National Parks history podcast

I just binge-listened to season 6 of the American History Tellers podcast, which tells the story of the National Park system. Good stuff! Stories about Teddy Roosevelt, John Muir, Gifford Pinchot, etc.

Okay, I listened to 10 episodes, quite good, thanks for recommending

Maybe could have gone into a little more depth. What caused things to happen and what lessons can we learn not to repeat bad things. It seemed fairly objective.

Sponsored by Koch? But he also sponsors NOVA on PBS. Reality is complicated. I like the story about the less famous of three Koch brothers that got ripped off buying expensive wine and how he got justice, even though it must have cost him more than what he lost off the counterfeit wine.
