  • Review from Zoo Professional (yes, there are only 100 of us).

    I have been listening to this podcast for about a month now and I absolutely love it! As a young zoo professional with only about 6 years in the field I find this podcast so helpful, insightful and inspiring! I always find myself thinking “wow I thought I was the only person that felt/thought like this”. Chris and Ari are great to listen to and I hope to be attending a NEI workshop in the near future! Thank you guys so much! Looking forward to more episodes!
