About This Show
The Explorist is a podcast about the outdoors: how we change it, and how it changes us. We bring you stories from places where people and the wild collide, and the friction summons something strange and new. Each episode visits the Earth’s weirdest corners, whether that’s in your backyard or in the back of beyond. We’ll even show you how to experience them for yourself.

EPISODE 5: THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT THE WOLF
In 1997, 31 gray wolves were reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park. Today, their descendants roam nearly to the Pacific Ocean — and one of them lives within commuting distance of Seattle. His name is WA75M, and to survive he'll have to navigate the raw wound that divides urban and rural America. We follow ranchers, scientists, conservationists, and journalists to find out what a wild wolf is worth to his new neighbors -- and what that means for wilderness in the modern world.
