It takes a village to make this podcast come to life. The insidiousness of the internalization of the hero story, the individuation of capitalism, that we can do it alone– when the truth is we can't. The real force of change will come from humility, curiosity, and the bravery to accept our wounds, and those of others. Deep, brave relationship is the antidote to the consumerism, the loneliness, and the divisions that capitalism feasts on. We wanted to speak aloud that we believe in this medicine, that we live into it, and that we want to share it with you.

In 2014, founder and host Ayana Young, found herself overwhelmed by the realities of the Anthropocene, this climactic era defined by human. Through her yearning to break through the denial and complacency of modern civilization she birthed this weekly conversational podcast.
With a sound footing in research, in depth intersectional analysis and the visionary thinkers of today, we present you with the culmination of our hearts and souls: For The Wild podcast.
The amount of time, effort and energy dedicated to curating each episode as a piece of art, as an evergreen dialogue and as a sign to future generations says, “we were here, we cared and we were doing something about it.”
This kind of education matters. It is the footing of our generative movement building. We want to continue to nourish our growing community with this content and we need your help. Our collective needs to raise funds to continue doing this work in a good way.
Each week we host visionaries, scientists, land-defenders, indigenous leaders and movement builders of today, who are forging a regenerative way forward. Since its inception four years ago, For the Wild Podcast has blossomed into a powerful platform for critical discourse and coalition-building among allies committed to social justice and liberation, wilderness conservation, indigenous sovereignty, ecological renewal, and the dissolution of human supremacy.
