West Obsessed: Travel stories, far and wide

The staff of High Country News discuss the places that make us feel small.

 

In a typical issue of High Country News, we are primarily concerned with the facts and forces that shape the American West: the landscapes, water, people and wildlife that make this region unique. In the annual travel issue, however, we take a different tack. In this episode of West Obsessed, we imagine the region as though we were new to it, and in doing so, we see it with fresh eyes.

“West Obsessed” is an occasional audio series produced in collaboration with KVNF community radio in Paonia, Colorado, where the editors and writers of High Country News discuss stories about the American West and why they matter. Subscribe to the podcast on: Google PlayiTunesSoundcloudStitcher
