It was supposed to be a leisurely float down the Snake River. But when they lost their guide, a group of tourists got more than they bargained for.

  1. This is the first time I listened to Humanature after heavy promotion by WPR. I was disturbed by the storyteller and hosts reaction to this harrowing river trip- nonstop giggling. This river trip could have been incredibly tragic and fatal but thankfully it ended it with everyone intact. Even in retrospect, I did not find any of the events even remotely humorous. If I listen to Humanature again, I hope I find the producers have used a more appropriate attitude.

    • That actually made the story really enjoyable for me. If it had ended differently, then it would have been inappropriate. But it ended well and all of the things that happened were a direct result of a river mutiny…which is really funny.

  2. Charlie is such an incredible story teller! What a comical nail-biter! Would love to hear more of Charlie’s stories.
