Montana Public Radio jumped in early to support Threshold many moons ago, with financial support and a commitment to broadcast the whole first season. They've also been promoting the heck out of it. Grateful!

We're pretty stoked that Yellowstone Public Radio has also decided to air the show, and others are considering it for broadcast too. If you'd like to hear the show on your public or community radio station, let them know! Or, let us know, and we'll let them know.


Montana Public Radio - Sundays at 6 p.m.
Yellowstone Public Radio - Fridays at 6:30 p.m.



We've started to release our "extras," little short-ish things that we couldn't fit into the show but we think you might enjoy, or learn from. If you're a subscriber, they'll show up magically in your feed. If you're not into that whole listen-on-your-phone-thing, look for them on the episode pages here on the site.

If you're interested in the deep roots of the human-bison story -- like way back, when we migrated out of Africa, you might like this extra:

As always, thank you so much listening, Facebooking, Tweeting, Instagramming, subscribing, calling in with your bison stories...we're having a blast with this roll-out, thanks to you and all your support!

You + Bison

Have you had a memorable encounter with a bison*?

Something funny? Scary? An experience that made you angry? Happy? Something that totally surprised you?

We want to hear about it! We're collecting buffalo* stories from people all over the country. If you've got one, call us. We may include your voice on the first season of Threshold.

Here's how:

You don't have to identify yourself if you don't want to, but if you're so inclined, leave us your name and some way to contact you, in case we'd like to follow up and hear more.

And thanks!

* Bison is just the more scientifically correct term for buffalo. We're going to use both words interchangeably and you should feel free to do the same.

Threshold             = the moment when will turns into action

                                = energy turns into matter

                                = we wake up

threshing             = separate the wheat from the chaff
