This Week's Show

Off the Grid

Outdoor Idaho goes “Off the Grid” to explore why many Idahoans choose to unplug from the power company and leave city life. The vast majority of those who go off the grid do so because they want a simpler life, while also gaining self-sufficiency and independence. This program profiles three families around the state who have successfully built their lives without power, utilities, and services.

News & Notes

Outdoor Idaho entered its 40th season on October 13, 2022 with a program called "Looking Back and Moving Forward." This hour-long program commemorates what has made Outdoor Idaho beloved by people of all ages and occupations. 

“Outdoor Idaho provides us with a glimpse into the lives of others – farmers, outfitters, hunters, hikers, birders. It’s an education in our land, but also in our people,” said producer Lauren Melink. "In this program we not only recognize Outdoor Idaho but also the state and the landscapes that make our work possible.”
