  • Great podcast!

    Elle does such an amazing job with her guests and content curation. As a bonafide museum geek and taxidermist who has worked in the natural history field for 27 years, I can’t get enough. Every episode is delightful, captivating, and informative. Specimens peels back the curtain to peek behind the scenes where the all of the science magic happens, a rare treat!
