New episode of Exploring Environmental History Podcast
The latest episode of the Exploring Environmental History Podcast discusses the political and cultural influences of Indigenous fire use in Australia and the United States. This knowledge is often used to inform prescribed burning for fuel reduction, which has a long history in Australia but less so in the United States.
