About this Episode


John Roderick is the creator of the band The Long Winters and a prolific podcast host and guest. He grew up in Alaska and sits down to explain every aspect of the state. He is not a man of few words. In our nearly 90 minutes of talking, we cover when to visit, what to do, and where to go, what the culture is like and why it's worth trekking to the most remote places. Don't miss John's tips on how to select and broker a deal with a bush pilot. Also we talk about bears.

Most of the links in this episode are to Google Maps and because Alaska is such a huge, varied place, it makes a lot of sense to click and open them up to know what parts of the region we're talking about at each moment.
