    The Language of Rocks: Geology and Dinosaurs in Wyoming‘s Bighorn Basin - Episode 7

    Wyoming is a geologist's paradise, but you don’t have to be one to enjoy the geologic wonders that Wyoming offers. Just driving through the state gives us spectacular views of badlands, layered rock formations, faults and canyons. In this episode, geologist and Wyoming native Erik Kvale imagines a Jurassic era road trip through the Bighorn Basin. We also learn about the history and geologic importance of Medicine Bow WY, and are introduced to the Black Footed Ferrets once thought to be extinct, who are now being repopulated in the nearby Shirley Basin.

    Wide Open Spaces - Episode 6

    Wide Open Spaces - Episode 6

    When you fall in love with Wyoming, it's often because of the wide open spaces we're known for. This episode highlights outdoor recreation in our state; the effects we have on the natural world, and how it affects us. I interview Dr. Abigail Sisneros-Kidd and we learn about the town of Wapiti. Then I talk about an animal of which Scott Weidensaul said, "Before the East was logged, tamed and farmed...it, too, was the home of a creature the color of wheat that the Shawnee called wapiti." Join me to learn more!

Rich and Detailed Accounts from off the Beaten Path

Carla is an excellent host who walks her listeners down a new backroad of Wyoming in each episode. Just like the state, each episode explores a diverse range of topics connected by a common theme. This podcast can serve as a great intro to Wyoming for outsiders, or a deep dive into the rich history and culture of the state for people like me who have lived here for more than 30 years.
