    Just discovered your podcast and I have been loving it. I especially loved this episode, listening to it twice, back to back. Thank you for such excellent podcasting!

    Bear Man was very interesting listening. I have been looking for a podcast that interviews non-celebrities and here it is. Thanks, Jennifer!

    This is just so, so, so good and so important. My son and I have been reading Erin Hunter’s The Seekers series and I asked him to listen to this episode and he did. He said he loved it except that the bit about the brother mourning the sister bear made him sad. I talked about this episode in the college class I teach today, because I think we can (and should) work this story about non-humans into pretty much everything we talk about.

    I ran into him while cruising timber in western NH – he was tracking radio collared bears from a 4 wheeler. A great soul on so many levels.
