"The audio journal about getting into the wilderness." For 10 minutes each week, we help you explore and appreciate America's wilderness. Listen to The Wildebeat to explore new places, learn safe and responsible skills, and prepare to get into the wilderness! You don't need to do extreme sports to enjoy nature and being outdoors; anyone can enjoy backcountry activities, such as camping, hiking, backpacking, horseback riding, rafting, kayaking, canoeing, climbing, mountaineering, skiing, or snowshoeing. We're a non-profit, listener-supported educational service of Earth Island Institute. (For a complete audio archive, please visit our web site: www.wildebeat.net.)

This podcast is well produced and provides good info for hiking and camping. The interviews are well done and add to the shows. This is a series you should listen to before going into the great outdoors.
An unparalleled outdoor podcast
There's the WildeBeat and there's everybody else. Steve brings a radio documentarian's approach to his podcast -- interviewing authorities and eliciting first-person accounts on all the major issues affecting people who love to hike and camp. If you adore the outdoors and have 10 or so minutes to spare, this is a can't-miss 'cast.
This is a very professionaly done podcast, regarding wilderness recreation. They are very informative, light and fun. I look forward to every episode.
