Not your usual nature chat, series two of the Wild Dunedin Podcast delves into sharky waters and wild forest orgies, tries to figure if your cat has played you, asks if ancient New Zealand got dunked or if the days of doing bombs into the local river are done with. And we definitely, absolutely, resolutely will not put in a sneaky episode about climate change (that you actually could enjoy). In an exciting collaboration with local Dunedin musician Molly Devine, all episodes this year will have bespoke, original music created specifically to give you the feels on that story as we tell it. Don’t miss a single one! Subscribe now on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts (Wild Dunedin Podcast). Or download from the Wild Dunedin or Otago Access Radio Websites. This podcast is supported by the Otago Regional Council Eco-Fund, the Wild Dunedin Festival of Nature and the Otago Museum (thanks !). All episodes are dreamed up, recorded and produced by the hard work and dedication of Dr. Claire Concannon, Science Outreach Projects Coordinator at the Otago Museum, Jamie McAulay, conservation biologist with the Department of Conservation, and Taylor Davies-Colley, botany student and nature frother in the extreme.
