  • Produced for WCAI's Sonic IDs
    (Part of a collaboration between Transom and Cowbird)

    Notes from Jay Allison

    Samantha Broun, who produced this one, works here at Atlantic Public Media and manages This Sonic ID is a testament to the power of enthusiasm. Sam says, "I met Mary Beers through my mother who had taken a guided walk with her at the Green Briar Nature Center on Cape Cod. My mother said she had never met anyone more enthusiastic about nature. She was right." We hereby prove the advantage sound has over writing.
