Great start!

First season was fantastic. Informational and easier to listen to. However, second season trailer sounds like the narrator is trying to use a deeper voice than he naturally has. I dearly hope this isn’t how he’s going to sound the rest of the season.

Awesome

Wow. This podcast is very well done. As a firefighter it is accurate. More people need to listen and understand that fire is good for our ecosystems. This gets into the science and the social side of things while highlighting a single (large) fire in Oregon. Thanks for another great podcast REI.

Started listening by immersion

I finally started listening to this while on vacation. I was laying in my tent, on the side of a mountain, in the Peruvian Andes. The wind was blowing and nearby farmers were practicing their time old traditions of slash and burn. The air was filled with the smell of burning vegetation.

Between the gentle howl of the wind, the smell of burning vegetation, and the storytelling I was immersed and hooked. However, you don’t need all your senses stimulated to thoroughly enjoy this series.
