Pressroom Podcast: Tales from the woods with Sam Cook

News Tribune outdoors reporter Sam Cook

You've probably read a story or two of his before. And if you are like Pressroom Podcast hosts Brady Slater and Christa Lawler then you may be wondering, "How does he do it?"

How does News Tribune outdoors reporter Sam Cook just embed himself in people's hunting shacks for a weekend every fall and come out with stories that resonate with just about everyone in the Northland?

Well this week he tells us how he does that, how it's not as easy as it may seem and how he keeps the material fresh every year even though the subject is inherently the same.

What we are into this week: Getting the hunting cabin ready, The HBO series “The Deuce,” and “The Vietnam War: A film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick” on PBS.

Tune in every week to hear Duluth News Tribune reporters Brady Slater, Christa Lawler and Tom Olsen talk about current Duluth and Northland happenings. You can email us at, call our podcast line at 218-382-NEWS or follow us on Facebook. The podcast is produced by Samantha Erkkila.
