    Vital Signs

    "Vital signs," like blood pressure and pulse rate, are used in medicine to track human health. Paying attention to the little things can often help us better understand what's going on in the big picture. Scientists can monitor ecological "vital signs," too. In this episode, biologist Andrew Ray shows us that a little creature can tell us a lot about the Yellowstone ecosystem.

    The Value of One Wolf

    The Value of One Wolf

    Wolf researcher Kira Cassidy likes to say that when Rudyard Kipling wrote The Jungle Book in 1894 and included the famous line "For the strength of the Wolf is the Pack and the strength of the Pack is the Wolf," he would have had no idea that over a century later, scientific research would back up his poetic phrase. In this episode, Kira takes us inside the world of the wolf and pulls back the curtain on what it means to be the leader of the pack.

Too quiet

I love the content of this show and all of the history and scientific research occurring in my favorite national park. However, both the host and guests always seem to be whispering. Even with my car volume turned all the way up, I still have difficulty hearing it over the road noise. Improved sound engineering will help the success of this podcast.

Such a great podcast

I will echo what others have written - this is s superb podcast. I am not bothered by the short form as it’s a perfect length to tell the individual stories. I just wish they were coming out with greater frequency. I am already dreading the moment when I’ve listened to the last one.
