In this episode, I speak with Stephanie Arne. She’s a conservationist, host, and world traveler. We discuss her many adventures with animals including swimming with crocodiles and sharks, filming with condors and tegus, and how she ended up getting her dream job, being a host for Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom’s web series. We also touch base on what it’s like bringing animals on TV and what life is like being a minimalist living in a tiny house.

In this episode, I interview Marion Holmes from the Cat Conservation Trust based out of South Africa. We discuss Africa's lesser known felines and what the trust is doing to help raise awareness about these small cats. In particular we talk about the African Black-footed Cat, the smallest and rarest of the African cats. Don't let its small size fool you: These cats are tenacious little predators that desperately need our help!
