Finally an obscure podcast for ME

I have been a Wendell seal fanatic since I was just a young boy 40+ years ago! Had tons of books, videos, and pictures throughout my room and bathroom and when my parents passed on 2 years ago, I moved upstairs to their room and was thinking of taking an expedition. So I bought an iPhone and found this podcast. Now I don't even need to leave my house! Much less my room! Or even my bed! I can spend time with the seals in my pajamas! Because I won't need to change my clothes into something waterproof to see them, so I might as well stay in my jammies! Unless I wanted to change into jeans and a semi formal sweater but I don't have to! That's the beauty of podcasting. I hope you plan on putting out more videos I can easily take my star rating down to a 3. I'll calculate the value of each star and decide on an alternative rating later.

Weddell Seal Science

In viewing these 3 podcasts To study Weddell Seals, Working in Antartica, and the Right Clothes for Antartica, I found these to be very interesting and informative. I particularly liked the footage of the seals and would of liked to see more video of their day to day lives as seals. Overall, it was great video, especially the close ups of mothers and pups. I particularly enjoyed the time lapse segment which was interesting. Kudos to those research scientists who have such demanding jobs with the elements to bring us information and an inside look into that harsh environment and the jobs they perform.

I didn't realize the Clothing center was in New Zealand and it would of been interesting to see footage of an actual involvement of a "suiting up" of equipment - and ready to go done with this segment.

Overall, these 3 podcasts are interesting and informative to watch and gives us a good perspective on the behind the scenes of the researchers, as most of us do not have that chance to go there or do what they are doing. Good Job!

These seals ROCK!

What an amazing podcast series about an amazing marine mammal. I especially enjoy their magnificent sounds and can't wait to download the ringtone. Well-written and well-produced series by a professional who obviously cares about their topic. Enjoy.
