Our award-winning Get Birding podcast helps everyone, anywhere, discover more about the birds on our doorsteps. This entertaining cross-generational series is aimed at beginners, families and diverse audiences to make birdwatching accessible to all, facing issues around diversity and democratisation of nature head on.
We believe that access to nature should be a right, not a privilege.

Now heading towards it’s 3rd series, Get Birding is unique in featuring musicians like Sam Lee, Jason Singh and Fyfe Dangerfield who have been inspired by birds, with their work playing out each episode. Listeners’ stories also create an engaged, valued Get Birding community. Our partners including RSPB, National Trust and the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust featured in items across the series. Get Birding engages with some of the most challenging issues concerning diversity, equality and inclusion in the Nature sector – an area for which the podcast was recognised with a Silver award at the 2022 Anthem Awards.

With education often in the headlines during lockdown 2020, global schools group Cognita wanted to raise their profile as a thought leader for the sector. They commissioned Peanut & Crumb to produce their first branded podcast series, Challenging Education, to discuss topical issues around schooling aimed at both teachers and parents across the world.

The fortnightly six episode series was hosted by two of the Cognita team interviewing rotating guests. We media trained the presenters to prepare for audio broadcasting then recorded episodes remotely with contributors around the world from Hong Kong to Spain to Latin America.

Themes included teacher wellbeing during lockdown; Black Lives Matter protests and how its issues translate into education; and going back to the classroom after months of home schooling.

One episode featured TV child psychologist Professor Tanya Byron offering parents advice to help their children, and themselves, manage anxiety as lockdown lifted and schools started to reopen. We also filmed this episode for Cognita’s YouTube channel.
