What Our Listeners Say

  • Right now my favorite podcast!!

  • One episode in and I’m ready to give a five-star review.

  • This podcast sets its sights on you audiobook listeners out there, aspiring to the literary heights of London, Krakauer, and even – in the more gruesome details of this episode’s harrowing survivor’s tale – a Disney-fied McCarthy. That it hits these notes at a time when environmental crises and deregulation threaten all our National Parks makes it an especially poignant reminder of our collective vulnerability in the face of (human) nature.

    Haute Garbage
  • 37 Days in Yellowstone” by the America’s National Parks Podcast presents the truly captivating story of Truman Everts with equal parts tranquility and suspense similar to The Revenant. Listeners are easily engrossed with the narrator’s natural storytelling cadence and a light score underlying the entire episode. The hosts know the story is worthy of cinematic quality, and they achieve that feat easily within its brief 40 minute runtime. America’s National Parks Podcast succeeds in capturing the natural majesty of their subject matter.
