Excellent podcast - and getting better every week

Brilliantly light-hearted and irreverential but with deep, balanced coverage and serious intent. Don’t miss this

MuffinMan3546 ,

Brilliant

Absolutely love Jack’s podcast, from the variety of subjects and guests to his perfectly dry sense of humour. Easily my favourite nature-based podcast, and probably my favourite podcast overall!
I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants a light-hearted but informative nature podcast.

A Carp Called Bob ,

Highly recommended

Really enjoy Jack’s dry sense of humour, he’s a great host and interviewer. Interesting guests from all kinds of nature loving back grounds. If you’re a wildlife enthusiast or only slightly interested you will enjoy regardless. A must listen!
