    22: Big Snakes & "Offensive" Art w/Kina Mae Campbell of Exotic Entities

    22: Big Snakes & "Offensive" Art w/Kina Mae Campbell of Exotic Entities

    I first “met” Kina Mae Campbell because I was a fan of her artwork, so you can imagine my surprise when I found out she was a reptile keeper too! Join Kina and I as we discuss her diverse collection, how she chooses what she wants to breed versus what animals she deems pets, and of course we have to talk about plants a bit! I hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it!

    18: Studying Malaria in the Saban Anole w/ Gina Zwicky

    This week I interviewed conservation biologist Gina Zwicky! Gina is an incredible interviewee and walked me through her research with malaria in the Saban Anole, her experience as a private reptile keeper and a biologist, and her work studying chytrid fungus! I highly recommend following Gina on Twitter to keep up with her frog watching, swamp-kitten-saving, and sulcate owning antics!

ConundrumFischer ,

Great podcast

The cohost talks way too much. Often interrupting the guest while they are saying something interesting. She needs to learn that people don’t come to this podcast to listen to her. We come to listen to the guests.

Is Joe ever coming back?

Is there going to be a regular show again? Dominique is very knowledgeable however the topic of conversation on being non binary or a woman in the hobby is becoming draining as a regular listener. I’m here to learn about reptiles and hear about the collections of amazing people- I don’t care if they are men women whatever. This isn’t denying that there are people who the hobby has been and is less welcoming to; however we don’t need to hear about that every week and what it was like to be XYZ in the reptile community or if we do can you get your own feed? This podcast is so far from Joe’s format and content it shouldn’t be under the same label.

Y.A.M. Productions ,

Great consistent content

Can always count being entertain with this guy
