"The only one on that list we watch is Mad Men. What the hell is Swamp People?" - Josh


I grew up hunting and fish. My dad brought home great big snapping turtles which he and Howard Austin butchered and we ate. There were 6 of us kids so my dad was always looking for sources of protein to feed us. Dad grew a great big garden and there were always plenty of vegetables. He also raised rabbits when we lived in Bonfield, Illinois.

So Swamp People is a show about people who live and exist on the Louisiana Bayou, hunting and fishing and shrimping, and they also hunt alligators that they sell for their meat and their hides. The show follows these people around in their boats as they set traps to catch gators and they shoot the gators and haul them into the packing plants and sell them. It's a lot about who got the biggest gator and their lives.

It's a kind of life that I think I would have liked. I like guns and hunting and fishing and I've been shrimping and I like killing animals and butchering and eating them. I've done all those things.

The difference is though that I've lived all over the United States and lived in fairly large cities and I went to college and I've got a couple of degrees.

But if things had been a little different? I could have enjoyed being a "Swamp People."
