I’ve got lots of people lined up for interviews, which means more than one episode of Jive Talking per week. Here are listening/subscription options.

Czech served as a conservation biologist in the headquarters of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from 1999-2017 and as a visiting professor of natural resources economics with Virginia Tech through most of that period.
