Gather around for campfire stories with the MeatEater crew as they share sixteen harrowing true tales of survival, grit, and misfortune in the great outdoors—an immersive audio experience from the host of the long-running Netflix series and top-ranked wilderness podcast. 
In Campfire Stories: Close Calls, Steven Rinella invites seasoned hunters, anglers, adventurers, and outdoor professionals to share their tales of perilous adventures in the natural world, from run-ins with black bears and grizzlies to bad falls and severe hypothermia.
With humor and heart, the storytellers describe how they survived disastrous encounters with weather, wildlife--and even a criminal cartel. Whether set in urban forests or atop remote Alaskan peaks, the tales in Campfire Stories: Close Calls are rich with lessons on how to stay safe in nature, delivered in a conversational tone that conjures the feeling of sitting around a campfire sharing adventure stories with friends.

Campfire Stories: Close Calls features tales from MeatEater crew members Steven Rinella • Janis Putelis • Brody Henderson • Garret Smith • Seth Morris • Maggie Smith and Edbo Genet • with additional stories by Andy Bergin • Buck Bowden • Chad Converse • Jerry Dunlop • Greg Fonts • Jake Grzyb • Sam Lawry • Greg Litzinger • Joe and Joey Nowicki • Alex Reynaud • Thad Robison • Bobbie Scopa • and Avery Shawler.

Great Listen, this is a high quality production from the meat eater crew. The fact they have people telling their own stories really adds to the effect.
