This podcast is great for learning about the animals I've loved since I was a kid in greater detail. The first episode was a great overview of reptiles and amphibians in general, and I can't wait to go into greater detail about specific groups. Mark, Ethan, and Gabriel are charming hosts and are easy to listen to.
For those who enjoy the Tetrapod Zoology Podcast and others like it, I strongly recommend this podcast as well!
You'll Come Away Smarter
What is it like sitting in a room with some herpetological obsessives? You'll find out here! It is easy listening to Mark, Gabriel, and Ethan. I found myself looking up terms they used and thinking about the topics they raised long after. You can sit back and enjoy the easy banter during that long commute or else use this as a learning tool to help your own growth. Whatever you are in the mood for!
Love all the herpetological goofiness
This podcast offers a wonderful mix of herpetological goofiness and thoroughly researched and well cited science. I can’t get enough of Gabriel’s extensive taxonomic expertise, Ethan’s enthusiasm and banter about herps, and I also really love Mark’s many puns. Also Mark’s accent is rather delightful and fun to do impressions of.
