The Human Nature (HN) podcast features a series of 30 minute interviews with prominent persons, designed to mainstream natural history in such a way as to improve conservation outcomes. Each show has a single guest and is themed around an animal of their choice, in response to the question "If you could be any animal, which would you be?" The tone is consistently light-hearted and humourous, riffing off the fresh perspective gained by imagining life as another creature. The second part of the show is a quiz round with the guest competing against three randomly selected listeners.

S1E4: Jonesy and Birds of Paradise
2020 Jul 2235m 31s
Human Nature is a podcast run for charity, featuring interviews with celebrities & environmentalists, followed by a game show round. Each week, a well-known guest is featured, talking about their own life story and a favourite animal of theirs. This is followed by 10 trivia questions against fans of the show. 100% of funds raised are donated directly to protecting threatened species. It's designed so anyone can listen in, with the intention of raising awareness for a worthy cause in a light-hearted manner. You might think of it as Red Nose Day combined with Desert Island Discs for conservation... if that helps.
