Parrot Podcasts

This weekend’s topic: parrot-related podcasts. I’ve found that there are quite a few and some are very informative.  I like listening to them while I have some sort of tedious task to do, like entering data into a spreadsheet.

1) Wings N’ Things

As of this writing, there are 41 episodes of this podcast. It’s now hosted by Barbara Heidenreich and Robin Shewokis.

The main site, Pet Life Radio, has podcasts about all sorts of pets.  The same ads and jokes played again and again get a bit irritating, but generally, the podcasts are pretty good.

2) Ask the Bird Experts

For this one, you enter your E-mail address, name and a phone number and you can listen to a parrot podcast Sunday night. The podcasts are usually available for download for a few days after they are played. A different guest speaker is interviewed each week, and then he or she will answer some questions from the listeners.  The questions can be typed in on the website.

If you enter your E-mail, you will get a weekly E-mail reminding you of each Sunday’s call and who the guest speaker is.

3) Parrot Science

This site has parrot news updates and some podcasts in the middle column.

If you know of any I missed, please let me know in the comments section below!

    I listen to the Wings ‘n Things podcasts (http://www.PetLifeRadio.com) with Robin Shewokis & Barbara Heidenreich all the time! I love them… they are so informative and fun to listen to. The jokes and commercials don’t bother me at all. I’m sure they have to pay for the show somehow.
    Anyway, I’ve learned so much about keeping my parrots happy and healthy.

    I would recommend these podcasts to everyone!

    Yeah, all the commercials are probably necessary and certainly don’t prevent me from listening. Barbara and Robin are really knowledgeable, and they’ve had a lot of interesting guests as well. I like the horse podcast on that same site as well.
