Vet Life with Dr. Cliff

“I have never been more invested with a podcast then I am with this show.The hosts aren’t afraid to invest in their nonsense, making their nonsense a fully explored reality. Every episode is a delight with Dr.Cliff. As the ending segments always tie the idea together in an impressively produced improv scene presenting the idea at its most logical conclusion. His knowledge about animals makes this podcast a very highly underrated show that should get more attention and exposure. I highly recommend listening to him as you will learn a thing or two from Dr. Cliff!”
