Jefferson Public Radio Interview with Rusten
Introducing Audiences to California Bird Talk

When the Jefferson Exchange program on Jefferson Public Radio (broadcasting in southern Oregon and northern California) started carrying California Bird Talk in 2009, they interviewed Rusten about the show. The interview has clips from some of the programs as well as Rusten talking about the origins of the show and how he uses clips of bird songs and calls, slowing them down and using analogies to musical instruments and the human voice to understand how the sounds are made.
