It's been a minute, hasn't it! I didn't drop off the planet, though it might feel that way. I've been busily working on a project that I hope helps people find joy and curiosity through this difficult year.
It's a podcast called BewilderBeasts that was inspired by the Somercamp 2020 class, "Amazing Animals" for kids. In it, we learned about jobs animals do for humans (like bees in Croatia who find underground land mines), unusual jobs humans can do if they want to work with animals (like forensic veterinarian), and amazing animals in the news.
Here is a taste with Episode #6: The Exploding Whale and A Cat Who Solved A Murder
Let me know what you think, and if you have suggestions for future episodes!
Download wherever you get your podcasts, or directly from BewilderBeastsPod.com OR on the BewilderBeasts playlist on YouTube! While you're there, you can also see the classes for kids that inspired this entire project, participate in training challenges from the summer at your leisure, or take full classes (like scentwork) FOR FREE from the comfort of your home.
Be safe, keep washing your hands, and.... y'all, VOTE.
And, if you need some escapism, listen to BewilderBeasts. New episodes drop every Wednesday morning.
