Join host Robert Forto as he welcomes anthropologist and musher, Lisa Strecker to Mushing Radio.
Strecker, a native of Germany and a PhD student in Anthropolgy at the Univeristy of Alaska-Fairbanks is also a musher and partipiates in a very cool race in Russia. Working in Kamchatka (Russia) for over ten years, there she became interested in local native sled dog keeping and mushing. In 2011 and 2012 she participated in the Kamchatka Traditional Long Trail Race “Beringia”.
“The Beringia is not just a race, it is a great story about dogs, native people and the North of Kamchatka,” says Strecker.

I first met Lisa at Kamchatka Traditional Long Trail Race “Beringia” founder Alexander Pechen’s crib. She turned to be a really determined person to learn dog sledding less than in an year and prepare herself enough to participate in Beringia and do it again next year. Tough challenge for a common man!
