Science, herps, humor: its all here

Absolutely the best herp podcast available, especially for the nerdy or research oriented among us. If you want something beyond herpetoculture, this is for you. The hosts wit and banter makes it all the more enjoyable.

Brilliant

A much-needed academic approach to reptiles and amphibians. Ben and Tom are great at putting high level information into a digestible format for the average enthusiast.

Stellar discussion

Guys, you make my drive to work a little more interesting! I love the scientific papers, that’s something I’m not well versed in, so it’s great to learn more in that area.

In the caecilian episode you made a brief mention of research done by Bill Hayes on juvenile rattle snake envenomation. I immediately called Bill up and told him he was famous! I worked with him for a short time last year, and I guess I didn’t realize how well known he was in the herp world. Anyways, he was happy to hear that you guys mentioned his work. He said his grad students did most of the work.

Keep up the good work, and I would love to hear an episode dedicated to tiger salamanders.
