Complex Radio: Rewilding and the Podcast

in Conceptualising the Podcast: Interdisciplinary Analyses of New Aural Cultures (Palgrave)

Rewilding is a movement in conservation science that supports biodiversity by helping areas go “back to nature”; rewilding is about the restoration of wild spaces, in geographic environments and in human nature both. This chapter looks at podcasting as a “wild” form of transmedia narrative, examining its structural and epistemological affinities with forms of chaotic real-world restoration, rewilding in particular.
