Rick Kleffel, Fortean and editor of The Agony Column, has broadcast an audio report on National Public Radio (NPR) about dragons.
It can now be accessed for listening by clicking here on “Dragons Get a Modern Image Makeover.”
The description of the program notes:

I’ve added visuals here for Cryptomundo readers so you’ll have something to view as you listen to Kleffel’s audio, if you wish.
