    Ep. 81 | Cougars: The Shadows of Yellowstone with Jack Rabe

    Ep. 81 | Cougars: The Shadows of Yellowstone with Jack Rabe

    Today, we’re sitting down with wildlife biologist and Yellowstone predator expert, Jack Rabe. Jack grew up in northern Ohio hunting and fishing on Lake Erie with his father. When it came time to pick a major, Jack decided to study wildlife sciences at The Ohio State University. Upon graduation day, he received a phone call asking if he could drive 26 hours across the country to join the Yellowstone Wolf Project. Without hesitation, he said yes, grabbed his degree, and headed west. Jack has been working on Yellowstone’s Wolf and Cougar Projects since 2017 and is now a PhD student at the University of Minnesota studying the impact each major carnivore has on the area’s infamous elk population.

    Ep. 78 | May’s Sample Collection: Pygmy Sloths, Antarctica, Mexico’s Whales, and the Creation of Rewildology

    In this episode, I’m trying something new! I listen to a lot of podcasts (shocker, right?) and recently I heard a fantastic monthly recap episode on The Tim Ferriss Show. I absolutely loved the idea and decided to bring you all a similar style episode with samples of each of the month’s interviews. That way if you were on the fence about listening to an episode, then you can hear a taster here and decide if you want to listen to the whole thing.
    Since this is brand new out of the ethers, please let me know what you think of these Sample Collections! Reach out on Instagram or Facebook, @ Rewildology, or email me at hello@rewildology.com.

    Ep. 77 | Bonus Episode: Why Does Rewildology Exist? Stotra’s Interview of Brooke for Macalester College

    It’s been a hot second since I’ve released a bonus episode for you all, and I thought now was a great to time share a special interview that I did with Episode 48 guest, Stotra Chakrabarti, PhD for his conservation class at Macalester College. Stotra loved my unconventional approach to conservation and invited me to speak about why I went to such lengths to create a podcast from scratch. He asked me several questions about my story, the journey that led to launching Rewildology, and advice for anyone else considering going outside of the confines of academia, or their current bubble, to pave their own path in this field.

Wild Host, Rewilded Planet

Brooke is an incredible podcast host who is so fully of passion (and a drink or two) that you’re going to feel like you’re listening to a friend. Each episode features a guest or guests talking about the various facets of animal conservation, and also sharing incredible travel stories. Brooke goes beyond just the conservation topics, though, digging deep into the person she interviews and sharing unique and interesting stories from their lives! Pour yourself your favorite drink and settle in for a great listen!
