An excerpt from TV GUIDE’s Special Report: The Dangerous Side of Survival TV by David Peisner…
On the wall of a tiny wood cabin outside Prescott, Arizona, hangs a large poster of Cody Lundin staring intensely with a thin half-smile. Below him is a quote: “Learn survival skills from an expert.” Lundin was one of the stars of the Discovery Channel series Dual Survival for three and a half of the show’s first four seasons, until he departed abruptly late last year.
He has been a survival instructor, running his Aboriginal Living Skills School, since the early ’90s. This cabin is ostensibly the school’s store, though there’s little for sale beyond some knives, a few magnesium fire-starters, and small tubes of AfterBite.
The TV GUIDE interview is an excellent follow-up to our exclusive interview with Cody Lundin on Survival Entertainment from June 2014.
