Brilliant Storytelling!

Chris and his team have a brilliant podcast! The story telling literally teleports you to another place in this time. The stories of the wildlife l, conservation and the people’s lives entangled with nature are just captivating. I’m an ecologist in Australia who runs a science communication business connecting people to nature, in my professional opinion these a top shelf stories and they are inspiring. Well done and you’ve got all my votes, I’ll be referring this to whoever I can. Thank you!

I cried over a bear 🥴

What a story teller! I work in Invertebrate Conservation so getting me emotional over mammal conservation can be a challenge! Too much jealousy over the amount of money and attention mammals get, haha! But you had me crying over bears! Your passion and drive is inspirational 😊
