This is a pivotal moment in human history. In the future, people will look back at our era and wonder how we could have talked about anything other than the way humans are changing — and being changed by — the planet.


Threshold is a podcast that delivers real stories from the voices of those living the journey accompanied by honest photographs. There is nothing staged, silver coated or imagined. The issues are real and so are the environments they tackle. All for the truth of the story. 

Threshold is an award-winning podcast and public radio show that’s made in Missoula, Montana. Each season, Threshold takes a deep dive into one pressing environmental issue, taking a close look at our changing relationship with the natural world. Threshold follows six simple guiding principles: story first, no villains/no heroes, tell the truth, all natural and free range. Presenting stories from the American bison, climate change, ancient cultures and wildlife refuge and drilling for oil to name a few. 

“A lot has been written about bison management, but rarely have we seen the issue addressed with such depth.”

Join APORTA Shop for an evening of listening to and discussing Threshold’s immersive audio journalism on March 25, 2020. We’ll be listening to excerpts from Threshold’s latest season, The Refuge, which dives into the decades-long controversy over drilling for oil in the remote wilderness of Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Threshold’s reporting gives us an intimate look into the perspectives of those closest to the issue, from the indigenous communities in and around the refuge to politicians, policymakers, and scientists.

We’ll listen together, then discuss what we heard, what we learned, and what surprised us.
