Understandably, there‚Äôs a bit of a Christmassy theme to this week‚Äôs show. Heather is looking forward to tasty homemade sage and onion stuffing (and, of course, the Wiggly Christmas lunch). Richard declines to write 10 facts about himself for the new collaborative catalogue so we‚Äôll have to wait and see what Heather comes up with! Perhaps we should have a list of 10 facts about Richard from Wiggly podcast listeners instead? Any suggestions?
Anyway, moving on, the team have quite an in depth discussion about the way that wildlife issues are presented in the media. Is it just a bit too sanitised? Should the producers in fact be talking to people who live and work in the country about gritty issues faced on a daily basis?
