Meddling With Nature Podcast

missing image

We are taxidermists, artists, printmakers, performers, collectors, advocates and anything we need to be to carry out our work as naturalists. Each week Jeremy Johnson, Nate Wessel, Corinna Young, Mike Price, and guests, discuss Life, Death, and the Process that transforms one to another. Join us for our delightfully charming, wonderfully thought provoking, and sometimes comical discussions ranging anywhere from the ethics of taxidermy and preservation to bone cleaning and stuffing tigers.
