This episode I am joined by Laerke Rosenberg aka Josser of the popular YouTube channel, JossersJungle! Jossers’ YouTube channel has grown to +40k subscribers in less than 1 year. We discuss her channel’s niche, her large reptile collection and her experience working with elephants in the circus.
Joey Mullen, aka The king of DIY has joined me for today’s episode! I have been a fan of Joey’s YouTube channel for several years and it was a real treat having him on the show!
A few weeks ago, Joey released the following video on his channel to celebrate his One Millionth subscriber milestone:
After listening to the video, I felt compelled to have a conversation with him because he spoke about what I believe to be the most important reason a person can get involved with an animal hobby (even more so than conservation and education). That reason can be summarized in one word: PURPOSE.
Joey’s life was in a dark place and the fish hobby pulled him out and sent his life in a positive direction to the place he is now. In the podcast, we discuss exactly how something like that can occur. In particular, we discuss the responsibility that comes with owning a pet and how important that can be for an individual, especially for an individual who has found themselves on a negative life path.
Joey also shares with us the history of his YouTube Channel including the several triumphs and failures along the way. There is a lot of content in this episode, enjoy!
