Delightful and imformative

I absolutely love listening to this podcast. I enjoy the recount of Blathers’ description, as well as the deep dive info about each creature/fossil. Also the conservation efforts and what a listener can do (for instance, I live in a monarch migration path and got good info on how to help our butterflies, looking for my native milkweed to plant!). Hosts voices are soothing as well. Looking forward to more episodes!

So sweet and informative!

This podcast is a delight. The hosts are engaging, informed, and make you feel like you’re hanging out with your nerdy friends. I really appreciate that they highlight conservation issues with the species they talk about. Animal Crossing Wild World is probably part of why I’m a wildlife biologist now, and I adore that there’s a podcast out there now that goes into more depth than Blathers’ batherings.

These ladies are marvelous

This is the most adorable podcast that I didn’t know I needed. I love listening to them read what Blathers tells you at the beginning of each episode. Each episode is so entertaining and educational. I can’t wait to see how they evolve this going forward!
