Bird brain expert Erich Jarvis joins Jason on The Wild Life to talk all things avian, from a bird famous for its dancing abilities to the neurobiology of bird song. They also chat about Erich's decision to pursue science instead of a career as a professional dancer. Follow Erich on Twitter: @erichjarvi.

Jason is an animal behaviour researcher, science communicator and wildlife-nerd extraordinaire whose work has been featured in countless science blogs and publications (Scientific AmericanIo9 and Conservation Magazine to name a few). Each episode of The Wild Life is essentially an in-depth conversation with someone whose work or interests revolve around animals or wildlife, on topics ranging from the science of animal behaviour and conservation biology, to animal ethics, the wildlife in your own backyard – and beyond.
