Christopher Ketcham - Author of This Land: How Cowboys, Capitalism & Corruption are Ruining the American West

Release Date: February 5th, 2020

In this episode, I speak with Christopher Ketcham, author of This Land: How Cowboys, Capitalism and Corruption Are Ruining the American West. We talk about his new book, the cowboy mythos, corruption in federal land management agencies, cattle ranching and grazing on public lands in The West. We also talk about the pending Owyhee wilderness bill (Malheur Community Empowerment for the Owyhee Act) in Oregon and the influence of the cattle industry on the process. We also discuss the failures of the conservation groups at the table. I had a great chat with Chris and I hope you enjoy the conversation. Thanks for listening.
