He means the scientists and specialists featured on each episode. The scientists provide the factual answers to all the questions posed by Lucius, who represents not only himself as a nature enthusiast, but the vast majority of people who love nature, yet may not know where to find accurate information on their favourite topics. Lucius acts as the bridge between science and the public by making hard-to-understand facts about the natural world more accessible for everyone.
“Both Gordie and I probably had some imposter syndrome at the start of this,” says Robinson. “We’re not biologists, but if you spend enough time and you’re excited enough about a certain topic, you can become really well-versed and provide value to other people on that topic.”
On a more personal level, both Lucius and Robinson have thrown themselves body and soul into the making of Frick, I Love Nature, both giving the gift of knowledge and receiving it at the same time. This comes in the form of a heightened appreciation for nature. In a simple moment, Robinson describes his observation of a robin during the spring. Thanks to what he learned in creating Frick, I Love Nature, he was able to identify the bird’s behaviour as a mating ritual.
