Learn Australian English in this episode of the Aussie English podcast!

One of the reasons I love doing podcasts is because I get to interview and chin-wag with people.

I am so proud to introduce you to Dr. John Martin of the Taronga Institute for Science and Learning!

Dr. Martin of Taronga Zoo recently got his research paper published in Science, the prestigious science magazine.

Together with his team, the paper titled “Innovation and geographic spread of a complex foraging culture in an urban parrot” talked about these cockatoos who have mastered dumpster diving. Kind of like the bin chicken, isn’t it?

If you want to help their team observe these clever birds, check out this app so you can help them in their research. I also recommend you to learn more about The Clever Cockie Project!

        1. Hey Huu, if you “flex” it means to show you muscles. And so it can be used informally to mean that you’re showing off, often by mentioning something in conversation “I’ve got a Ferrari” – showing you’re rich, you’re flexing.
