An honest podcast about the state of our relationship with wild nature. Renouncing harmful anthropocentric ideals, focusing on true essentials for an adequate life as a human being; and recognizing the indispensability of our tremendously diverse world by establishing a greater sense of place within that world. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ It will host an on-going discussion about the needs of nature, exploring the current environmental crisis, the importance of our reconnection to our wild earth, biodiversity, re-wilding efforts, apex predator protection, the age of exploitation and decline, human nature, neurobiology and more. We will also explore how our day to day lives lead to a continuum of unmindful apathy for the greater ecology in which we live and address the ways we can mend our relationship to nature. A journey to inspire listeners to reconnect with their wild roots. We will explore and share the many ways we can cognitively connect to wild earth every day and bring our minds to a more lasting recognition of our innate connection to this Earth. With a deeply nature-focused and purposefully-driven dialogue, this podcast consists of a mix of formats, including solo-broadcasting, recorded discussions and interviews with other ecologists, naturalists, biologists and environmentally-minded individuals. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ BLOG: www.thewanderingnaturalist.comPATREON: www.patreon.com/wildrootsThis podcast does not use search engine optimization and is not interested in advertising dollars.

    Ep 27: THE RIGHT TO ROAM: A Call to Restore a Stolen Inheritance

    The right to roam is something many American's may not be aware of, yet it is a calling that dwells within the human heart. It is an inheritance which has been stolen, but we can get it back. Listen to find out how.

    DID YOU KNOW?
    In a recent report released on public land access, results revealed that across 13 U.S. western states, over 9.52 million acres (an area larger than New Hampshire and Connecticut combined) is currently landlocked. With over 3 million acres  in Wyoming, 2 million in Nevada and 1.5 million in Montana. If these are all of our lands, then why can't we access them?

    Ep 26: A CHEMICAL PANDEMIC: The Obesogen Effect

    Ep 26: A CHEMICAL PANDEMIC: The Obesogen Effect

    In this episode we speak with Dr. Bruce Blumberg about his revolutionary research on chemicals called “obesogens”. His research reveals startling epigenetic effects of exposure to these hormone-disrupting chemicals in the environment. These chemicals are found in products widely used by many, every-day, and are found even in the food we eat and the water we drink.

    "According to the FDA, findings from studies on the prevalence of these chemicals, explain that these chemicals that have been widely used in nonstick cookware, contact paper, food packaging, cleaning products, and other industrial products have leached into our food and water supply, as well as contaminated our livestock and the sewage sludge used for fertilization. This is a serious problem as these “forever chemicals” are linked to liver damage, certain types of cancers, thyroid disease, infertility, high cholesterol, obesity and several other health conditions."

    Ep 24: ORIGIN OF THE CORONAVIRUS: Understanding Ecological Niches, Zoonotic Diseases and How Humans Cause Epidemics

    Ep 24: ORIGIN OF THE CORONAVIRUS: Understanding Ecological Niches, Zoonotic Diseases and How Humans Cause Epidemics

    Nature is indeed sending us a message. Our response to that message is going to shape humanity. In this Wild Roots episode with renowned science writer/author, David Quammen we talk about the nature of zoonotic diseases, ecology and how human activity is ultimately the cause for epidemics which threatens us all. We also talk about the importance of not demonizing wildlife, protecting biodiversity, the harms of the wildlife trade and more. 

    We are all in this together. And we are the ones who caused it.

    Hoping all of my listeners are well and safe.

Disappointing

I was really hoping that I was going to love this podcast but their focus wasn’t where it should be. They are fostering more separation in our population by continuing to bring their political opinions into their dissemination of information and placing blame on individuals that are not the source of the problem. Not to mention your comment about how you felt that the East Coast people didn’t care as much about wildlife conservation and were surprised to see otherwise was incredibly ignorant of you not to mention offensive and proof of your brainwashing. Do better. Be better.
