Daniel Vitalis joins the show for a fascinating conversation about connecting to the natural world through food and how to positively impact our environment, communities, and family by learning practical lessons and outdoor skills to improve our lives in an overly digital and virtual world. The topics covered are broad, ranging from the local food model to Otzi the Iceman.

Daniel is a successful entrepreneur, public speaker, podcaster, writer, lifestyle pioneer, hunting guide, and ancestral living advocate.
