NM0002 – Bug Hunt
I have to admit I didn’t know how tough it would be to juggle full-time mommying with reporting, editing and podcasting, but it’s a challenge I’m certainly enjoying. And, based on the number of people who subscribed to New Mexicast after just one episode (“End of Trail”) it seems you’re enjoying the end results too!
This week’s story is about a program at the Sandia Mountain Natural History Center in the mountains outside of Albuquerque called “Insects, Arthropods and Arachnids.” When I saw a notice for the class in the local paper, I pictured lots of kids chasing bugs and thought it would make a great story. After you view it, let me know if you agree by adding a comment (just click the “comments” button above the video).
By the way, if you want more information about the Sandia Mountain Natural History Center’s programs, check out their website at: www.nmnaturalhistory.org/smnhc
I also wanted to mention that there are two versions of this video uploaded here on the site, so if you are playing it on your iPod, click the “iPod” button below the player. Otherwise it will play the larger, QuickTime version.
Thanks again for watching, subscribing and for all of the comments you’ve posted so far.
See you again in two weeks (even though I say “next week” in the video).
P.S. For those of you who are having trouble seeing the stories, please make sure you have the latest version of QuickTime. Some people have had to completely uninstall QuickTime from their computers and then reinstall it from scratch. The latest version can be found at: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/ (Then click on “Download QuickTime.”)
