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.

Great non-biased podcast

Provided all views of wilderness management and the ways forests have been managed and possibly ways to manage them in the future.

One of the Best I Have Ever Heard

Excellent podcast. Always interesting, very informative, and presented with a clear reverence for both nature and for the people who cared for this land long before Europeans came to it.
