Or why the world is destined to be populated purely by female turtles? This podcast celebrates nature and the stories of those who care deeply for it. Join artist and actor David Oakes for a series of informal, relaxed conversations with artists, scientists, creatives and environmentalists (and even wildlife photographers crazy enough to snorkel with crocodiles!), as they celebrate the beauty of the natural world and how it inspires us as human beings.

Live Golden Eagles talk

I loved this live episode. I learn so much from every episode but hearing it live,( while it was not actually live for me) was extra special because I felt as though I was right there in the bookstore with the audience. It was also wonderful to hear the theme song played live and David’s humor and Cat’s stories of working with eagles and growing up with wildlife were so interesting and enjoyable. This is one of my favorite podcasts to listen to because it’s so down to earth and easily understandable for laypeople who love wildlife but don’t necessarily have a degree in studying it. Bravo David for doing this podcast! I admire you as an excellent interviewer and as an actor as well.👍💕

Golden Eagles

Thoroughly enjoyed this episode. Learning of how conservators are helping grow the golden eagle population is learning about some amazing work.
