Baratunde Thurston returns with a brand new season as he travels across the US to uncover more amazing stories about how we work, play, and interact with the outdoors.

How does a country as diverse as America embrace an outdoor way of life? Season 2 of America Outdoors with Baratunde Thurston airs Wednesdays starting September 6 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV. 

Baratunde Thurston meets a fascinating cast of Americans, from a champion ice climber in Utah to BIPOC mountain bikers in the Ozarks, from biologists saving snapping turtles on the Suwannee River to a scientist revealing what happens to the human body when we spend time in nature – and they all have one thing in common: a passion for the great outdoors.
