In this episode, Mark and Curtis are at the University of Saskatchewan to discuss the growing problem of invasive wild pigs in Canada. Topics covered include leaky farms, the difference between wild boar versus wild pig, whether hunting is helping control wild pigs, where wild pigs are found in Canada, whether wild pigs can survive in the Yukon, countdown to 1 million square kilometers, whether sounder is a maritime term or not, what might be on your spinach, what a wild pig can do in 108 days, whether time is running out to eradicate wild pigs in Canada, and our favorite Ryan Brook quotes.
