Interview with Justin Townsend
Justin Townsend joins me and shares 3 dynamite seafood recipes that are game changers! Justin hosts the Wild Fish and Game Podcast which is a food centric podcast where they talk about all aspects of hunting, fishing, and cooking of wild foods.Justin has been living in Key West, FL for the last 4 years and has taken up spearfishing in the last year. Justin made his way on spearfishing boats by applying his professionally trained fish chef skills, always helping out and bringing the stoke. Justin has been a hunter and angler since he was a child and has always enjoyed the outdoors. He was raised in Southeastern Oklahoma where hunting and fishing was used as a way to supplement home-grown and store-bought food so his values are very in-line what many of us Noobers hold dear.
