America's National Parks Podcast

Enjoy a virtual outdoor adventure with America's National Parks Podcast. This podcast has an eye towards storytelling and "takes you behind the events, people, and nature," that have impacted "the 417 units managed by the National Park Service." The more than 120 episodes come in a variety of formats. Some episodes describe the history and future of specific parks, from King Canyon to the Wild West. Other installments explore broader historical movements (for example, "The Nine," released on June 7, 2020, discusses Brown v. Board of Education and school segregation). Monthly "News from the Parks" episodes provide brief recaps and updates, from park reopening plans during COVID-19 to legislation and funding details. Most episodes are less than 30 minutes long. On the site, readers will find embedded audio and a written synopsis of each episode. Readers can also listen on Apple Podcasts and Google Play.
