Where else on public radio programming can you hear polar bears growl, peregrine falcons cry and killer whales splash? In an ever increasingly urban world, Encounters: Experiences in the North brings the sounds of the northern wild to the radio for a rare, entertaining and informative weekly program. Now in its sixth season, Encounters is heard throughout Alaska and around the nation. Encounters is hosted by Richard Nelson, Alaska’s acclaimed cultural anthropologist and award winning nature writer.

Encounters is no longer being produced, however with over 200 episodes KSTK will continue to broadcast this amazing show through archived editions
