Necessary and relevant

If I could give this podcast a higher rating, I would. As someone who works for a federal land agency, it has been incredibly enlightening to learn about the history of environmentalism through the lens of diverse and unapologetic perspectives. Even if you aren’t an environmentalist, this podcast challenges the ways in which we think and relate to the natural world. I am always left wondering how much I don’t know after each episode.
