Exploring ethical captive management of reptiles & amphibians through the lens of biological science, conservation, and human nature. The Animals at Home Network is a nature-based podcast network and is currently the home of several podcast programs: The Animals at Home Podcast hosted by Dillon Perron, Animals Everywhere hosted by Bryce Broom, Reptiles & Research Podcast hosted by Liam Sinclair and Ellie Hills, and Project Herpetoculture hosted by Phillip Lietz and Roy Arthur Blodgett. Each show on the network brings all members of the reptile community together to discuss breeding, reptile husbandry, scientific research, wildlife conservation, and more!
In this episode, Roy and Phil have a discussion with David Ian Howe! David is an archaeologist, artist, comedian, content creator, and educator who is particularly passionate about ethnocynology – the study of the relationship between humans and dogs. We discuss everything from the process of the domestication of dogs, to the value of interspecies interactions, to some of David’s influences as a creator and educator (shout out Steve Irwin, Dave Chappelle, etc.). This episode is a bit of a deviation from our usual herp-focused content, but remains relevant to our typical subject matter and admittedly has plenty of herp discussion as well. Have a listen!
