    Intro music too loud
    Intro music is much too loud. Have to turn way down, then you have rewind and have listen again to the same loud volume of the music.

    A treat for the ears with every episode!
    Chris and the whole production crew do such an amazing job with every episode! You’ll be taken on a captivating journey around the world to discover about the natural beauty of the earth and all the wonderful creatures that live in it! Chris is a bear guy at heart and hearing his passion for wildlife is such a serotonin boost! Every episode brings a new expert on everything from adorable foxes and lynxes to rattlesnakes or orangutans to Native Americans restoring rivers to their natural state. It’s an amazing journey and I’m here for every episode of it! Living vicariously through this podcast while I’m out in the desert, pining for my home in the Pacific Northwest!

    Part 1 of the Burmese Python Saga
    This is absolutely riveting! I live in Southern California and of course have encountered rattlesnakes on the trail, but being in the neighborhood of these pythons and actively engaging with them is bravery beyond measure! The closet experience to your adventure, Chris, is being present while th problem alligator control came to capture and haul in a live gator on my friend’s dock on Laje Minnehaha outside Orlando. He had flip flops on his feet, which I couldn’t believe when I saw him stroll over to the edge of the lake. We’ll, i he was a second-generation problem alligator collector. I appreciate your shows immensely! Thank you so much!

    Fresh Air for the Ears
    Chris Morgan brings us palpable enthusiasm, engagement and love for the amazing non-human BEINGS and THEIR environment in a way we can all share! And as a Pacific Northwesterner ensconced in an eastern city, and as a human being who’s feet are most often on pavement, a breath of all that is home. I listen to too many podcasts, this is my absolute favorite. Can I also say, I Love the theme music! Thank you Chris -et al!! Check out this wonderful(as in full of wonder) podcast and send support to Chris for his projects and this GREAT podcast!

    Pine martens, who knew?
    Chris! Possibly your best episode yet?!?! Hard to say because they’re all good and I also really loved the recent one on Orcas. I was surprised towards the end of the episode to find out that they are only 3 pounds. Pretty fantastic that such a small creature can have such a big impact on their environment. Pretty fascinating connection between the two creatures; interesting and amazing how the predators success supports the success of its prey!

    Jacque Cousteau of land animals
    Beautiful detailed coverage of animals and the people researching and fighting to conserve them in our modern world. I enjoy listening to your voice and well chosen, poetic even, words you use in the telling. Reminds me of Cousteau. We must fight to keep our wild spaces and wild co-inhabitants of this earth. Please keep sharing. Thank you.

    Two eyed seeing
    I subscribed to this podcast a year ago, but didn’t listen much, until I realized that so many episodes are about my region of the world—the Pacific Northwest. And the episode on two eyed seeing has cemented my appreciation of how Chris Morgan hopes to move through the natural world, as a scientist and as someone who is in love with all things wild.

    A step into nature
    This is a GREAT podcast. Nothing picks me up on my drive to work in the city like a splash of the great outdoors, it makes me look forward to my weekends outside that much more! Keep up the great work 🏕

You’ll be hooked!

    This makes me cry in a good way
    I’m currently sitting at home at 2am crying about owls. This podcast shines a well-needed spotlight on scientists and conservationists that are doing the real work, trying to save the species and ecosystems that they love. And most importantly, it shows how emotional, passionate, and real these people are, which you don’t get to see in research papers and scientific articles that are “objective” and removed from emotion. I also always appreciate podcasts that center Indigenous people and communities.
  • NorthPawsMN
    Wow and thank you
    I love this podcast. I’ve never binged through a podcast at such a rate. I can’t wait for more episodes. I’m very thankful for the teams work on educating all of us and trying to Improve our world. Thank you
  • SaltySuMarie
    Needs more information about the animals in the titles
    I enjoy this podcast but some episodes are frustrating because they don't contain enough information about the animal and TONS of information about the person being interviewed. Kind of a bummer to download and anticipate a podcast that I think will teach me about an animal but I learn about a person instead, more animal facts please! I don’t particularly care how someone found themselves in the field, I just want to know about the creatures they study.

    What the Wild can teach physical therapy
    Same Jennifer D! I’ve now listened to the woodpecker one, bringing the info to my professor who teaches Neuroanatomy (I’m in school for physical therapy) to hear her thoughts on the morphology being the protection for woodpeckers against concussions. I was intrigued by the hyoid apparatus; how the jugular vein is gently pressed to increase blood flow, providing a cushion to soften the blow. I’ve listened to the cougar one and went to buy it but it’s 30$ and that’s a lot for me atm! So maybe later. The plant one I listened to and found they were talking about common facts amongst each other, however I’ve never heard of some of these concepts being on the east coast. I like the questions Chris asks because they’re the same ones I have, very basic and to the point. I’ve visited out west and and familiar with mt rainier, Olympia, and places in Oregon but it helps to hear the backstory.

    Great podcast full of interesting animal facts
  • FlameTale
    Friendly suggestion
    Hi! I love this podcast so much! Its amazing how people can help animals and they story’s they have. I do wish that you would site your sources because my mom doesn’t like it when I share the things I leaned. She is a bit over protective... I do think that other listeners would also enjoy hearing sources. (Sorry if the wording is a bit awkward this is my first time writing a review)
  • Klmallelly
