Sturgeon Spearing, Lefse Making and Diet Pills | Podcast Episode 3
In this edition of the podcast we wrap up the Holidays by making one last batch of Lefse with my mom, and take a look at the history of lefse making. We also venture into the world of “Sturgeon Spearing”, a popular winter sport in a few of the northern states. We will talk with a man who has been spearing sturgeon since he was a small child: my dad. He shares some memories of the sport and what drives people to it today. We’ll also explore the world of diet pills. With weight loss on the minds of many right now, some turn to methods outside of diet and exercise hoping for a “quick fix”, but how much of a danger are they putting their bodies in? All that and more on the podcast.
