ACF has partnered with Remember the Wild – Australia’s first nature connection charity – to bring you this special three-part live podcast series exploring how, even in isolation, nature is truly all around us.

During episode 1 “Backyards & Balconies” we will:

  • Meet your hosts: author & journalist Benjamin Law and managing director of nature connection charity Remember the Wild Chris McCormack – with guest speaker, television & radio presenter Osher Günsberg
  • Hear how to make the most of nature in your patch, however big or small – with creative ideas on bringing birds to the ‘burbs or creating your very own frog bog
  • Join Chris for a tour of his own backyard, meeting some of the creatures we all share our daily lives with

Watch episode 1: Backyards and Balconies


In episode 2 “The Great Indoors” on Wednesday 27 May we'll venture from the outside world to the great indoors:

  • This episode, Ben and Chris look into the lives of our unofficial residents. There’s plenty of nature in our homes whether we know it or not – spiders and insects find many of their needs met under our roof
  • We call our mates the Kates (Australian comedians Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan, as seen on ABC’s Get Krack!n and The Katering Show) to recount their most surprising encounters with these unexpected house guests

Watch episode 2: The Great Indoors


We'll wrap up (for now!) with our final episode “Mite-y Close & Personal” on Wednesday 3 June:

  • Meet your hosts: Chris from Remember the Wild will be joined by actor & director Bjorn Stewart – with guest speakers, former Australian Senator Scott Ludlam and writer & actor Nakkiah Lui
  • Then we'll get as close to our living situation as possible: our own bodies. We can find ourselves acting as a host to any number of fascinating creatures!
