Murder? You bet it is. When we think of predators, we generally think of animals that kill other animals. But plant-eaters are killers, too. Listen here to a cereal killer confess to its heartless crimes.
My goal each week for the “All Things Natural” podcast is to throw in a kitchen sink’s worth of topical matter. One week I might write about how your beloved pet dog is really a wolf (the DNA doesn’t lie), and the next contemplate the sex lives of trees or the lonely life of the bobcat.
I write the pieces not just for nature lovers, but also with the idea of attracting even those readers and listeners who wouldn’t touch an American toad, slime mold, or magnificent bear dropping with a ten-foot pole.
The podcast is produced by Mountain Lake PBS’s Josh Clement, who also wrote, performed on acoustic guitar, and recorded the original theme music that launches each installment. “All Things Natural” has been published continuously since 1987 and approaches its one-millionth published word. It currently appears in the Bedford, NY Record-Review. Listen to past episodes by visiting Mountain Lake PBS’s Borderless North webpage at mountainlake.org/bn.
Author, naturalist, photographer, columnist, and Adirondack guide Edward Kanze lives along the Saranac River.
His essay about the passenger pigeon, "In Search Of Something Lost," was named by the John Burroughs Association as the Outstanding Published Natural History Essay of 2004. The Burroughs awards, bestowed annually at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, are America's highest honors in nature-writing. The same essay earned a gold medal in environmental writing by the International Regional Magazine Association. PBS featured Ed and his writing in the 2008 documentary, "The Adirondacks."
