Planet Puffin

Coined "Summer 2019's hottest puffin podcast," Planet Puffin promises listeners an experience that is "silly, serious, scientific, cultural," and (above all else) "all things puffin." The podcast is produced by BBC Radio and follows journalists Emily Knight and Becky Ripley as they venture off the east coast of Scotland to an island that is home to "tens of thousands of seabirds." The pair spends their summer chronicling the adventures of the island's Scottish puffin colony, searching for answers to questions ranging from "What is the secret to their [the puffins] long and happy marriages?" to "How are they coping with climate change?" The series is divided into a dozen episodes, which are short and sweet – usually between ten and twenty minutes. On the site, readers will find all of the episodes, as well as additional resources such as "Thirteen proper puffin facts" and "The ultimate puffin quiz." Episodes are available at the link above and on popular streaming services such as Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
