A one-on-one conversation led by journalist Travis Barrett.

George A. Smith is a full-time writer, focusing on hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities, current events and legislative issues, book reviews, and travel. George, who was the executive director of the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine for 18 years, writes monthly columns for The Maine Sportsman magazine and a weekly editorial-page column for the Morning Sentinel and Kennebec Journal, and has been honored with awards from the Maine Press Association. In 2014, Islandport Press published his book of columns about Maine, “A Life Lived Outdoors.” George has also written openly and courageously since January 2018 about his illness, ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Travis Barrett covers sports for the Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel, including high school soccer, hockey and lacrosse, as well as local auto racing. An award-winning sports writer, he returned to Maine in 2005 after covering professional and college beats in Rhode Island.
