Wonder + Wildness

Chasing wonder on a science guided journey through the natural world in search of meaning, connections, and the courage to hope

Podcasts

One of my favorite sayings is that “science happens not with a ‘Eureka!’, but an ‘Oh, that’s weird…’. Those are the moments The Wild Life wants to explore. The air we breathe, the biggest, the brainless, the shiniest, striped mysteries, penguin knees, fireflies, frogcicles, and everything in between.

The Wild Life is a place for the curious, the adventurous, the hopeful, and the hopeless to discover new knows and unknowns about the natural world and its inhabitants. The Wild Life seeks to bring the traditional naturalist experience into the 21st century by merging immersive storytelling and foley art with technology and creative experiences. It’s an exploration of truth, curiosity, and shared places as we attempt to fill each episode with wonder, connectedness, intrigue, and humor.

We interview esteemed scientists, naturalists, and everyday people alike in hopes of showing that we’re all natural scientists, and we all have within us a level of childlike wonder and geekery that we should wield proudly like a badge of honor.

Class is a new spin-off series exploring all of animal life one class at a time. Each season focuses on a new phylum of life. Each episode, a new class.

Season one began hitting podcast platforms in Spring 2022. It explores the Phylum Porifera which is made up of sponges of all kinds.

These episodes are being produced along with various educational resources such as visuals, slide decks, worksheets, and more! All are free to use and download, and designed with high school and introductory university biology courses in mind.

Want an idea of the style and flavor? Think audio-nature documentary meets Zoology 101 lecture set to an immersive soundscape of pensive music and sound effects.

Immersive 8D Nature Soundscapes for focus, sleep, or meditation.
