I like it because I enjoy nature.
Absolutely terrible & I can’t stop listening to it.
These guys are just as bad in real life
Honestly, this podcast speaks to my soul. Real topics. Real birds. Real fun. It's the type of podcast that your wife will punch you for because you accidentally woke her up with your shaking while trying to keep from laughing out loud as she sleeps next to you. It's that good!
