Common Land

Common Land explores the creation stories behind protected areas. In each season of the show, we take a deep dive into the history, science and politics behind the establishment of one particular patch of protected common land. National parks, monuments, conservation areas, national scenic trails - any area that has been granted protected status by government is fair game for exploration on this new documentary style podcast series.

Season one is focused on a National Conservation Area in Idaho that is home to a unique population of birds of prey.
