At Sea and Ashore

Another amazing podcast: Number 7 in a wonderful series.
Dr. Fay Clark gives us insight into the life of dolphins and explains that they are sometimes far from the kindly creatures we have always believed they were! Our Host, David Oakes, heard bravely 'leaping with lemurs', learns their sunbathing preferences and how these lovely creatures are unable to cope with the oversweetened fruit sold to us mere humans. Nutritionists might take note!
Altogether a very entertaining and informative podcast. Highly recommended!

My favourite.

This is an absolutely wonderful pod. Gentle and informative, funny and brilliant. It has easily become my go-to listen, ye know, the one when there is a new one out you get a little lift!

Nature and art, thoughtfully

This is a lovely series where artists, collectors, scientists and others from a huge variety of disciplines discuss their work and their relationship with the natural world. Being from an arts background myself, it's the artists I find most fascinating - I particularly loved Astrid Goldsmith and Polly Morgan - but everyone interviewed has a great story to tell. It also brings home the fragility of our human relationship with nature and it's thought-provoking to see all these people who love the natural world bringing quite different responses as to how we should nurture that relationship. Equally, David Oakes is an articulate and engaging host. Keep the episodes coming please!
