Mors Kochanski is a man who needs no introduction to people in the bushcraft community. My friend Dragan Uzelac from Niko Wilderness Education and The More You Know Podcast recently posted a 2 hour, 7 minute podcast interview where Mors discusses many things that will be of interest to the student of survival training and bushcraft.
A few points of interest to me were the link between growing a garden and understanding how much food one needs to forage in order to live off the land during the warm months, how his early years on a farm prepared him for a life teaching others about living in the forest, and how every trip to the well during the winter did double duty of getting water and contributing to the ice reserve that kept things cool in the summer.
There’s a ton of great information in the podcast, and it also offers an opportunity to get to know another side of one of the industry’s most influential people. I’m a big fan of both Mors and Dragan, but even if I weren’t this podcast is definitely worth a listen.
