Wimmer's Wilderness show

Wimmer's WildernessJoin Now to Follow

I would like to welcome you to Wimmer’s Wilderness. We are working to bring greater awareness to our local communities and how important they are. We as individuals can have a significant impact on the quality of our communities. I have always wanted to create a way to help bring a little more light on important issues that affect us. I have created a Podcast called Wimmer’s Wilderness to give voice to this idea. Wimmer’s Wilderness is an informed look at decisions about Politics, Community, Government, Environment and Education from a local perspective. Our regions, states and countries are simply a collection of local communities working together. If we are able to make a positive change in our local communities then that will lead to better outcomes at the regional, state and national level.
