Steve Moore of BirdwatchRadio informs me that I’ve just made history as the first guest to show up on two programs in succession. Some might imagine that I’ve earned that honor by having so much of value to say while others will argue that I just never shut up. You be the judge!

My last interview with Steve was about the Birds of the Twelve Days of Christmas, a topic I’ve learned a bit about over the years. In this newest program, I’m allowed to pontificate on another subject I know a thing or two about: myself! Oh sure, we also cover 10,000 Birds and the state of nature blogging. I may have even, if I’m not mistaken, mentioned Corey and Charlie. Or not. They’ll have to download and listen to the podcast to find out.

Luckily for Steve, I’m not the only reason a person might want to invest time in this program. He also speaks to our buddy Sharon Stiteler, the ebullient Birdchick as well as John C. Robinson, author of Birding for Everyone: Encouraging People of Color to Become Birdwatchers. Having spoken to both of them, I can attest to how very interesting they are.

Plus, this is an ideal time to give mad props to the host himself. Steve Moore is an engaging interviewer as well as an informed birder. That is a rare combination indeed. He and his engineer Rich Roszel run a professional program that is great fun to be a part of.

Hopefully you’ve heard enough reasons to listen to the 16th edition of BirdwatchRadio. I’m sure I said at least a few inane or regrettable things so be sure to let me know about them in the comments!
