The paranormal, trees, and tall tales of the Basin are just three of the topics tackled in season two of The Headwaters: Stories from the Source.
Brought to you by Columbia Basin Trust and hosted by Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Mitchell Scott, season one of The Headwaters was a huge success, amassing more than 10,000 downloads.
“People told us they really loved hearing these stories about where they live,” says Scott. “So we headed back out on the road for another year, and we gathered more.”
Each episode is based on a theme, which is written, produced, and recorded in the Basin using journalists, writers, musicians, and designers exclusively from the region. Three new episodes were released this morning, and one episode a week will drop throughout May and June.
“We know the love that people feel for the Columbia Basin region, so it’s no surprise that unique stories that celebrate the incredible people and places here are proving to be a hit with them, too,” said Delphi Hoodicoff, Director, Communications, Columbia Basin Trust. “We’re excited to launch this second season, which will once again share stories about what makes this area such a great place to live, work and play. Thank you to Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine and all those who have helped make the podcast a success.”
