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.
