Hi all, just starting out on Patreon and want to make my content accessible. Please use this as a sliding scale and pay what you can. Thank you! All patrons get early access to my podcast episodes, videos, reviews, and essays. With the Patron Prompt Pledge, anyone who becomes a patron can ask me a question about rewilding and I will answer it in one of my "Patron Prompt" podcasts. Patrons also have access to the audio version of Rewild or Die, with my own contemporary commentary, corrections, and criticisms. Like what's changed in the last 15 years since I began writing it? What do I still agree with? What was stupid for me to say? How has recent archaeology changed things? How have concurrent social movements impacted the perception of rewilding? I'll release a chapter a week until the whole book is done.

About Rewilding with Peter Michael Bauer

My name is Peter Michael Bauer and I am an anthropologist, experimental archaeologist, and historian. My work focuses on the social and environmental impacts of the neolithic revolution, and how understanding these impacts can provide us with solutions to the sixth mass extinction. Since the early 2000’s, I have been an integral catalyst in the human rewilding movement. My work creates resilience through the return to place-based, regenerative subsistence strategies, inspired by those that exist outside of–and those that existed prior to–the formation of agrarian states. I created the first international online rewilding forum (now archived at, wrote a book on rewilding called Rewild or Die, founded the organization Rewild Portland (where I teach classes), and created the Annual North American Rewilding Conference. You could say that rewilding is my life. Here on my patreon, my supporters get early access to my podcast, essays, videos, and other content.
