Fun and important

Great stuff and important perspective from one of the creators of the also-excellent Hannah and Erik Go Birding podcast.

Great Interviews Featuring Women Birders!

I found this podcast about 2 weeks ago and have steadily made it through almost the entire series. I’ve enjoyed Hannah’s creative cocktails themed around a bird that is special to the interview guest. I also find the interviews to be fun, informative, and well-composed. Can’t wait to “meet” more women birders through this podcast!

Filling a Great Niche!

Birds, booze, & hearing from awesome women of the birding community. What more could a person want from a podcast? Nice going, Hannah!
