If you’re new to the Mountain & Prairie Podcast, stop reading right now and head over to my website—listen to some episodes and read a few blog posts. If you enjoy it and gain useful insights into life in the American West, then come back to this page and keep reading…

For you long-time Mountain & Prairie Podcast listeners, first of all, thank you for spending your valuable time listening to the podcast. When I started this project, I hoped to convince two people—my wife and my mother—to tune in. Dozens of episodes later and much to my surprise, I’ve somehow managed to assemble a tribe of thousands of loyal listeners like you. On the surface many of us couldn’t be more different—differing geographies, political leanings, educational backgrounds, hobbies, and careers. But we’re all united by an overarching love of the American West and a desire to celebrate its magnificent landscapes, fascinating people, and sometimes-hilarious idiosyncrasies.

In these divisive times, my goal has been to focus on the shared values and common interests of a wide range of fascinating characters in the American West—athletes, artists, adventurers, ranchers, writers, entrepreneurs, conservationists, and more. We discuss important and sometimes controversial issues in a civil manner, and we skip the surface-level nonsense and dig deep into the substance of the subject at hand. As you know, I take great care to memorialize the conversations with exhaustive episode notes, listing every book and resource mentioned by the guest. Thanks to hundreds of links to further reading and a growing catalogue of the guests’ collective wisdom, each episode is just a starting point in your journey to learn more about the American West.

I am incredibly grateful for the many emails, Facebook messages, and Instagram comments over the last few years telling me how much you’ve gained from listening—your kind words have kept me going through many late nights of editing. If you've gleaned value from the conversations, book recommendations, or actionable online resources, I’d really appreciate your financial support. If Mountain & Prairie brings you as much enjoyment as say, a latte or a burrito, I’d be honored if you sent a few bucks my way. Your support will help me continue to produce and expand the substantive, in-depth content and will also serve as tangible encouragement that what I’m doing here is making a difference.

I’ve got exciting things in the works for Mountain & Prairie, so I’m thrilled to have you along for the ride. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your listens, reviews, messages, and support!
