Thank you for the time and effort you have taken for all of your episodes. You have an inate (spelling?) ability to engage and inform. Your humour has me laughing out loud when I go for my walks and I have a compulsion (not yet acted upon) to tell a passer by the amazing facts I am learning. Your...Read full review »

I think it’s a really great podcast to listen to don’t have anything to do but the episodes are getting more of the adult side of things so I think you could put maybe some more kid appropriate episodes on there you would be appreciated but still great podcast

When I first started listening I LOVED binging the episodes that were actually about different species, but it seems like he’s taken a right turn on his content. I hope it reruns to being about animals.

I have listened to ten or so episodes. 2 stars since it’s decent content if you can stomach the host pushing his propaganda and political agenda.

Every great ape’s in great shape For the weight they’re packin’ Every peacock’s flight shows the price Of its life of fashion Every snake and vole have a role And a niche to crash in Every giant squid once lived In our minds as kraken Every zebra’s stripe help it hide Is a thesis from...Read full review »

I was looking for a podcast about animals and the first thing I found was your podcast. It was the perfect podcast as it’s explained every fact about many animals. I’m pretty sure I’ve listened to every episode on Spotify at least twice.

I would absolutely love it if you made an episode on the capybara!!

Hi I’m 10 years old my name is Anabelle and I really like this podcast so much. But, I do have one suggestion for if you don’t already have it. I know this sounds a bit silly… but I’m was thinking you could maybe add like a kind of pig to this podcast? You don’t have to but I recommend it… if you...Read full review »

Hi, I’m Rylee and I am 13 years old and love your podcast so much. All your facts are amazing and interesting. I was wondering if you could do a hedgehog podcast? Thanks!

Hi I’m Cillian and I’m 7 years old and live in Arlington, VA. I started listening to your show a month ago and can’t stop. I’ve learned a lot. I want to make a request, could you do an episode about mega mouth sharks? Thanks!
Snoobins via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/02/23
Man! The Harris’s Hawk episode is hands down the best episode so far (I’m listening chronologically). Well done! So good!
CromosLux9999 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/13/23
I listen to your podcast while I’m working, and it’s something I always look forward to every time an episode releases. I’m a huge fan of the shift to interviews on evolutionary and genetic behavior on the human species. However I would like to see an episode on the Dumbo Octopus!

One of the best science podcasts we’ve ever experienced! Always succinct and interesting!

Hi Macken! I absolutely love this podcast! I love animals and I always look forward to when new episodes come out. I was very excited to find out that you have done an episode about goldfish. I have 6 goldfish and that episode taught me more about goldfish than I thought I ever knew. Could you do...Read full review »

I heard about your podcast from a random stranger and now I am trying to spread the word myself. I am an avid birder and just love the California Condor, Artic Tern and Pigeon episodes. The pigeon is the most underappreciated bird and your episode changed my view of them forever. I hope you...Read full review »

Macken, you are so much more helpful to us than you know. I personally always find myself listening to your podcasts when I’m especially anxious because I find something so calming about your voice and something so fascinating about your content. So I just want to say thank you, with everything...Read full review »

While the podcast is well written and interesting. Not all the facts portrayed are true such as white-tailed deer having great eye sight to go along with their unbelievable sense of smell. White-tailed deer are blind by human standards and pick up movement more than anything else. 20/100 human...Read full review »

I love how the show is brainy but also casual and entertaining. You have a great voice for podcasting. I'm always looking out for when you're going to start the next sentence with your refrain "THIS ANIMAL". It's obvious that you put in extra effort to make sure that your...Read full review »

This is exactly what I was looking for when I Googled “animal facts podcast.” It’s accompanied me during my commute, travelling, and slow days at work. I appreciate that it covers all types of animals, not just the cute fluffy ones. I also like how Macken sticks to the facts and isn’t shy to...Read full review »

Love this podcast. Very interesting topics that are engaging and enlightening. Thank you so much for making such a great show
anne kerrigan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/23/22
Episodes are short but packed with interesting information that is presented with wry humour, and (bad) puns (narwhal episode for one). Additionally, Mackan is sensitive to his listening audience and produces a family friendly podcast. Highly recommended.

Hello from Northern Ireland, At one point I spent time looking for an animal based podcast and I’m so glad I did, and species has swiftly become one of my favourites, I’ve recently done my A-level exams and this made revision much easier. I would like to request the cockchafer, a beetle found...Read full review »

Hi macken, my names Addie and I’m 10 years old, I really like this podcast and would recommend it to anyone,and I reckon you should do an episode on the blob fish and axolotl.
Addie hi via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/04/22
It’s a podcast you can both fall asleep to and also keep you interested in your commute it’s calming educational and the perfect balance between intellectual and conversational

I love this podcast very much! It is great! But can you PLEASE do a Q&A on Spotify? It helps listeners interact with podcasters better and gives you good ideas! Do episode on WEEVIL!
