Wondrous Curation

Heard the interview with Gordon on the 20k Hertz podcast and this lustrous series is everything Birdnote producer Ashley Ahern said it would be. I also went to Gordon's soundtracker.com website where I found his American Prarie file available for purchase. What a pleasure to support this artist's life work. It's wonderful to learn he's mentoring new artists. Thank you, Gordon.

Incredibly fantastic

As an audio engineer/sound designer by trade and a nature enthusiast on the weekends, this podcast is the best of both worlds.

Thank you Ashley for hosting this series. Thank you Gordon for your dedication and hard work. These field recordings and mixes are spectacular!

Discovered this serious via 20k Hz podcast, but I’m also a BirdNote listener.
