This episode is our first episode as part of the up-and-coming 10cast network, and is brought to you by Mick Pryor, Edward Jones Financial Advisor

In this episode of Rediscover the Winds, we explore wildfire season. We talk about the Great Yellowstone Fire of 1988. We visit with Karl Braunies who spent his career with the U.S. Forest Service managing fire on public lands, and then we talk to Johanna Thompson of the Dubois Museum, who has been up-close and personal with a few of the region’s significant fires.

Our full interviews with Karl and Johanna will be released as bonus episodes in the coming weeks.
