Wild Thing

Foxtopus Ink

Wild Thing is a long-form, narrative podcast about the obsessions that capture our imaginations. This sound-rich and deeply reported show examines the relationship between science and society—that point where scientific inquiry collides with our very human desire to find answers, even when there are none. Whether it's seeking out Sasquatch, looking skyward for extraterrestrial life, or probing the power of the atom, exploring the unknown helps us better understand ourselves. Every season, host Laura Krantz tackles a brand new topic, so be sure to start with the first episode for each one.

  • Perfect balance of fun storytelling and intellectual curiosity

    Wild Thing is great. Whether diving into fairy tale or sci fi or exploring nuclear science, it has the structure of serious and well researched reporting hidden behind a sweet, friendly and fun approach to storytelling. Love listening at the gym, on my commute and Saturday mornings at home with coffee.

  • Fun and Informative!

    This podcast has an interesting and fun range of topics that host Laura does an exceptional job of covering. I really like her non-biased style of investigative research and reporting mixed with the occasional “dad joke”. Dad jokes are rad jokes, right? As stated, this podcast is fun and informative! You’ll likely learn something and the host allows you to draw your own conclusions instead of pushing you towards a personal bias. The world needs more of this!

  • Wild Thing is captivating!

    I love listening to Laura Krantz dive deep on topics she’s curious about and willing to share with us. She’s the best storyteller! And she is so well researched, doing the most interesting interviews and no interview is a waste. You almost want to go behind the scenes with each one, that’s how well edited this thing is. I always look forward to the next episode and next season and hope Laura continues to produce these!
