Back On the Air (Sort Of . . .)

By , April 16, 2015

Sometime in November 1993 I signed off the air, ending a 16 year career in radio broadcasting.

This afternoon or tomorrow, I’ll return to the air . . . sort of.

Last week I shared a very pleasant conversation with Michael Foust of the Off The Grid News podcast.

Of course I found it pleasant—he’d called to ask me to talk about myself and my family’s life here on our “homestead.” For about an hour I answered his questions about what it’s like to live where and how we do.

We distilled the essence of our Web site and blog into 50 minutes of air time. The resulting podcast will probably not reveal anything new to regular readers of this blog, but I hope it’ll be interesting listening.

I’m told you’ll find it on the Off The Grid News Website, on their Weekly Radio Show page.

Please note that my appearance on their podcast does not mean that I endorse or agree with other interviewees or topics appearing on Off the Grid News. Enjoy!

    Hi Mark,

    Enjoyed your interview on Off the Grid and your blog.

    Nice pictures of the wildlife. I really relate to your comment about trying to photograph the local wildlife as I’m more inclined to run away than to try and get that great picture.

    We’re “homesteading” in the Interior where conditions are very different from what you’re familiar with. I’m glad that people do get to hear “REAL” stories from “REAL” Alaskans as we’ve found that people are getting some really strange ideas about Alaska from the “so-called” reality shows on TV.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for checking us out, Suejean! I agree with you. We field far too many questions from people who are convinced that the television’s representation of Alaska is our reality. Hard to shake that conviction!
