Strange By Nature Podcast

The natural world can be a strange place. Strange by Nature, a science podcast launched in 2021, aims to be listeners' "guide to the strange, weird and unbelievable side of nature." Each week, hosts Kirk Mona, Rachel Giemza, and Victoria Thompson - three Minnesota-based naturalists and environmental educators - present a trio of stories of the strange, grounded in science and bolstered by a sense of humor. For instance, Episode 31 ("Your Flamingo Seems to be on Fire") explores the challenges of determining when a species has gone extinct, whether mosquitos favor humans of certain blood types, and if the myth of the Phoenix is rooted in historical events. Episode 39 ("The Supervolcano that (Probably) Won't Kill Us") tackles a man who married a crane, the Yellowstone supervolcano, and research into birds navigating by smell. Readers interested in science, nature, and the environment who wish to learn more about the wild and weird diversity of our world will not want to miss this podcast. Listeners can subscribe on platforms such as Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, and Google Podcasts, and follow along on Twitter (@strange_nat_pod) for updates.
