Alaskans take DIY food to the extreme. They fill freezers with wild game, fish and berries that they harvest themselves then transform the raw ingredients into hearty meals like Salmon Pot Pie and moose meatballs. Food blogger and Anchorage Daily News Editor Julia O’Malley is testing classic Alaska recipes for a new project called How Alaska Eats.

Note: Before you gather and cook with wild plants and herbs, research their potency and any warnings about the potential affects of overuse.

Governor Mike Dunleavy’s budget proposal would cut more than one and a half billion dollars from state spending in one fiscal year. The Governor’s plan would also remove municipal taxing authority over oil infrastructure, redirecting millions of dollars currently in local government control to state authority. Will the Governor’s budget put Alaska on firm fiscal ground or drive the state deeper into recession? We’ll ask on the next talk of Alaska.



FROM THE ARCHIVES: Governor Dunleavy, then candidate Dunleavy, was on Talk of Alaska last September and responded to the question of whether he had a number in mind for what an adequate state budget would be and where he would seek to do more cutting.

Should young people today go to a 4 year university or enter the trades? Some students do both: Get a job through a technical program so they can make enough money to support their plan for college. Others find a lifelong career and steady work in welding, carpentry, mechanics or heavy equipment. Is there a best approach? Developing the workforce of tomorrow is our discussion on the next Talk of Alaska.

The decline in seasonal sea ice affects more than just arctic communities. That ice helps regulate world temperatures. Less ice means coastal communities are at risk of rising sea levels and coastal erosion. The decline also makes it harder for arctic residents to travel and hunt the food they depend on. On the next Talk of Alaska, we’ll discuss the latest information on ice conditions and how the people of the arctic are working to adapt to change.
