America Outdoors with Baratunde Thurston
Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on CPTV
AMERICA OUTDOORS WITH BARATUNDE THURSTON returns with a brand-new season as the best-selling writer, podcaster and comedian travels across the US to uncover more amazing stories about how we work, play and interact with the outdoors. In a country as diverse as America, Baratunde is on a mission to see how culture, history and the land itself are shaping what we do when we step through our front doors to embrace an outdoor way of life. 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, Baratunde meets a fascinating cast of Americans with one thing in common: a passion for the great outdoors.

Spy in the Ocean: A Nature Miniseries
Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on CPTV beginning October 25
The latest installment of the popular Spy in the Wild series takes place in the ocean, the largest ecosystem on Earth. This four-part Nature miniseries employs animatronic spy cameras disguised as marine animals to secretly record behavior in the wild. These uncanny robotic look-alikes take us to places where no spy has gone before. They will swim, float, paddle, waddle, drift and fly into every nook and cranny to film rarely seen behavior that reveals how ocean animals possess emotions and behavior similar to humans – including the capacity to love, grieve, deceive, and invent.
