MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Sept. 3, 2020 – The Ducks Unlimited (DU) Podcast launched Season 3 on Sept. 1, kicking off a full slate of engaging topics and guests for the fall. The DU Podcast is unique, offering a wide variety of waterfowl-focused discussions including hunting, management, research, biology and timely migration updates. Surpassing more than 300,000 downloads in the first 7 months of publishing, the DU Podcast is the go-to resource for all things waterfowl.
“We set out to create a high-quality podcast that gave an additional touch point of conservation, research and hunting information to DU’s more than 1 million supporters,” said Clay Baird, DU Podcast producer and manager of video production. “The podcast gives us an opportunity to dig a little deeper into our overall messages and provides a platform for our scientists, editors, contributors and partners. The engagement based on our first two seasons has us really excited about the potential growth of this program.”
The DU Podcast is hosted by Chris Jennings, senior editor of Ducks Unlimited magazine and Dr. Mike Brasher, DU’s waterfowl scientist. The pair bring a light-hearted, conversational tone to a broad range of waterfowl topics and the organization’s conservation mission. A wide variety of guests, featuring DU biologists, agency partners, scientists and well-known hunting industry personalities round out a robust schedule for listeners during Season 3.
“We encourage anyone interested in DU, conservation, waterfowl research, along with duck and goose hunters to tune in to the DU Podcast. There’s a little something for everyone,” Baird explained. “I’m very excited about Season 3 due to the quality of the content and our fantastic sponsors.”
