Sustainability in the House with Emma Brisdion

Sustainability in the House with Emma Brisdion

January 17, 2022

"You should be doing more!"

"It starts at home!"

So many times we are told we should be helping the planet in our lives & often that means it starts in the place we spend most of our time.....our house. On this week's episode I am joined by podcaster & environmental science communicator, Emma Brisdion.

Emma was the perfect person for this show having co hosted an environmental & sustainability podcast, For What It's Earth Pod

From what Emma has learned from running a podcast, to her top tips for making sure elements of our life are doing good things for the planet, there's lots to unpack in this episode for being eco.

Sea Birds with Ben Porter

Sea Birds with Ben Porter

January 10, 2022

Happy New Year Nature Nerds!

After a festive break where I stuffed my face with food on the hour, every hour & drank a rather adequate amount, Into The Wild is back!

They come in a variety of shapes, sizes & colours. They spend the majourity of their time out over the waves & come together in the masses when it's time to get busy! Our first episode of 2022 is of course about, sea birds.

Joining me to dive into their world is naturalist & wildlife photographer Ben Porter. Ben shines some light of how these incredible animals have evolved to live out at such a challenging environment & how the populations of different species are doing. I also had to chat to Ben about the campaign he started along with Lucy Lapwing & Nina Constable called the Plant Pot Parabolic.

Community Conservation with Madison Bowden Parry

Community Conservation with Madison Bowden Parry

December 20, 2021

Well, we made it. The last episode of Into The Wild for 2021. 12 months, 50 episodes & almost 30,000 downloads. A massive thank you to everyone who listens, shares & sends love.

It's always tough to decide what to talk about for the last episode of the year, but after a quick think of what some of the main nature topics have been this year, I suddenly thought, community based conservation. It's something that has, rightfully, been pushed forward as a priority & spoken about a lot when working with nature so why not end the year of that.

For this I asked wildlife presenter & marine photographer Madison Bowden Parry (aka Madison Wildlife) to join me for a chat. Starting with her love of photographing the marine world we then lead on to chatting about why involving a community can help strengthen the success of a wildlife conservation project.

Beetles with Ash Whiffin

Beetles with Ash Whiffin

December 13, 2021

With approximately 400,000 known species, you'd be very fussy to say that there isn't at least 1 beetle you love! With a variety like that it was tough for me to know what to actually talk about when I planned an episode just about them however, picking the person to talk to was easy.

Joining me on today's episode to journey under the log to learn about these wonderful insects is entomologist & assistant curator of entomology at National Museums Scotland, Ash Whiffin.

Beavers in the UK: A Year Later with Eva Bishop

Beavers in the UK: A Year Later with Eva Bishop

December 6, 2021

What kind of British wildlife podcast would we be if we didn't talk, once again, about the fabulous & nature restoring beavers.

Over the last 12 months, so much attention has rightly been on these animals & the work to get them back established in the UK. For me to find out more about the progress, where we are at & what work is currently happening with these wonderful animals, I was joined by Communications Director for The Beaver Trust, Eva Bishop.

How We Feel About COP26 with Indy Green & Lauren Cook

How We Feel About COP26 with Indy Green & Lauren Cook

November 15, 2021

Good lord the last 2 weeks have been eco & planet intense eh? We've had to sit back & watch/listen as world leaders have made pledges & finalised plans to help the planet reach 1.5C & get rid of fossil fuels. It's not been easy & to be honest a lot of us are unsure how we feel about the outcomes.

On Saturday 6th November, it was the Global Day of Action & thousands of people around the world marched to show support for climate & human justice. Along with those people were myself, naturalist Indy Green & PhD student Lauren Cook. After our march in London, we grabbed 20 minutes to sit down at London's Natural History Museum to chat about how we feel about the future of the planet.

Working in the Polar Regions & COP26 with Ella Potts

Working in the Polar Regions & COP26 with Ella Potts

November 8, 2021

For years we have been shown documentaries of life in the polar regions whilst likely forgetting, that someone has had to wrap up, prep a warm drink & head out to those freezing temperatures & show us the wildlife in the cold. This week I chat with marine biologist & researcher, Ella Potts.

From Ella's top tips of dealing with the cold to why she chose to work in such inhospitable environments, Ella tells us all about life of working in the polar regions. Inevitably, we also discuss the future of these environments & about COP26. Ella shares with us her hopes & a few fears for the future.

Nuance in Nature with Alex Lees

Nuance in Nature with Alex Lees

October 31, 2021

It's no secret that on Into The Wild, topics that have nuance are some of my favourites. The reason being is that I like to challenge my brain & hear other view points or information that I didn't previously know. Running & hosting this show, that has certainly happened & my stance on some topics have changed.

This week I wanted to dive a bit deeper into why nuance is so important when discussing topics in wildlife conservation & why sometimes media or ARA organisations, may miss the nuance. To help answer some of my questions, I was joined my senior lecturer in biodiversity at Manchester Met Uni, Alex Lees.

We cover a lot in this episode & I also get the chance to discuss 2 recent Twitter threads from Alex that cover some very interesting research papers he was involved in.

If you'd like to keep up to date with Alex, you can follow him on Twitter @Alexander_Lees
