Nice. Favorite so far; the hooligan fisherman (mini Xtra Tuf's are so cute!). I always knew those fish as oolichan.

Turns out I will watch anything if the title includes the phrase “midnight Russian dumpling slinger.” (Plus a number of others in this series, all of which I enjoyed.) Thanks.

Nicely done. The one about the artist who lives off grid is very interesting.

So the musk ox farmer is raising them for their fur? I was wondering why someone would farm musk ox, by all accounts I've heard they're real asshole animals.

I've worked through hooligan fisherman, paramotorist and sled dog inheritor so far. These are really terrific. Nice, short, high production value and you learn a little something about not just these folks but about Alaska in each one. Thanks for posting.

After rewatching these, I think my favorite might be the paramotorist.


Also, if anyone is interested I found two behind the scenes blog posts.

As a current resident of Anchorage (and member of the LGBT community), I can say without hesitation that Daphne is both an icon and a near-saint. Highly recommended viewing.
