Ahhh, THIS is the TAL I like. It's so interesting to me when people are obsessed with something like a hobby that consumes them, especially something as obscure as this one. Early on, it seemed to me that Edwin was a narcissistic sociopath, along with most of that entire community. The entitlement is disgusting. When the posts from their forum were read, I just pictured every single member being Frasier clones.

at first I thought this was just going to be a rather humorous podcast, sadly it became clear that Edwin Rist was a psychopath, an entitled, immoral psychopath, I found myself utterly disgusted with this manipulative little bastard who for his own ends ruined and nearly destroyed an important ornithological collection, he should have been jailed and I hope he is

Great episode, frustrating ending with they lack of cooperation from the people with stolen feathers. Well done story and investigation, I feel I would wanted to know also.
