Women’s Outdoor News Podcast Episode #1: Bringing Up Baby — Outside!

In this inaugural episode of Women’s Outdoor News podcast (The WON), Barbara Baird and Stacy Bright discuss the news, reviews and stories from the past week — featuring women who hunt, fish, shoot and enjoy outdoor lives of adventure. With a theme of “bringing up baby — outside,” Barbara interviews Mia Anstine, who is a columnist, editor, outdoor guide, outfitter and more, about how she’s been raising her daughter for 16 years to enjoy the outdoors.
