Our friend Stefan van Norden discovers compelling stories about people connecting themselves and others to the natural world in which we live. Over the course of the past two years, he has interviewed a remarkable collection of luminaries across a range of human endeavor. Stefan’s guests reflect deeply on topics ranging from the famous gardens of Monticello and Brandywine to portraying nature in paint from the confines of a prison cell. From fly fishing to homesteading to the Appalachian Trail to poetry and philosophy in nature, you can hear thought-provoking conversations from people viewing life on Earth through focused and sometimes unexpected lenses. Each reminds us that we are part of nature.
