Even if you somehow managed to miss my recent blog post on “Crasher Squirrel,” by now you’ve likely seen the famous image of the photogenic fur ball, or one of the thousands of Photoshopped, squirrel-enhanced images sprouting up like acorns across the Web. Now Boyd Matson, host of National Geographic Weekend, has gotten a one-on-one interview with squirrel-crashed photographer Melissa Brandts.
