Each season, Threshold podcast explores one story from the natural world, and what it says about us. Season one focuses on the American bison. Dig into the history of the American bison, from their arrival in North America, to current controversies surrounding their management today.

Holiday Specials On MTPR

Happy Holidays from Montana Public Radio! Make MTPR part of your celebrations with these special holiday programs:

Bull bison in Yellowstone National Park

People and bison first met 75,000 years ago, and ever since, we've been hunting them, painting them, and walking with them into new lands. Before Europeans arrived in America there were more than 50 million bison here. By 1901, there were just 23 wild bison left. Now, we have some decisions to make. Can we ever have wild free-roaming bison in North America again? Should we? What does the history of bison have to teach us about ourselves?

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day designated to "give back to the community." Created in 2012 to contrast with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this Tuesday, we remember to be generous.

Giving Tuesday is a great time to make your year-end donation to Montana Public Radio. Donate today and you'll get an exclusive ringtone recorded by Radiolab's Jad Abumrad just for MTPR supporters.
