I've posted about this a couple of times on Twitter, but I feel like many of you may not have seen it and I WANT TO SHARE IT because it was so, so good.
Wild Ones on the 99% Invisible show is one of the best podcasts I've heard in a while because it uses music and voice to tell stories in a compelling way that, if it were a book, I would describe as "un-put-downable." It's one of those that I listened to on my commute home and then stayed in my car for an extra 5 minutes just to hear the end of it because I could not imagine tuning out. It's poignant and beautiful.
I cannot embed it here, so go to the 99% Invisible site and listen to it there. Or better yet, subscribe to 99% Invisible. It's worth it.
And if it doesn't put Wild Ones on your wish list, well then... I must not be doing this blog right!
Below is the book trailer for Wild Ones: A Sometimes Dismaying, Weirdly Reassuring Story About Looking at People Looking at Animals in America. It's a good one, so I urge you to watch it. But the podcast is amazing. I hope you give it a listen.
And you can bet you'll see a review of this book on this blog as soon as I get my hands on it.
