Hello, Nature host, Misha Euceph, didn’t know about the national parks until she turned 21. But after an experience in Joshua Tree and watching 12 hours of a national parks documentary, she sets out on a road trip to answer the question: if the parks are public, aren’t they supposed to be for everyone? In this podcast, she goes out to see America to tell a new story of our national parks.
 
These are the stories of impossible encounters with impossible creatures in the wildest corners of North America.

These are the people who took a hard left. Traded in their chips and changed their minds – all in the name of fresh air. And to get inside the minds of these enterprising misfits, we are letting them interview each other. Each week, teacher becomes student, interviewee becomes interviewer, grasshopper becomes… bigger grasshopper.
