Sean's Wild Life

Share

A wildlife watching obsession!

Season 4, Ep. 6

I've followed Kate MacRae (aka @WildlifeKate) on Twitter for years, enjoying her live video streams and webcams on various wildlife in stunning, up close and personal detail. So it was great to chat and share our mutual passion for observing wildlife and how you can always learn amazing new behaviours or insights into even our common or garden species.


With a background in environmental education, Kate shares why it's so important to get children enthused and interested in nature. She also shares some tips and tricks for attracting wildlife to your garden or nearest outdoor space, as well as tech tips on how to start a wildlife filming hobby or even career.


A regular on BBC Springwatch, Countryfile and Gardener's World, Kate's work is a pure joy to observe and so was speaking with her. Her enthusiasm and enduring fascination with the natural world won't fail to put a smile on your face.

Gillian Burke, Earth Warrior, Eco Freak

Season 4, Ep. 10
Biologist, presenter, public speaker, voiceover artist, writer and mother, Gillian Burke has a lot to say. So it was a delight to have a proper chat about her upbringing and career journey to date, her hopes for our planet and humanity as well as the challenges we are facing. Perhaps best know for her presenting role on BBC Springwatch and the spin off Autumn and Winterwatch shows, we talk about her somewhat tumultuous appearance and public reception on the show, as well as the importance of diversity in the natural sciences and the natural history field. We also explore Gillian's self confessed passion for supporting the underdog, speaking out on oppression and tackling tough environmental issues. We ponder on 2020, the year that threw a lot at us from Black Lives Matter, global pandemic, continued ecological destruction and environmental battles close to home like HS2. Finally Gillian shares her top three Instagram accounts to follow and they are a great selection. Sean's Wild Life podcast is produced and edited by Thomas Ntinas.
