Off Track, with Ann Jones, is an Australian radio show and podcast which combines the relaxing sounds of nature with awesome stories of wildlife and environmental science, all recorded in the outdoors.
Antarctic blue whales and their amazing hums
The song calls of Antarctic blue whales are so deep that they're almost infrasonic - you feel them as much as you hear them.

After 35 years, some of the same sleepy lizards are still alive, still with the same lizard partner.

Nature tells us who we are
Nature can be sanctuary, as well as family and guide.
The perfect bedtime podcast. Ann Jones is a beautiful soul and so smart and witty and easy to listen to. The work she is doing here is impressive. I usually relisten after falling asleep to this show.
Thankyou team for this amazing program. I look forward to each episode. I love the indepth interviews with passionate people all around the country. The mix of learned nature lovers and interesting academics is wonderful. Dr Ann Jones, I love your work and the way you tell a story. I often pass on an episode to a fellow bird and nature lover here on the Merri Creek in Melbourne where I photograph nature daily. Very healing in crazy times.
Cheers, Gabrielle Pounsett
This is my all time favourite show.
