Matt Rinella started a podcast to voice his opinions on a problem that many of us experience, but not many talk about. Matt started Hunt Quietly to be a voice, and to give a voice to those who think its getting harder to find hunting spots. But that's not all he is concerned about. Listen to an opinion that you may, or may not agree with!
Dr Sarah Love is a Sports medicine Veterinarian. We talk about all the things we (you and I) don't do with our K9 athletes. Warm-ups cool-downs and stretching.

We also talk about the onset and maintenance of Osteoarthritis, and what we can do about it.
