Episode 94: Ticks!!!

In Episode 94, Brian Anderson (aka “The Tick Terminator”) joins the show to educate us on your biggest danger in the backcountry – TICKS!!!  In the podcast, we discuss the tick lifecycle, when and where they are most likely to find you, how to prevent ticks, and what to do if one embeds in your skin.
