In this episode of The Overland Bonfire, we dive into a deck of cards from our friends at the Radio Chatter Game. The Radio Chatter Game not only provides a regular 52-card deck, but each card also provides a conversation prompt that's designed to spur conversation with your travel companions around the campfire or over the radio while on the trail. We love the idea and decided to incorporate it into one of our podcast episodes.

Catching up with Rodney Dewson (aka Overland_Medic) - Overland Bonfire Podcast November 16th, 2023
In this episode of the Overland Bonfire, we catch up with our friend Rodney Dewson, aka Overland Medic. Since he was last on the show, he's been busy with his regular Special Operations Firefighter and Paramedic duties, but he's also launched a new project. Under the Overland Medic brand, he's outfitting a number of purpose-built first aid kits that are designed to take care of minor medical needs and trauma situations. Rodney uses his nearly 20 years of emergency medical knowledge to build kits that are useful and full of high-quality gear. Of course, we also explore a few tangents. We're nothing if not consistent.

To top it all off, we asked you to send us your favorite jerky brands, and you all came through in a big way!Check out the full episode to see our breakdown of our favorite beef jerky.

Overlanding and Ham - Overland Bonfire Podcast August 30th, 2023
Overlanders love ham. At least the team at BROG loves ham. And it also seems that overlanders love HAM. So why not have a podcast where we discuss both!?! After a short digression, we talk about getting your HAM license, our favorite radios, and other in-rig communication options. Plus, we take a creative route in explaining what's legal and what isn't when it comes to radio licenses. If you're looking to dive into the HAM world, check out our buddy Thomas. He has a great site, https://qrper.com/ , that covers all kinds of radio-enthusiasts topics. If you have any topic suggestions for the Overland Bonfire Podcast, please let us know!
