Fire is, and always has been, a permanent part of our western landscapes and ecosystems, but the debate and policy prescriptions around how to protect our communities is shockingly disconnected from the science and and on the ground reality.

Thats why Ive asked the director of an inspiring and powerful new film called Elemental onto the show to talk about the realities of how we can co-exist with wildfires and create fire safe homes and communities.

Trip Jennings is the Principal & Founder of Balance Media, a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, and has won dozens of awards for his past films. His new film, Elemental, has been met with rave reviews, and is changing the narrative around wildfires.
