    129: Geoduck

    Geoduck? More like geoyuck! (or geoyum ;) ) This abomination is the subject of many exasperated sighs, intermittent revulsion, and general body horror. Come learn about it, won't you?

How is this a clam and how has the rest of Class Bivalvia not kicked it to the curb? What is broadcast spawning? And is this the by product of a geodude and golduck sin? 
     
    Mukbang if you dare.

Zookeeper Stacey ,

Honestly the best podcast ever <3

I am a Zookeeper from Australia that works with Australian native animals and I have recently stumbled upon this amazing podcast - and I am absolutely in love with it!!
Love the humor, the total relatable content about life as a zookeeper, the amazing insight into all sorts of amazing animals and zookeeper issues - pretty much just everything about this podcast is awesome! Thank you so much for keeping up the most amazing work - I have been happily binge-listening to this for the last few weeks and am thoroughly enjoying every minute :)
I honestly wish I could give more stars because your podcast totally deserves it!

Funny and informative

Love listening to the Keeper Chat podcast. Listen to it every morning when getting ready for work and just sets the mood for the day! So informative and it’s like having a conversation between friends, especially with the random tangents!

Odd teats

I love this podcast, my new go-to when I need some laughs but also want to learn some new things about animals. Flora and fauna are relatable in so many ways. Had my friend and I PISSING laughing while listening to the red fox episode yesterday and now she’s subscribed too.
Also, Fauna - you’ll be disturbed to know that echidnas also have no teats like the platypus, youre welcome.
