Wild Thing: Various Seasons


Critic Rating

Wild Thing is a podcast about the strange and unusual things that capture our imaginations. It’s about the relationship between science and society. It’s about wild places, wild people, and wild ideas. Because whether it’s seeking out Bigfoot, in season one, or gazing skyward to look for extraterrestrial life in season two, the search for the unknown helps us better understand ourselves. Each week, host Laura Krantz takes us through the latest chapter, which builds on previous ones, so it’s best to start listening with Episode 1 of each season. New episodes are released on Thursday mornings.
