About The Show

Introducing WILD, a podcast about growing up… kind of. About those moments big and small that transform us forever. About how sometimes we come out on the other side of chaos or adversity with scars but we come out stronger. About who we’ve been, and who we’ve become. WILD is about origin stories, OUR origin story. Hosted by award-winning New York Times writer Erick Galindo, in collaboration with Adweek’s producer of the year, Megan Tan and LAist Studios. Season 1 is a time capsule of 10 people and how they found light in a year of darkness.
