My favorite part of the video occurs when they show James hiking through the forest hunting for lichens and there is a voice-over of James saying "I think of myself as a bounty hunter." On the weekly national broadcast they did a five-minute piece in which they briefly discussed lichens and heavily referenced the above video. Online there is a transcript and a link to an mp3 of the broadcast. There are also some lichen photos that viewers/listeners sent in to NPR after hearing the program:

It's great to see a piece like this promoting lichenology in the media!
