Cutting through the noise - one episode at a time. Nature Reliance School was founded in 2006 with the goal of helping people feel safer and have a more enjoyable time outside. Sometimes that looks like an edible plants course, other times a man tracking course for the military. Our podcast is no different. We will cover many topics, with the end-goal being to educate, excite, or enrich your time in the great outdoors. Let us know what you think of our podcast at podcast@naturereliance.org.
