NatureTrue CrimeScience

The biggest black market you’ve never heard of is blooming right under your nose. Whether it’s a 4,000-pound cactus shoveled from the Arizona desert or delicate orchids pinched from the tangled jungle of Peru, rare plants are at the center of a rapidly growing and lucrative world of crime. Hosted by plant expert Summer Rayne Oakes, Bad Seeds plunges straight into it, featuring the buyers, the sellers, the obsessives, and those who came face-to-face with the criminals behind an underworld few know exist.

  • Important topic!

    I love this podcast! It’s like Dateline for plant fanatics. The biological, ecological and cultural exploitation examined in this podcast shines a light on the unmitigated greed of humans. Thanks Summer!

  • Important, yet entertaining

    Tells stories how today‘s slightest interest from human beings can significantly harm or even totally destroy species. Some stories sound tragicomic, some are disturbing when you understand the volumes of the harvesting and the outcomes for the nature.
