Few places have come to symbolize the rapidly-changing American West quite like the valley of Jackson Hole, Wyoming—grizzlies still graze by the roadside, elk eat farm-raised grass, and, all the while, service workers, ranchers, ski bums, and billionaires also jostle to find their piece of paradise.

For millennia, the human and non-human residents of Jackson Hole have co-existed in a complex struggle for the good life. But what is the state of this balance these days? And how have these relationships been shaped by recent changes in resources, demographics, and priorities of our communities?

Yonder Lies, a new podcast from KHOL 89.1 and Northern Rockies Conservation Cooperative Researchers, is your invitation to dive into the nitty-gritty of Jackson Hole. Hosted by writers and researchers Hannah Habermann and Jesse Bryant, Yonder Lies shares intimate stories of the people, conflicts, and institutions that have made this place what it is today.

    Indigenous Pasts and Presents (Pt.2)

    Indigenous Pasts and Presents (Pt.2)

    In this episode, we hear the perspectives of three influential leaders from three different tribes: Jason Baldes (Eastern Shoshone), Lynnette Grey Bull (Northern Arapahoe & Hunkpapa Lakota), and Len Necefer (Navajo).

    Each will offer their perspective on the through-line from past to present and into the future. We will notice that in many ways this line finds its way following efforts of education, coalition building, and healing.

    Indigenous Pasts and Presents (Pt.1)

    Indigenous Pasts and Presents (Pt.1)

    The stories of Native Americans have long been erased in tellings of the history of the United States and in histories of Jackson Hole. 

    In the first of two episodes, we ask: How do we and how should we understand this violent and complicated history? What is true and what is false? And where does the legal relationship between the United States and North American Tribes stand today?

    How can we move forward in telling a more accurate story of this landscape today?

    Grand Teton National Park

    Grand Teton National Park

    The controversial creation of Grand Teton National Park is the beginning of the culture that still dominates Jackson Hole today: outdoor recreation and aesthetic experience of nature.

    In this episode, we ask: What is there to do when the same activities that allow people to enjoy the land are also leading to its degradation? Should wealth equate to decision-making power in regards to environmental management? And how do we combat the tendency for cultures of leisure to become cultures of apathy?

For anyone who loves the Tetons

As a user of the beautiful Tetons, this podcast is a must-listen. It means a lot to me to know the history of the land where I spend recreational time. Jesse and Hannah’s careful research and thoughtful inclusion of other voices makes the history and topical issues surrounding the Tetons digestible and informative. I can’t wait for more episodes!

A glimpse into so many facets

Thank you for exploring the questions that many of us are thinking, but haven’t had a forum within which to ask. And I love the visceral nature of your exploration...sights, sounds, smells...
