  • What We All Need to Hear

    Episode 6 of Season 6 brought me to tears. There is so much I don’t know. So much that other cultures can bring to us. I loved the little girl calling “Welcome Home!” To the buffalo. We all need to hear this, it helps us understand.

  • Heart opening

    Wyoming Public Media - and Melodie Edwards in particular - always offers insightful, challenging ways to explore Wyoming’s western corner of the world. This series adds new depth and current texture to a complicated and, candidly, not honorable history. Simply amazing. A must listen podcast.

  • Important history lesson

    I’m enjoying listening to this podcast. Very sad story of how we “ white men” do horrible things to people not like us. Thought provoking for sure.

  • Modern West

    Instead of taking on tough subjects and focusing on how to make things better. All they look at is negatives. Leaves you feeling down and not hopeful. Even the into music is depressing. They have an opportunity to create hope. All they do is leave you depressed.
