‘Under the Texas Sky’ Podcast Debuts
TPWD series focuses on the great outdoors.
We are of nature and it is in us. That’s the premise of a new long-format audio podcast from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department called Under the Texas Sky, which debuted in January 2019. As podcasts continue to grow in popularity with all ages, and especially among young adults, TPWD saw an opportunity to reach a new audience in a fresh way.
Under the Texas Sky, produced and hosted by Cecilia Nasti, presents the great outdoors to listeners — whether they listen in their cars or on their smartphones — through the experiences of everyday people, as well as with experts inside and outside of the agency. The podcast is not just about department programs and projects. It is about the people who benefit from the work the agency does to keep Texas wild things and wild places vibrant.
A series of podcasts in 2019 will feature the audio diaries of 20-something-year-old siblings Cassandra and Christopher Neve of Austin. With the onset of adulthood and its responsibilities, the siblings lost touch with nature, but plan to spend the next year reconnecting with it.
Stream or download the podcast ator find it on major podcast platforms. Under the Texas Sky is made possible through the support of the Texas Parks & Wildlife Foundation and the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program.
