A 5-part series deeply exploring of the California wildfire problem. Public Radio Veteran, Matt Fidler, combines on-location interviews with experts who understand wildfire the best, and NPR-style story telling to give listeners a non-political perspective on how to best approach a problem that is becoming increasingly destructive and deadly.

Natural disasters are increasing across the nation. In the West, these disasters often come in the form of wildfire, and perhaps no State understands the true cost of wildfire as California. While the Golden State has always had forest fires, these conflagrations are progressively becoming harder to control and more deadly. At the same time, California’s population has surpassed 40 million, pushing people further into wild spaces that have been adapted to fire. California Burning takes a deep and critical look at how the state’s fire-prone forests have been managed, and how we can all learn from the past to be better stewards of the land and avoid catastrophic wildfires in the future.
