STORIES

The Working Wild

Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem

Between protected areas and urban centers, there is a zone in the middle where people share the landscape with wildlife. These working farms and ranches represent the working wild, and they are the future of conservation.

 

Through a partnership between Montana State University Extention and Western Landowners Alliance, I am a producer/writer/editor for Working Wild University, a narrative podcast that explores the crossroads of people, wildlife, and working lands conservation to sustain a resilient and connected American West.

 

Operating from the radical center and interweaving different perspectives, we guide listeners down the rabbit hole, always from a place of curiosity, until we find the nuance in what are often polarizing issues. The first season, which explores wolves in the West, will debut across podcast platforms in late 2022.
