    This is the very best of MeatEater
    Cal I am a fan of all meateater sponsored products, shows and podcast. Yours is by far the one I look forward to the most. Family friendly, smart, informative and mature. Number one complaint, its too short!
  • raz.chris
    Love the conservation Cal presents
    While other MeatEater platforms seem to celebrate invasive plants animals, Cal keeps us focused on the dangers of invasive species. This is also the place to get all the scoop on everything we should know as conservation minded hunters and anglers. Thank you Cal. Keep it up.

    Thanks, Cal
    Love you’re updates. This podcast is a treasure trove of information, passion for conservation, and intelligent humor.

    Finally, a hunting intellectual
    We all have biases. Cal has a unique ability to shed that trash and shine a light right through the red vs blue garbage, while providing well thought out ideas on the topics most of us would agree on. I appreciate this kind of insight of everything from politics to evolution… Cal, you’re an unbelievable assest to this community. I hope to bump into you one day. Please… Keep the stash so I recognize you.

    Awesome podcast.
    I think the first podcast show i ever got into was cal's week in review. He is a true outdoorsmen that goes in depth on what it means to be a conservationist, and well just a good outdoorsmen. Keep up the good work Cal!
  • Jay Noff
    The content is ok. Although Cal has well researched topics the commentary is far from objective. Another problem is the affiliation between “I Heart Radio”, “Meat Eater” and “Cal’s Weekend Review”. Too many, irrelevant, and often inappropriate commercials. Is Meat Eater and co. not making enough money on content that they had to sell out to the establishment media? Liked you all when you were grass roots not now that you are big business/establishment media.

  • liversausages
    Too many ads
    Cal this podcast is more commercial than the average 30 minute cable tv program. With less commercials, 5 stars
  • jknoxOH
    Amazing podcast in short form!
    Absolute highlight of my week, listening to Cal’s week in review first, quickly followed by the MeatEater podcast!
  • greenwing teal
    Jim from Federal Cartrige. Cal Minnesota also passed a bill to take 3/16 of a penny go into outdoor fund. Like Missouri. We passed this about 15 years ago. It’s called Minnesota clean water act

  • TeavisM
    Your trusted source for news!
    Cal’s week in review is my trusted source for outdoor news and happenings. Unlike some news station, Cal is on our side. The shows content is breathtakingly mediocre to say the least. I can only hope Cal’s week in review will be around to titillate my ear holes for years to come.
  • yankEb
    Great show
    Love the show and I really enjoy the fact that my kids can listen and be inspired to look up the cool animals. Keep the fun facts coming!
  • Jason W Piper

    Old Cal is a national treasure
  • big mike 75
    It's a shame
    Listened to this podcast since the first show use to be a quick show with great info but like so many meat eater shows it's lost it's self with political agendas and so many ads. Sorry to see this happen but can't support this trash anymore.
  • Janky Hank
    Good ole cal
    This is the only podcast I listen to religiously and regularly.
  • Ddouglas502
    Great listen
    Cal is very well articulated but very much relatable at the same time. I love the corny sound effects between topics. The hunting and conservation community has a unique perspective on life, and Cal gets it. He’s one of us. I hope his wisdom can bring others into our circle and do great things for outdoorsman and conservationists. Listen to the segments on legislation and policy and do your part!
  • Beckjhong
    My most listened to podcast
    The format is excellent, the host is knowledgeable, gregarious and has a great sense of humor. Love being able to stay caught up on hunting and conservation issues.
  • 95374
    Not my cup of tea
    I find it boring, and the sound affects annoying, but that’s just my opinion. I prefer the MeatEater podcast mainly because there are more than one person having a informative and funny conversation. But, I still recommend that you try it. Who knows, it might be for you.
  • McBoss97
    Great conservation and outdoors podcast
    If this podcast were a sandwich it would be a really good sandwich best enjoyed on a river or a mountain
  • Marketsavvy
    A liberal hunter, if that’s your style
    Cal’s opinions all slant liberal, and that’s his prerogative. After listening to 20+ episodes, it’s clear in nearly every single one.
  • Nate0779
    Great job cal
  • zebrasz
    Awesome Show
    Congratulations on 100Episodes! Great show today! I love the quick, packed, scripted, format. Every episode is engaging and thought provoking, just listened to the latest episode, engaging stories, what an ending. I appreciate the discussion of the many topics—not all new content, but concise, clear, and thoughtful. The meat eater podcast is like a bunch of cool dudes talking around a campfire for 2 hours. This is a welcome companion, concise, entertaining, and thought provoking, just the facts and quick analysis. I enjoy both shows but for very different reasons. Great Job Cal—on to 3000 episodes
  • Trailhippo
    Pound for Pound Best Podcast
    This show is so full of fascinating conservation info and just fun to listen to, I share it with all my vegan friends and they listen too. Well done y’all!
  • dub26300
    Very informative
    Ocal keep doing your thing great podcast
  • MP 86
    I really want to like this podcast and have tried to listen to it multiple times with the same result. I’m almost 9 minutes into a 25 minute presentation and all I have heard is what Cal is going to do, unrelated sound clips trying desperately to be funny, and advertisements. I like Cal in the meat eater show and podcast, but just stick with Steve man. I really want to like this, but it’s just awful.
  • retro p🔺
    Thanks for the vine
    Done so extremely well.
  • Beeky58
    Enjoy Cal
    Nice quick podcast that is always informative and usually includes a nice chuckle or two.
  • RSF31
    My favorite time of the week
    Slowly working my way through this pot of gold. I listen to the new ones as they come out and then go back to the beginning and work my way through the history of this podcast. Cal is right in my wheelhouse. I love the MeatEater with all my Soul... sorry Steve, this might be better? To hunt or fish with Cal is the headliner on my Bucket List. Thanks for always expanding my knowledge of what my wife calls “useless information”...what does she know?
  • fowlshooter outdoors
    Another great MeatEater crew member podcast
    Cal does a nice job with this podcast. You really cant go wrong with anything those guys produce for outdoor related information you dont have to be a hunter to enjoy this one what so ever
  • Jda8v9
    Your Conservation Daily
    Cal is a natural news anchor and each episode is perfect for gaining some great wildlife and conservation knowledge at a rapid pace. Hilarious and entertaining stories from people in the wildlife community are told using the short, sweet simple method. I think he deserves every bit of the love he gets from fans of the MeatEater team because of his grounded outlook and healthy mindset. He is constantly reporting on the legislative updates that do or may later impact not just hunters, but all of us who enjoy the outdoors, and he encourages everyone to participate in our republic duty to keep fighting for conservation, public access and the welfare of the habitat. The two essential characteristics of a perfect podcast are that it makes for a great way to pass the time and that it inspires you to take an active role in learning more about the subject matter beyond the listening experience. This one does a lot of both.

    A breath of fresh air.
    You do not have to be a hunter to love this podcast. I thoroughly enjoy this enlightening, lighthearted and informative weekly show full of puns any dad joke aficionado can appreciate. This show is a great example of how hunters and non hunters can find common ground in worshiping and protecting nature, public lands, and the environment all while learning the most fascinating recent discoveries in science as it relates to our natural world. - A non-hunter
  • bowhunting1
    Always a good listen
    Short, sweet, to the point. Interesting information from around the science and conservation world.
  • BluegrassOutdoorsman
    “Thanks, I hate it!” Lol
    It’s my favorite 30ish minutes every Sunday.
  • alaskan investigator
    Can Cal stop the political commentary?
    Loved this podcast, but it slowly turned into “here’s my update on my dog” and “here’s me complaining about Trump”. This was a great non-partisan podcast about hunting and conservation. I subscribed and the people I work with, and the people I’m friends with all subscribed. Loved hearing about conservation and how to help. Now I don’t listen because it is slowly turning into Cal talking about how bad Trump and his policies are.
  • MichaelCrawford89
    Politics in - Listener Out
    2x weeks in a row now Cal has brought up the “Capitol Riots”. I’ll have to go back but I can’t recall a single word on the constant rioting across the country all of 2020. Going to bring up Native Americans upset at Biden’s new executive orders? Probably not.
