Rewilding Myth w/ Sophie Strand || The Rewilding Podcast

In this episode I converse with writer Sophie Strand. I’ve found her  writing to be particularly inspiring to my rewilding journey in terms of understanding and thinking about masculinity. However, we cover much more than that. Our conversation branches off in many directions, though  the main thread is around connecting our personal narratives in rewilding to the larger cultural narratives found in our mythologies–and  the mythologies that make the most sense from a rewilding perspective. It was such a pleasure to converse with someone as deeply researched and passionate about this topic as Sophie is. She has many insights to  share and I’m honored to have her on the podcast. Looking forward to reading her book when it comes out this fall!
