The Headwaters: Stories from the Source is a new podcast that showcases the creativity, spectacular places, and innovative thinking in the Columbia Basin.

Brought to you by Columbia Basin Trust and hosted by Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Mitchell Scott, The Headwaters takes listeners on a journey through one of North America’s most compelling landscapes, one connected by a powerful river system.

“We’ve been telling these types of stories for two decades in our magazine, and they are a natural fit for a podcast,” says Scott. “With podcasting, the listener gains an intimacy with our subjects that sometimes we can’t get in print, and the results are as engaging as they are authentic,” continues Scott.

Each of the eight episodes are connected by a theme, such as saving species, innovations in the region, food sustainability, and more. The podcast was written, produced, and recorded in the Basin using journalists, writers, musicians, and designers from the region.

“We’re committed to sharing and celebrating the stories of the remarkable people and places in this region, and we’re excited to partner with the team at the award-winning Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine to help us do this,” says Delphi Hoodicoff, Director of Communications, Columbia Basin Trust.

The first three episodes of The Headwaters are now available at headwaterspodcast.com or wherever you listen to podcasts. Watch for new episodes weekly and follow it on Instagram at @headwaterspodcast.
