About Us


Broken Line

The Broken Line Podcast is the brainchild of Patrick Olson and Aaron Eickhorst. This podcast is targeted toward the outdoor/ hunting and fishing enthusiasts and the conversations that usually take place amongst that group of people. We cover topics that are local (Bemidji, MN), regional (northern MN) state wide and some national subjects. This is bar/bait shop banter brought to the masses! Together Patrick and Aaron have over 17 years in the outdoor industry from working with companies, and sponsors to filming and editing so many great outdoor adventures. This gives the Broken Line Podcast a great way to banter and chat about the outdoors but in a different point of view because we live in the backside of the outdoors. People wanna know the behind the scenes stuff to shows, companies and the true outdoors. This gives us an advantage over other people in the outdoors, we are a brand new podcast that as of right now controls the ice belt. There is no other podcast in the northland with the style fishing that does what we are doing and we are happy to attack this area. Outdoor ice fisherman, tv show hosts, open water fisherman, and many other great guests that come our way. We do podcasts with tons of guests that live and bread the outdoors, and we are excited to see where it takes off. We cover our podcast in a few ways ; we do an audio podcast that is on various networks from iTunes, soundcloud, google play store and apps. We also film every one of our podcasts giving an opportunity to showcase subjects we talk about, sponsor products, and also some awesome outdoor adventures. Like we stated above we are new and taking off, as of right now we do one podcast a week with random guests thrown in as of right now every other week or so. We are always doing new things to our podcast and in the next season we are going to be adding different fun new things. With our background and working with many different sponsors in our field we are looking for some fun awesome companies to jump on board with us early before we get hardcore into this. We are hoping that you take a chance with us to get crazy and add your great products to our show. Who knows where we will be in a year with how many people we know in the industry we cant wait to see this take off in a positive direction.
