    Being Birds Back
    Great episode with Tenijah! I’ve listened to her podcast since the beginning. It’s great food for thought for all birders! I miss Bill very much, but ,Bob, you have really provided the same quality content that makes your podcast so special!

    Wonderful Nature Podcast
    Just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed this podcast. I started listening a while ago to Bob and Bill and I was drawn to their fun and playful banter and the manner in which they presented the natural world. Rather than solely focusing on facts, they talked about nature in a personal and story-filled way that makes the listener connect on a deeper level. Their lighthearted discussions about related myths, historical practices, or personal stories touched on one’s connection with nature in a meaningful way and worked to inspire curiosity and a desire to create one’s own experiences in nature. I was quite saddened with the loss of Bill who had a great enthusiasm and passion for the natural world. Although his jovial banter with Bob is greatly missed, I am glad that the podcast continues. The new guest co-hosts are very knowledgeable and continue to make the subject matter entertaining. Thanks for making such a great nature podcast and for all the work that goes into it.

    I didn’t hit send when I wrote this after your last show .... sending now welcome back - great show - will check out the links .... ❤️ ————————————————————- I am so sad and sorry for you and his family... I can not tell you how important these shows were / are to me , when I discovered your podcast while home during the pandemic. It literally was my only light. You both fed off each other with the back and forth laughs, facts and stories... I counted the days before each new episode. Listening with my coffee on Tuesday mornings wondering what would be the topic knowing I would hear your voices filled with love for each other and the Natural world - was so contagious. The show inspired me to not just go outside and stay awhile but to paint / write poems about nature - I never appreciated nature as much until you both taught me to really look and listen (Bob, I have a hard time with bird calls too, might take an online Cornell class) I will never forget how you both ‘saved’ me - I am not inclined to feel depressed but I felt lonely at times until you both came into my house here in NYC... during COvid confinement . I can never thank you enough and I really wished I wrote this before his passing like I always planned to do. Paying homage to him with the continuance of this show is the medicine WE all need - I am planning to use some of your episodes for educational programs. With condolences and love - your eternal FAN- Kathy❤️

    Needing Out on Nature
    I’ve been exploring nature podcasts as we recently started our own, “Naturally Florida” and this podcast has been wonderful to listen to! I love the genuine nature and curiosity of Bob. He does an amazing job with his guests who are always super informative and relatable. We can never know everything about nature so I have enjoyed learning on my commutes thanks to Nature Guys. Keep it going!

    I love this podcast. It is one of my favorites. It is always so informative and entertaining. So many great topics, too. Thanks for sharing your passion with us. It is greatly appreciated. If you ever want to do some ocean topics I know a few scientists who would be great. Laz -

    I’m quite picky about my nature podcasts but this one has me hooked! The hosts are so knowledgeable, but in a really approachable way that reminds me of geeking out with my buddies after a good day in the woods. 6/5 stars :)

    So glad to have this show in my life during quarantine. I listen to over 70 podcasts and this is definitely one of my favorites. Nice length and good nature content. Thanks, guys!

    Young naturalist Charles van Rees
    Very excited that you had Charles on the podcast!! I have been a friend of his for a few years, so perhaps a little bias. He has such a great way of engaging young naturalist and communicating his experience as an emerging scientist. Also a great story teller, get him to tell some of his amazing stories.

  • debecc
    Thank you
    I recently found your podcast and have enjoyed the banter between you both. (As well as the great info). So sorry to about Bill. The natural world is better for his presence and ability to share his love of nature. Thank you.

    Incredible People
    Thank you so much for the constant smiles and for the laughs you shared as you taught about nature. Bill will be missed so dearly. His legacy will live on in this show and the way that the rest of us follow in your footsteps to keep teaching people about nature 💜

    I learned so much from the Nature Guys!
    I’m a naturalist from a suburb of Chicago who is still not back to work because of Covid-19. Listening to the Nature Guys keeps me current. I’ve learned a lot from their valuable podcast. Thank you!!

    Beth and guys
    Your podcast is having a huge effect on our three generation family group hunkered down on the shores of Lake Superior. We have an amazing amount of birds visiting feeders after following your suggestions. Your activities for kids help us “step outside and stay awhile”. Thanks we appreciate all your nature sharing.
  • JFrankGeorge
    A real treat!
    Listening to Bob and Bill talking about their passions in/for nature has been a wonderful treat for me! I moved abroad from the US Midwest a few years ago and found this show during a moment of homesickness. The first episode I listened to was about the Robin; I chose it because we have different red-breasted buddies here and I missed my old friends. The episode was a balm for me! And I’ve loved the conversations ever since. Thank you Bill and Bob for sharing your knowledge and love of the natural world with us in this way- please keep doing what you’re doing!
  • DirtNutson
    Interesting and Informative
    This is a really good podcast for anyone with an interest in wild things. My wife and I love it!
  • Sean and Allison
    Nature Time
    If you've ever wondered what chickadees are about, where squirrels go in the winter, or who has been pollinating your flower garden, Bill and Bob are your people. This podcast feels like sipping lemonade while watching the birdfeeder on a nice spring day.

  • EC035711
    My new favorite podcast
    I just recently found Nature Guys and have been binging all their episodes! I love the balance of fun and learning they have in their episodes. They are both super knowledgeable and I’ve been learning a lot! Plus as a Midwest listener, their topics are perfect to help me learn more about my surroundings!
  • Emkty182
    I LOVE this podcast! These two are funny, witty and very knowledgeable! They share just enough information to teach you about the subject, but not too much to where you’re overwhelmed and forgot the fun facts, or even better, the new term or word of the episode! I started listening a few months ago and enjoyed the episodes so much that I started from the beginning and am listening to them all! I definitely recommend giving them a listen if you’re even remotely interested in nature!

  • Jane of Vermont
    Wonderful motivator it get outside and stay awhile!!!
    I love this podcast! I commute 2 hours round trip every day for work and this podcast and a few birding podcast are my favorite things to listen to. I have almost completed all of them since it began. The Nature Guys covers a wide variety of nature topics and each episode is a new adventure filled with stories, facts and humor. So happy I found it and hope to visit Cincinnati Nature Center the next time I visit my daughter in Kentucky. I spread the word about your podcast all the time and if you still distribute business cards I will give those out too.
