Will Be Wild is a new 8-part series about the forces that led to the January 6th insurrection and what comes next. Through in-depth stories from a wide range of characters – from people who tried to stop the attack to those who took part – hosts Andrea Bernstein and Ilya Marritz explore the ongoing effort to bring autocracy to America, the lasting damage that effort is doing to our democracy, and the fate of our attempts to combat those anti-democratic forces. Because January 6th wasn't the end of the story, January 6th was just a practice run.Follow Will Be Wild wherever you get your podcasts, or you can listen early on Amazon Music or early and ad-free by subscribing to Wondery Plus in Apple Podcasts or the Wondery app.Listen to Will be Wild: wondery.fm/ATO_WillBeWildSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
Introducing the true crime podcast Badlands— a show that dives deep into the real stories of the famous at their most infamous. Each season, host Jake Brennan, explores the real life crimes and scandalous careers of the world’s most popular cultural figures. In an all new season, he tells the stories of A-listers whose misdeeds and career lows are as unbelievable as some of their films’ plot twists—like the story of Sharon Tate, who was caught up in a strange scene long before members of the Manson family came along. Or the story of how Judy Garland’s lifelong addiction to pills sent her over the rainbow much too soon. And the story about how Winona Ryder was connected to a child kidnapping case in her hometown. These and many more.For all that and more, listen to Badlands.

In the summer of 2008, mountaineers from eight different countries gather at the foot of the world’s second tallest mountain, K2. All of them have a single goal: reach the summit. But to do that they will need to undertake one most difficult, and dangerous, climbs on earth. Sunny mornings can suddenly transform into white out conditions. Avalanches drop from overhead without warning. The technical challenge is so great, one in four who attempt it won’t come down. But in early August, this doesn’t stop more than two dozen climbers from attempting the feat.  Through a series of unpredictable events, it will become one of the worst climbing disasters in modern times. It will also lead to extraordinary acts of bravery and an epic journey of the human will to survive.Listen ad free with Wondery+.

An international group of climbers are close to summiting one of the world’s tallest, and most dangerous, mountains. Their goal was to reach the peak by mid-afternoon and get down before dark when temperatures drop to 40 below and the thin air and darkness can leave climbers confused and lost. But problems with the rope line have put them behind and they are using all of their strength to push past the traverse. The summit is so close… but so is nightfall, and not all of them will make it back.Listen ad free with Wondery+. Join Wondery+ for exclusives, binges, early access, and ad free listening.

Monkeys are not cute; they are evil little fuckers! They will steal your food and kill your baby. Just do a quick Google search and you'll find many reports of monkeys taking a baby from its bed and drowning it or killing it in some other way.

Omfg it's not "NOO-kyoo-ler"; it's "noo-CLEAR". Everybody who says it the former way is WRONG, just like using "literally" for emphasis is WRONG.

It's amazing to me and incredibly inspiring how the workers at the Fukushima power plant sacrificed so much and willingly undertook enormous risk to save their country and its people from disaster... while here in the US we can't even be bothered to put on a face mask to protect others from a deadly virus that has already killed over one million Americans.

Great show, super dramatic and intense, but it would have been much better if they had explained what an avalanche beacon is and how it works. It's kind of an integral part of the story here and I had to look it up

THANK YOU Sara for bringing this incredible story to light! Think of all the history that would have been lost if these survivors' stories had gone with them to the grave. What an amazing, invaluable history lesson (and a GREAT story)!

What's more sexy than a woman who teaches herself how to use a gun? A woman who brings home the bacon with the gun she taught herself to use.

also in the Thai rescue when the diver corrects all the misinformation at the last episode, it makes you cringe for the narrator trying to recover from it, just own that the writer sucks and didn't do the homework.

the writing is so terrible, especially in the Thai caves episodes. it's terrible in all of the other episodes I have tried to listen to as well. I get that the "Bob looked at the fluffy bone-colored clouds on the dusty blue edge of the horizon" crap is filler but this would all be so much better if we just stuck to what we know.

How many episodes have y'all cried on? I've cried on every season. I'm a 38 year old army veteran if I can admit it everyone can. Also wasn't the first season great. The kids in the cave was intense very emotional. Both kinds of crying happy tears and sad tears more happy tho. It's like the last episode of the Season always gets me.

Womdery did it again, another great story,( full disclosure)I already know the the story has I did the 33 miners and I've read the book Alive more than I can count and I've seen the movie at least a dozen times. I'm telling yes because even though I knew those stories the way that they told the stories were so awesome so even if you've heard some of these stories I highly suggest that you still listen to him they're just amazing the way that they tell them.
