In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit the Musk Ox Farm in Palmer, Alaska. The farm aims to domesticate a species that used to roam Earth at the same time as the saber-toothed cat and woolly mammoth.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
