We’re your podcast hosts!

The podcast is hosted by the Zoo’s communications team, Bri Wright and Lauren Delgado. This duo invites experts from around the Zoo to answer their burning questions, get an inside look at how the Zoo operates, learn the tricks of the zookeeping trade and so much more. Each episode takes a deep dive into a new topic and there’s no shortage of fun to be had!

Episodes will be released on a biweekly basis – every other Sunday morning, so mark your calendars to listen to each new topic as it comes out. Each episode is around 30-45 minutes in length, making it the perfect listen on your commute to work, while cooking, winding down from a long day or whenever else you listen to your podcasts!
