Interview with Josh James
The first interview of 2021 had to be awesome so I got Josh James Kiwi Bushman on the show! He has a frothing following on YouTube where they create motivating and inspiring short films with a hunting and fishing and family flavor. All of the videos feature Josh’s friends and family and the abundant wild food that surrounds them in New Zealand. If you are into Catch and cook, bushcraft, hunting, gathering, spearfishing, fishing, archery, and New Zealand culture, you will love his channel (link here). He’s a self professed good vibes and positive vibrations kind of guy. Enjoy this episode!
