I've been a listener from the first episode aired on NHPR, and was immediately hooked. The stories being shared are compelling and make me ask my own questions, and challange my own assumptions on the 'way of things'. There's always something new and fun when I get that notification of a new Outside/In episode, from a history lesson about Mt. Washington, to a goofy story about why Sam's picture is on a bus in Argentina, these fun quirky stories keep me excited to listen, and then the episodes tackling a poignant problem like the Powerline special and 'Leave it to Beavers' inform me on issues in the state, and New England, in ways that I don't expect. I can't tell you how many time's I've been talking with co-workers, friends, or family and started a sentence with, "Well, on this episode of this podcast I listen to, Outside/In, you should really listen to it." This podcast is a treasure, and in Sam's words, is 'so hot right now'.
I believe I found this podcast after it was featured on RadioLab, and man am I happy! This is probably my new favorite show! I am interested in science, nature, and all the ethics and philosophy that relates to it and this podcast caters to these interests. They're PowerLine series was phenomenal and it made memore aware of sources of energy and the "no free lunch" concept. Keep it up!
Giggling down my Philly street at Sam ruining well intentioned human beings- trying to be (as lightly as possible). Myself included.
Truly, madly, deeply. Is that over the top? I donât care. I love this podcast. Well written, well performed, and so, so well produced. My wife and I love to listen together. Makes our drive while doing the errands fun.
Iâve never taken the time to write a review (I think), but felt compelled to say that I really look forward to this podcast. Since it ,seemingly, irregularly comes out with a new episode, when one appears on my podcast list, I am always so happy about it! Many outdoor themed podcasts are very negative (doom and gloom about the state of climate affairs) but this one does a great job talking about themes I care about in a detailed and entertaining way. I did my undergrad in New Hampshire and now am a graduate student at stanford, so I love how this podcast connects me to so many things that matter in New England. Thank you so much for the great work. I will continue to share this podcast with people whenever possible. Keep it up! And if you ever want to talk about forest ecology or plant root system (that is what I research) feel free to reach out!
This is a simply brilliant podcast about the outdoor world. It is well produced and easy to listen to in style, and deep, engaging, and thought provoking in substance.
It discusses things we take for granted or just donât normally think about in insightful and interesting ways
I grew up in a small town in central Pennsylvania. Grew up hiking, biking, camping as a Boy Scout. This show really brings a lot of different adventures together from different experiences. Living in the city, this podcast really brings me to a zen mood. I appreciate the stories and content and canât wait to listen to more. Thanks, great work!! -Jordan
Like the unscripted and lighthearted vibe with smart storytelling. Finally a nature/outdoors podcast that doesnât take itself too seriously!
Science, nature, the environment, energy...all tackled with intelligence, curiosity and good humor.
Such interesting topics. I have learned so much.
Theyâve outdone themselves! I really enjoyed âStoner Panelsâ and the Powerline series. I highly recommend this podcast!
I really think itâs hot, I love the show and how we can see nature and the world we live in today. Iâve learned so much about our current nature and how we use it in our daily lives. The podcast usually gets very deep on stuff that we do not think of, therefore we all get some awesome useless information and some pretty awesome good information to help out our environment. I recommend it for people that are addicted to information like me!!!
I travel a lot for work and have a long commute, as well. In the past I didn't enjoy listening to podcasts. However, I stumbled upon Outside/In one day by chance. What an AWESOME accident. This is my absolute favorite thing to listen to. I almost feel that it is tailored to me. I enjoyed the thorough investigation in the Powerline series, and the story about the Fantastic Mr. Phillips really spoke to me. I've recommended it to many folks because I think it's as show anyone remotely interested in the outdoors could love. The only downside is that I want there to be more episodes! Keep on doing you, Sam (and everyone else).
Great show covering a ton of interesting topics, most have been family friendly and have kept my two middle schoolers interested! The hosts/producers are great about giving warning when the content may not be kid appropriate.
Iâve honestly been looking for a great outdoors podcast but a lot of them arenât very well put together. This one is one of the only exceptions. Call it McDonalds cause Iâm lovin' it. Keep up the great work
Sam EB and crew have really hit their stride with recent podcasts. Thank you for tackling important, extremely complex issues: from Northern Pass to the economics of Rescue. Your podcasts are thought provoking....and sometimes silly to remind us all to laugh as well. NHPR Is a small public radio station but your reporting is on par with the best NPR stations out there.
I've never written a podcast review but your powerline miniseries inspired me to do so. What a well rounded piece of journalism! Been listening since the start and it keeps getting better. Keep up the good work!
Produced well, great subject matters I enjoy listening.
This podcast has some of the best investigative storytelling I have ever heard. I just listened to the series about Hydro Quebec and I was amazed. Highly highly recommend.
And kept me awake! Iâm from Montreal and itâs part refresher course and whole new mind blowing seminar!
I love listneing and look forward to it each week!
Love this podcast! Interesting, well done, and funny. It keeps my interest on every subject. Such a good variety of topics
I'm new to podcasts in general but so far this one is my favorite. I love that it's produced by my local NPR station. I love the light-hearted manner in which topics are approached. I feel like I learn new things in every episode. Keep it up Sam!
I started to listen to this over last summer (summer of 2017). I've listened to about half of their podcasts since then, and love putting them on when I have 20-30 minutes to listen. They balance good dives into interesting subjects (kiwis, the electric grid, marathons, the trail "fixing" crew, traffic circles) and have a ton of fun doing so.
Outside/In presents a perfect balance of wit, science, debate, facts, banter, and humor. If you enjoy the outdoors, sarcasm, and solid research all wrapped up in a captivating presentation, check it out.
Really loving this podcast. Sometimes the end is very abrupt but overall great show!
Working an 8 to 5 desk job is the worst. This podcast lets me forget that I sit indoors during prime daylight hours at least 45 hours a week. Funny, informative, and relaxing. Please keep cranking out new episodes, my friends! This podcast is truly the best!
As a crappy podcaster, the NHPR team and SamEB allow me to think of how good I'd be if I took it as serious as they do. It's not true and I'm lying to myself, cuz they have actual talent, resources and creativity I'll never have. Subscribe and dive into archive.
Professionally edited podcast, with a witty sense of humor. Always interesting and informative topics. Really like
Although not sure genetically distinct Mason Beavers are really a thing, Iâll go with it. Very well produced podcast with a lot of hard work and research going into it. Love the story telling style, the topics, the balance, and the science. The interstitial chats can, at times, sound a tad forced, but minor quibble. Keep up the great work O/I team.
Mad love for this New Hampshire based podcast
Great content, engaging host, very well done.ðð¼ðð¼âð¼
One of my favorite podcasts to listen to at work. Love the music and overall production. Can't beat the content! Engaging stories that sometimes cause me to fall in Wikipedia holes...
I listen to these podcasts at work and although some episodes aren't very interesting (power grid) I always learn something
I am enjoying this podcast so much that I've gone back to your first and have listened all the way up to "wearing earth tones". This was a particular favorite since I live only a few miles from the campsite. Thanks for all you do. I trust you will record for a long time.
To be honest, I would have rated this podcast 5 star if not for the request of 3 haha. I just cannot get over how humorous, informational, and well orchestrated it is, not to mention how eclectic and creative the story choices are. I find myself grinning from ear-to-ear (and often laughing along robustly) at the quips and cracks of and Sam and Taylor to the point that fellow joggers have stopped me to ask "what's so great?" Thank you all -so much- for the wonderful work you do to not only educate but entertain.
As a professional wildlife biologist, I really enjoyed the well rounded piece on beaver. Keep up the good work
Superb storytelling, very informative, and comical. Sam is a fantastic host and journalist, making every episode extremely enjoyable to listen to. I can't recommend this podcast enough!
I'm so happy I found this podcast! It's the best! The host is so great and the content is everything i ever wanted to hear. Finally a good podcast in new england! It's like 99pi but not always about the west coast or a local natgeo! Listen!
Just discovered this the other week, and I haven't been able to stop listening. Really enjoy the delivery! The content is captivating, relevant, impactful, and easily digestible. Personally, I feel like the stories are thouroughly researched and provide a great overview of the topics highlighted on each episode, even with them being relatively short. They leave you at a great point to continue your own investigation if it's something that truely interests you. Sam and the whole Ouside/In team are amazing! Thank you so much for putting on this podcast!
As a fan of the outdoors I love this podcast. Every episode is a must listen to. I promise every episode will have an ah-hah moment and if not Sam Evans Brown will give you your money back. So hot right now.
Sam and the gang are wonderful! You do not have to be the outdoor type to enjoy these stories. So glad I found this podcast. I recommend it to everyone I know.
Found on spotify, but I've heard the call to action enough times by now that I figured I would share a review. Really enjoying the interesting facts and stories, and the host/producers present them in engaging ways. Being a lifelong midwesterner, it's interesting to hear a (slightly) New England centric view on a lot of the things I care about.
Thoughtful, charming and interesting. What a treat!
I found it by listening to 99% invisible so glad i dug a little deeper and found this show! I wasn't sure what to expect but I'm not disappointed. Great little bits from the new England area which is exciting to get a peak into what life is like in that area since im from the midwest.
