SO MUCH FUN!!

Just discovered the program. Education about the natural world with a unique voice and delightfully sly humor. Really disappointed that there are only ten episodes so far. I have no character, so I have listened to them all and am now at the mercy of the publication schedule.

Fascinating sounds of nature

Dr Ann Jones is a terrific and engaging scientist presenting the work of researchers and naturists, often with humor, and always with panache.
