All Creatures Great and Okay is a podcast in which two unqualified nerds discuss animals. In each episode, co-hosts Randi and Nathaniel investigate a different species, genus, or family of animals, bringing their unique perspective as two people educated in the humanities. So yes, it is a podcast that is simultaneously too broad and too narrow in its scope. Enjoy, I guess.

Fun and informative!
A podcast that doesn’t take itself too seriously, with a pair of hosts who entertain as well as educate, despite themselves :) I find myself laughing out loud as I listen and looking forward to each new installment.
Entertaining exploration of animals through the lens of pop culture!
All Creatures Great and Okay is an entertaining and surprisingly informative ramble through the animal kingdom set against a rich backdrop of pop-culture esoterica. Wide-eyed co-adventurers Randi and Nathaniel present listeners with a diverse series of animal portraits punctuated by engaging segments, songs, and strikingly accurate impressions of animals and humans alike.
If you love Kraven the Hunter and animals – or just animals – you’ll enjoy this unique new podcast!
