The Human Nature (HN) podcast features a series of 30 minute interviews with prominent persons, designed to mainstream natural history in such a way as to improve conservation outcomes. Each show has a single guest and is themed around an animal of their choice, in response to the question "If you could be any animal, which would you be?" The tone is consistently light-hearted and humourous, riffing off the fresh perspective gained by imagining life as another creature. The second part of each episode takes the form of a game show, whereby the guest competes against a choesn audience member on questions relating to their animal.   In Episode 1, Elliot interviews Peter Rowland- Australian birdwatching guru, author and photographer- about his chosen animal, the bowerbird. He is challenged by Zac, Annabel and John for the quiz round. Who wins this tight-fought competition? Listen in to find out...  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
