Host of the Top-Rated Podcast & TV Series, "MeatEater"

Steven Rinella is an outdoorsman, author, and host of the top-rated podcast and TV series, "MeatEater." Steven has spoken to a wide range of audiences about his life as a modern-day hunter-gatherer. With humor and irreverence, he discusses the hunting lifestyle, wild game, the ethics of hunting, and the spiritual need for wilderness. His talks are punctuated with stories of amazing and sometimes absurd adventures, such as getting poisoned by wild mushrooms, charged by a grizzly, bowled over by a moose, and nearly crushed by a wild boar that fell from the sky under very strange circumstances in the central highlands of the Philippines’ Luzon Island. 

Rinella’s books include "The Scavenger's Guide to Haute Cuisine; American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon;" "Meat Eater: Adventures from the Life of an American Hunter;" and the 2-volume series "The Complete Guide to Hunting, Butchering, and Cooking Wild Game." His titles have been awarded the Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Award and the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award, and "American Buffalo" was named one of the best fifty non-fiction books of the year by the San Francisco Chronicle. Rinella's writing has also appeared in a wide variety of popular publications, including Glamour, Men’s Journal, Outside, New Yorker, the New York Times, Salon.com, O the Oprah Magazine, Field and Stream, and the annual anthologies Best American Travel Writing (2003, 2010, 2014, and 2016) and Best Food Writing (2005, 2013). He is a frequent guest on radio and TV news programs such as CNN’s "American Morning," "Fox and Friends," and the NPR programs "All Things Considered" and "Weekend Edition," where he discusses the hunting lifestyle.
