It was a thrill to be interviewed by Boyd Matson for National Geographic Radio last week. He asked some fun, flavorful, and insightful questions that showed how carefully he had read the book. Listen to the 10-minute interview here.

Here is National Geographic Radio’s intro to the interview:

Carol Ruckdeschel isn’t your typical role model: the roadkill eatin’, pistol totin’, whiskey drinkin’, backwoods livin’ naturalist has plenty of vices. But at the same time, she’s a self-educated sea turtle biologist who is as well respected as anybody on the planet for her understanding of the turtles and the threats they face on Cumberland Island, off Georgia’s coast. Will Harlan¬†shares stories from his new book, Untamed: The Wildest Woman in America and the Fight for Cumberland Island. Ruckdeschel also helped win the fight to create the island’s federal wilderness area to protect all of the island’s inhabitants.¬†
