Wholesome science and pet content

The best pawdcast. Excellent content, science, and animals. I’ve learned so much, best guests from the science community, fun, and banter. Remember, kindness, empathy, and cuteness matters. Five start content.

Thank you!! Love to you all.

One of my favorite podcasts

This podcast is always entertaining, informative and heart-warming. I love listening to scientists from around the world talk about their work and their fields of science. The pet stories are entertaining, and there’s even a pet science story every week. In the family time section, the Zackowskis invite us into their living room to tell stories about Bunsen and Beaker, and now Ginger the cat, and share a bit of their lives with us each week. I smile and laugh, and learn so much from this podcast.
