David Michael Canterbury (born September 19, 1963) is a survival expert who co-starred on the reality television show Dual Survival for two seasons (2010–11) which aired on the Discovery Channel .  He is also an author, publishing Bushcraft 101 in 2014 (which made The New York Times Best Seller list ),  Survivability for the Common Man (2011), and Advanced Bushcraft (2015). In 2015 Canterbury co-starred in a survival series called Dirty Rotten Survival , which aired on the National Geographic Channel .
This season the duo hosting the show is familiar to the audience from the previous installment, where they were paired with Grady Powell. Combat veteran EJ Snyder and survival expert and hunter Jeff Zausch will brave the extreme challenges together as a team. The current chapter takes the two to Louisiana coastal swamps, savannah in the south of Brazil, and caverns in the Georgian Caucasus mountains, among other places. Besides the rugged terrain and immediate dangers there are also the difficulties of interpersonal communication that make the experience even harder to get through.
Eventually, Lundin revealed more about why he was fired. “It’s shocking to me that Discovery would treat anyone in this manner,” he wrote. “Programming of this nature must be produced and marketed in a responsible manner with the highest level of regard for the safety and health of the hosts, production personnel, and members of the viewing public. I have shared this message with them many times. Failure to observe this standard could have tragic consequences that, with proper precaution, can be avoided. There can be no compromise when dealing with people’s lives.”
