees down, as no Buddhist logger wishes to risk the disapproval of their community or indeed their own karmic security. As a conservationist, Chantal worked closely with the Cambodian monks and was deeply moved by their philosophy.
Buddhist belief in the inter-connectedness of all life means that care and compassion for the natural world is at the heart of every action and every thought
