I’ve been listening to the first season, which is about the interface between wolves and ranchers and the challenges of establishing communication, trust, and understanding among people with different values, needs, and ways of life. I really appreciate how they’re taking on this hot-button issue and doing it in such a way that everyone can relate. It’s great that they’re doing it from the perspective of, how do we find common ground, how do we listen to each other, how do we stop fighting and instead find solutions. Great job!

This podcast is excellent! I am continually impressed with the fair and nuanced presentation of a very complicated issue. There is no right or wrong perspective on this issue, and it’s refreshing to see a podcast meet the complexity head on.

This is a refreshing program in its narratives, interviews with rural stakeholders invested in land/ wildlife stewardship and practical solutions for deterring wolves from depredation. These challenges that rural landowners encounter are largely unknown by urban wildlife advocates and conservationists. It’s very well done. I am looking forward to more podcasts from this collaboration for land stewardship and therefore wildlife stewardship.
Great podcast!

Very well done podcast that thoughtfully presents multiple viewpoints on an issue that people have very strong opinions on. If you tend to be very strongly on one side or the other, it’s a good opportunity to learn about the other side’s perspective. I discovered this podcast because of the wolf topic, but having listened to it I would definitely listen to other topics/seasons!
