Ezra David Romero / Capital Public Radio

Ezra David Romero / Capital Public Radio

Capital Public Radio Environment Reporter Ezra David Romero launches his limited series podcast, YosemiteLand, today. Learn more about the podcast, which will explore how Yosemite and the surrounding area is impacted by the more than 4 million annual visitors to the park, on Insight today. In the first episode, released today, Ezra will unpack the issues around tourism and how it is changing the park.

YosemiteLand isn't a podcast about the top-10 hiking destinations or park secrets, but along the way you will meet world famous rock climbers, bear biologists, Native Americans born in the park and many more of the fascinating characters who make up the story of Yosemite today. Look for new episodes on Monday mornings.
