More pro zoo voices

I’m concerned about the bias toward anti-zoo voices on this podcast. Zoos work with many marine mammal scientists on important conservation work and that should be represented here. I also worry about the quality of the information provided by anti-zoo voices. It is not appropriate for a scientific body to allow the misrepresentation of facts on its podcast.
