Funny and inspirational.
The host does a great job of keeping the conversation flowing while allowing the guest zookeeper to be the star of each episode. A must listen for anyone that aspires to work with animals or who just wants to hear some great stories about zookeeping
I love hearing about the real stories of zookeepers, what their days are like, their stories,and how they started out.The host does a great job getting to the heart of their stories, keeping it interesting, and puts them at center-stage! Love it!
If you like animals this is a great show
