Let’s Talk About Seaspiracy with Jaida Elcock & Marine Cusa

Let’s Talk About Seaspiracy with Jaida Elcock & Marine Cusa

April 19, 2021

Well, everyone else is talking about it so I thought I would too!

Seaspiracy, a film that needed to be made but when it was, was it done right or were there missed opportunities & misinformed messages? I certainly felt like there was but I don't work with the ocean so I thought I should get some help. My guests this week to answer my questions about this FISHY documentary were science communicator & co-founder of MISS- Elasmo, Jaida Elcock & marine biologist who is working to prevent illegal fishing, Marine Cusa.

I was keen to ask Jaida & Marine what points of the film they thought were good & what points they felt were.....not so spot on. Jaida explains to us the importance of getting the communication right & why certain messages in the film may not be the right ones to be pushing, whilst Marine rights some of the wrongs regarding talks about some NGO's in the film.

There's lots to unpack on this episode but let me remind you this show is not here to change your mind on Seaspiracy. This episode is here to add to the research you are hopefully doing on the topic of sustainable fishing & marine conservation.

In it for the Planet with Roxy Furman

In it for the Planet with Roxy Furman

April 12, 2021

Considering this is episode 54, I think I should win a medal for this being the first time I have actively discussed veganism with a guest (I type I as sit here in a t-shirt that says "Vegan Babe".)

This week I chat with wildlife presenter & filmmaker Roxy Furman. Talking all about her love for African painted dogs to her transition to a vegan lifestyle & how this incorporates into her wildlife filmmaking. Of course we also, vegan to vegan, share our pet hates about meat eaters & other vegans!

Youth Environmental Activism with James Miller

Youth Environmental Activism with James Miller

April 5, 2021

The environment has always, for what I can remember, needed protecting & needed a voice. In the last few years, no voice has been louder & clearer than that of the youth generation. This week I am joined by campaigner & environmental activist, James Miller.

James shares how it is talking with such high level decision makers & where he thinks the UK has gone wrong but also what options we have available. I was also dying to ask James what it was like to address Parliament for the RSPB's Green Recovery Plan & how the idea came up for two online concerts to raise money for Reserva last year.

What’s Happening in the Bahamas? with Niel Leadon

March 29, 2021

The Bahamas. A place we all know we want to go to but we rarely hear about when it comes to the environment or wildlife. What's happening out there? What wildlife can you see? What challenges is it facing? Well on this episode I talk with Bahamian activist & conservationist Niel Leadon.

Niel sheds some warm Bahamian sunlight on what wildlife you can see, what issues there are surrounding it whilst also telling us what kind of solutions are often used with these problems. Niel talks specifically about a project he worked on recently where he campaigned to stop oil drilling off the coast of the Bahamas & told me what the outcome of this was.

Frogs of New Orleans with Gina Zwicky

March 22, 2021

If you suffer from nature envy, go into this episode with a little caution, I wish I had! This week I am joined by naturalist, biologist & photographer, Gina Zwicky as we trek through the swamps & over the boardwalks of New Orleans to talk about Frogs & other incredible wildlife in the city.

Gina dives straight in telling me why she has this strong love for our green friends, the variety that can be found around her house & how close they are to her own doorstep. We also learn on an awesome citizen science programme called FrogWatch that supplies families, groups & communities with the tools & opportunities to go looking & hearing out for different frogs in order to collect data. (I love stuff like that).

Into The Foliage: Spontaneous Plants with Sophie Leguil

Into The Foliage: Spontaneous Plants with Sophie Leguil

March 15, 2021

Every spring supermarket shelves are disgustingly packed with "weed killer" or "instant weed destroyer" or even "weed gone juice", but as we move with the environmental needs of this planet, isn't it time we embrace these weeds or "spontaneous plants" & use them to their full potential to not only help wildlife, but also help ourselves.

This week Jan & Ryan are joined by horticulturist, botanist & ecologist Sophie Leguil to discuss the world of weeds & how power these plants can be. From the benefits to the what NOT to do in your garden, Sophie opens the lid of the compost bin of plant knowledge to help us see the flower, among the weed.

If you'd like to keep up to date with the projects & work Sophie is working on, you can do so on Twitter @Sleguil / @morethanweeds or on Instagram @more_than_weeds.

Getting Ryan Into Birding Part 1 with Jack Baddams, Indy Greene & Lucy Lapwing

Getting Ryan Into Birding Part 1 with Jack Baddams, Indy Greene & Lucy Lapwing

February 22, 2021

Birding, ergh, birding. There's more birders on the planets than there are birds, you know that right? WHAT IS ALL THE FUSS ABOUT?! I've never understood the world of birds & after one joke tweet about our feathered friends last year, thousands of angry birders & many wind ups later, I decided to dip my toes in the pool of......birds.

I couldn't do it alone though. I needed help. So in this mini series titled, Getting Ryan Into Birding, I'll be talking with Jack Baddams, Indy Greene & Lucy Lapwing, as they take me under their wing (yes that's a pun) to teach me not only how, but why, I should get into birding.
