Hal has written for publications that range from the Atlantic Monthly and the Economist to Creative Nonfiction and Orion, and specializes in deeply reported, long-form journalism stories and essays. For the past two years, Herring has been the host of the Backcountry Hunters and Anglers Podcast and Blast, with over 100 episodes published so far. He is a dogged and committed researcher who will ruthlessly reject his own biases to understand and report whatever the actual truth may be. Herring is currently at work on a book project about the history, present, and future of our American public lands. Website // Podcast
