47 episodi

A married couple packed up everything from their Chicago home and bought an RV to travel the country full-time, with one goal: to visit as many national parks as possible. With each stop in each park, Brad and Matt Kirouac immerse themselves and the listeners – and the Kirouacs' dog Finn! – in these beautiful, larger-than-life places. They share discoveries about what makes the national parks truly special, from the intimidating wildlife of the Everglades to the cinematic lore of Redwood. It's all that and a dash of what it’s really like to live in an RV full time.

    Introducing: Hello Ranger!

    Introducing: Hello Ranger!

    They say that when one door closes, another one opens. And in our case, we are swinging our RV door open to a new adventure with a new podcast and a whole new way to celebrate the National Parks community we've come to know and love. We're drawing Parklandia to a close and launching Hello Ranger, an independent podcast designed to showcase and celebrate communities within the national parks, and how these places unite us together.
    Find us at the Hello Ranger website and on Facebook, and be sure to join our Facebook group community page, because together we are “United by Nature.”
    Thank you so much for coming along on our journeys for two seasons! We love you and hope you'll follow us into our next chapter.
    Goodbye Parklandia, and Hello Ranger!

    Bonus Episode! Boondocking with Brad: Back to Basics

    Bonus Episode! Boondocking with Brad: Back to Basics

    Maybe the most basic task of the full-time RV life is...living in the RV. And in order to make that transition from our Chicago loft to our new home, we had to do a lot of downsizing. It was not easy and involved a lot of difficult decisions and we had to leave a lot of things we love behind and in storage. In this last installment of Boondocking With Brad, we'll discuss what that process was like and the trade-off between our old brick-and-mortar home and life on the road.

    Bonus Episode! Traveling Eats With Matt: The Maine Course

    Before the pandemic changed literally everything about our day-to-day life, we recorded a series of episodes focusing on the food and drink scenes in a number of cities that we really love. This week, we're talking about Portland, Maine and all of the deliciousness we hope to return to when life returns to normal. Thank you for listening, take care, and wash your hands.

    Bonus Episode! Ecology 101 with Jesslyn Shields

    Bonus Episode! Ecology 101 with Jesslyn Shields

    The world is made up of living and nonliving things that are all hanging out together in different configurations. The stuff that's hanging out together in Yellowstone — wolves and porcupines and Douglas firs and mayflies and geysers and snowstorms — are different than what you'd find in the Everglades between alligators and turkey vultures and sawgrass marsh and microorganisms. And just like with sports or the stock market or your family at Thanksgiving, there are rules of engagement between the stuff in the natural world — no matter what these elements are —  and the study of these rules of engagement is called ECOLOGY. And in this bonus episode, we sit down with our show's researcher Jesslyn Shields to get a crash course in this field of study that literally encompasses the entire world (and beyond).

    Shout Out To The Mangroves At Everglades National Park

    Shout Out To The Mangroves At Everglades National Park

    There’s a lot to see and do in Florida. It’s got Mickey Mouse, South Beach, Harry Potter, Key West, orange juice, and… two of the most terrifying animals, together at last. That’s right, Everglades National Park is the only place on Earth where alligators and crocodiles coexist, and it’s just one of many fascinating facts about this epic national park.  
    Yet as scary as that may seem, it pales in comparison to the horrors of having no WiFi. Everglades is really just a place of pure wonder, excitement, and inspiration, and the fact that gators and crocs happen to both live here is just one of the many unique aspects that make it destination-worthy. We'll climb into a kayak and explore the history and the ecology of this gem of park in our season 2 finale.
