Whether you’re a native Tennessean or a newcomer, the state’s natural diversity and wild landscapes are among the most visible trademarks of the Volunteer State. But maybe you’ve never explored those places, even in your own neighborhood.

In this edition of Dialogue, WUOT's Brandon Hollingsworth welcomes a guest who might change that. Erick Baker is the host of public television’s Tennessee Uncharted. He takes viewers on adventures large and small throughout the state, and he says getting outside can do more than just give us fresh air. It can appeal to something deep within us.

In the course of their talk, Baker and Hollingsworth discuss what Tennessee Uncharted is all about, give you some ideas on how to start your own outdoor adventures, and the parts of ourselves that can be accessed by getting back in touch with nature.
