Episode #53: An Interview with Bill Thompson, III, Part I

This is part one of an exclusive two-part interview with Bill Thompson, III, long-time co-host of Out There With The Birds.

On March 25th, Bill passed away at the age of 57 after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer. Shortly before his passing, Ben took some time to interview Bill about his life as a birder, magazine editor, and musician. In the first episode, Bill talks about his early years as a birder and the beginnings of Bird Watcher’s Digest, a magazine founded by his parents, Elsa and Bill Thompson, Jr. The conversation then moves on to Bill’s time with a New York City ad agency and how he made his way back to Ohio to join the family business and develop his writing career.
