    Love it
    Not only is this podcast educational but it’s highly entertaining at the same time. It’s my favorite listen. I have gone though every episode and it has changed my mind on things, taught me things and made me laugh a lot.

    I’m done with meat eater
    Podcast isn’t what it used to be , the same with the show , trivia use to be good until cal and Brody just want to argue over Spencer ….. starting to think Matt rinella was right the whole time ! Bear grease is great tho

    Keep the outro
    For starters I love the podcast, the content and the the people involved. I also come to love the terrible outro music, now it’s something I look forward to hearing!!
  • jenisonwild
    two thoughts
    1.) the podcast title of the “sensation” with the marlin shoulda been “the ol’ boys and the sea” 2.) can you stop the trivia on this podcast time line thing? like let it be elsewhere. it’s not good. or at least it’s for a diff niche part of the market. Same with this country life. feels like false advertising when i get a notification

    Amazing pod cast
    I was listening to your current episode and you said your punt gun is about done. I just watched Kentucky ballistics on YouTube he just finished one and shot some crazy things with it. Would love to see you guys collaborate.

    More than just hunting!
    This podcast is more than just hunting! I mean there is hunting talk, but historical, geological, current events, conservation, and all kinds of stuff. If you love the outdoors, this is a podcast for you!
  • Idaho Forester
    Worst episode yet
    The latest episode was awful. For crying out loud, get the technology and how you’re going to interact with it figured out BEFORE you record. Too many people in the room, no planning for how the discussion will flow, Steve blathering on, etc. I’ll unsubscribe and check back in a few months.

    Love the podcast but that outro song….
    It’s God awful. Sounds like a dying cow getting rung thru a meat grinder; especially when it comes on at full blast for some reason (that’s not due to my volume). Seems like there used to be way more discussions with researchers and others working towards conservation, now it’s kinda fanboy for country musicians and their own products. Would love to see more about fishing. Been lacking a bit since the end Bent. Also, This Country Life? Horrible, god awful.

  • ssummers2013
    Great podcast
    Love what you guys(and girls) do, love the podcast! I’ve listened to nearly every episode and the fish shack ones are always my favorite. I just listen to episode 452 (part of it, I had to turn it off) and it is definitely the worst one. Not really sure why it was produced and aired. But it’s Steve’s show, keep doing what y’all do.
  • Lungbuster1121

    Best Podcast
    Steve, Janis, Ryan, and the team at MeatEater deliver! Educational, thought provoking, and often times hilarious - this show really helps me forget a long and grueling commute. Looking forward to the trivia board game!
  • Gabby.N.M
    Great for all listeners
    I am not a hunter, but I’ve learned so much about animals, conservation, food, and the world we live in. 🌎
  • Askghv
    Episodes skip
    Over the last several months the functionality of the episodes has gone down the drain. Skips, jumps back or won’t start up where you left off. Something changed and it needs to be fixed.
  • heheheheheuheheue

    DAYS of great content to listen to😄
    My dad introduced me to Steven rinella, first by his show, then by the books, and now this podcast. I listen to this podcast for hours, and I liked his material so much I bought one of his books, and read some of the other books my father collected. This podcasts brings very wise people, interesting and trending topics, and lots of facts and interesting information. I listen to him during yard work, cooking, and many other occasions. Steven rinella will always be something to enjoyably accompany me :)

    Best Hunting Podcast. Full Stop
    The MeatEater crew talk about the best topics ever, period, for a hunting podcast. It is a large part of why I hunt. Didn’t discover I was a hunter till later in life, but thank God I found it.
  • Quailman 1
    I’m glad the post i made the last time became of good use for you. That’s all I intended. Didn’t mean to offend anyone i made a jokingly . Ha ha. Steve, cal. P.S.don’t stand in a bucket of it. Love the show. almost listen through every podcast on the net work great stuff informative.
  • tsm990
    I have been burning my way through the meateater podcast for the last year. It awesome to see how dedicated the whole crew is to conservation. Thank you guys for what you do.

    The Liberal Redneck
    Overall I love your podcast. I gave it a one star review with the hopes of someone actually reading this. Episode 425 The Liberal Redneck is the concern. You have always tried to stay politically neutral until that episode. To give someone that attacks well over half your audience a platform was sad and shows the influence behind the scenes. Stick to hunting and conservation, stay out of politics, especially with people that are twisting facts to attack one political side. Pretty sad. Also if you are going to be so conservation minded, maybe get First Lite manufacturing out of China, the biggest contributor to environmental destruction in the world. I will not buy it as long as it is made in China as you are putting profits over your morals.

    I listen to this podcast religiously. All of them. The best content out there for the people that love the outdoors. Thank you for producing awesome insight to the lives that so many people love and live for.
  • Chuff an
    My favorite podcast
    These podcasts are loaded with information. I feel like I learn something new every week. The normal show and trivia show are both amazing.
  • Gotta eat 99
    Hooked on meat eater
    So much info. I listen to this at work and while stuck in traffic. I almost look forward to traffic jams, because I get more time to listen!! Keep it up fellas. Priciate ya!
  • Meximo54
    Not much hunting talk anymore; anti oilfield also
    Used to love this podcast. Once they started not talking much about hunting, I started losing interest. And then when they came out opposing the oilfield and drilling in ANWR, without even doing any research, I lost all interest in this show. Looks like I haven’t missed much judging by the reviews. I do still occasionally listen to the older episodes when they talked hunting
  • Lipslewinski
    Don’t read your own writing
    Sorry Steve, but the reading aloud of a section of your book was bad, I mean 8th grader reading his book report in front of the class, bad. Hire a professional voice or stick to the written word. And yes, I dig all that Meateater does and represents. ~Andy

    Episode 437 JACK FREAKING CARR
    Probably my favorite episode yet. He is so intriguing. I have never watched terminal list or read his book but pre ordered his next book while listening to this episode. BTW, that is really a dude sing the so g at the end? I could have sworn it was Ol Aunt May not a man.
  • Flying Lead
    Two things come to mind when I think of great organizations. Consistently producing a high quality product and the integrity of the individuals in the organization. The Meateater products & team are examples of this. The content is presented in a manner that is interesting to individuals inside and outside the outdoors enthusiast community. The entire suite of shows & people demonstrate these qualities each week. Thank you for bringing a new look to the outdoor community!
  • Bforby
    Love it
    All I listen to is podcasts and this is one of my go tos.
  • pinkacer

  • allfreakinnicknsmesrgone
    They make learning fun!
    Seriously though: thoughtful, knowledgeable, and curious host and regulars; great guests; fun topics; serious topics, and laughs. All with an obvious passion for, and commitment to wild things and places.
  • 31dav31
    Thank you! your team is amazing.
    Mike Kunz is a perfect example of science is doomed, till we have a change of guard. Please hang it up and let the new generation figure out what really happened not your 100 year old speculation. Thank you meateater!
  • Ztrippin
    Get new people.
    Whoever runs your trivia. Is an absolute Moron. His facts are wrong. Sound is too loud.

    Ruination of Game Show
    As a long time viewer and listener, it’s sad that Steve makes the fun and educational game show hard to listen to. His attempt at playing the heel comes off as petulance.
  • Ameateater FaN
    Losing interest quickly
    Between the incessant ads, Steve’s constant know it all attitude, the lack of compelling guests, and poor topics of discussion, I’m quickly finding myself turning off the Podcast I used to enjoy most. Go back to Steve and Janis talking (without useless yes-men in the background) to people who were genuinely interesting. Did I mention there were too many ads?
