Bird geek forgot camera for Taiwan trip

Picture by Christiana Ellis
My buddy Paul the birder was quite chagrined when he set out for 1st leg of Asia trip(Taiwan) and realized he forgot his "beast"-primary bird photo camera. He spent much coin to arrange that "Beasty" be forwarded on to Japan for retrieval on 2nd leg of journey. While he was planning black opp for Godzilla charting in Tokyo bay he got the good news that for some more coin (Japan customs) they'd gladly release it to him.So you can see a happy birder once again.

Podcasters Are Irrelevant?

Do podcasters still have relevance in a new media landscape increasing controlled by corporations and networks? Does any of this really matter outside of our self-created echo-chambers? I invite your comments and contributions to the discussions here.
