Episode 3*: Timbers on a Boston Island

(FT Michael McGraw and Matthew Halley)

In this episode Billy talks to one of his literary idols, Thomas Palmer, about Palmer’s classic Landscape with Reptile: Rattlesnakes in an Urban World,¬†and to rattler researcher Anne Stengle about the current state of the rattlers of the Blue Hills.

The hosting crew (Billy and Tony, Matthew Halley, and Mike McGraw) had a great time talking/arguing about urban rattlers, island effects, and even facultive parthenogenesis.

*Although in Episode 2 we said the next episode would be about the Pier 53 Skinks, we decided to make that recording a special episode at the end of this season. Stay tuned for that extended, extra-loose edition.
