Not these two

I didn’t watch the Netflix documentary and I don’t want to. The reality is that there’s always going to be bias towards both sides. There’s evidence that Joe did things that were illegal and he got caught. Whether Carole is guilty or not is unknown. It has suspicious circumstances surrounding it but with out cold hard evidence she can’t be charged. Look it comes down to one thing, Neither of them are saints. They both have done things wrong. Why does it matter so much to people?? Shouldn’t our focus as a community who love Big Cats and who want to see them treated like the regal cats they are be on the welfare and happiness of these animals? If they are in a Big Cat center, then they should have their rights taken away if they mistreated the animals. Also why would you wanna take baby tigers out in public for money and “photo ops” only to dispose of them when they get to a certain age? They should of been handed over to zoos. I’d rather see tigers and big cats in zoos or facilities like zoos than with two idiots who squabbled over everything else and acted like children. Tiger King seems a little facetious doesn’t it?

Good quality journalism - interesting and well made

I found the Longreads article on the topic, which references these podcasts. I am very happy to have listened. I liked Rachel’s style and the facts that this podcast brought the focus back to where it should have been all along - the plight of big cats, exploited cradle to grave and discarded when they are no longer profitable. I don’t think Tiger King should be billed as a documentary. It is anything but.We need more quality, objective journalism such as that here. Well done.

Interesting and informative

I was impressed with both the host and information she covered. I’m kinda surprised to see such negative reviews. She can come off a little monotone at times, but in no way boring. You can tell that a lot of work was put into the research and while it could be perceived as bias at times she clearly states her stance and goals with her research. Well done. I would listen to more.

Just as one side as Tiger King

This podcast is as one sided as the Netflix documentary, just in the complete opposite side. I don’t trust anything this podcast speaks about.

Um, so like, this is a lazy podcast, or whatever.

Um, so like the narrator sounds like she doesn’t want to be doing this podcast or something. The journalism is pretty lazy and one-sided and seems to gloss over Carole Baskin’s faults and makes her out to be the Mother Theresa of big cats. Im not on Joe Exotic’s side at all, I’m glad he is in jail, but you can tell where the bias is here.

Great podcast!

I get that big cats can be triggering for some people (the whole Carol Baskin thing), but I think this is a fantastic podcast. I listen to a large amount of podcasts and this is one of my favorites! Highly recommend it.

A great listen!

Very good listen highlighting the ease in which a regular civilian can acquire a big cat but also discussing animal rescue efforts to stop it. I wish they invested more time into the details of what individuals can do to help conservation and rescue efforts for big cats. But all in all this is a very good listen and gets the point across that the possession of big cats shouldn’t not be a thing.

Wish there were more episodes.

I am “proud” to live in WI where I can possess pretty much any animal I want. It doesn’t make for great binge watching, but not enough time was spent explaining how the animals being bred by these people have zero conservation value. This podcast did a much better job differentiating between a sanctuary and these other places.

Was great but then takes a turn

The first two episodes were informational and a nice look in to the big cat world. But the last two are not done as well and feels very one sided. An coral and joe store would have been better in there own separate podcast or season.

Bias

How can you say Big Cat rescue is the answer? It is just bad as a road side zoo.

Is this the Carol Baskin show?

I had to stop listening. Obviously this is so slanted one way about how wonderful Carol is. I won’t recommend this podcast to anyone.

I’m glad I listened

The Netflix docuseries Tiger King was salacious, and I had a lot of unanswered questions. This podcast really put Tiger King into perspective. I now have a much better understanding of the big cat problem, and a much more nuanced understanding of Carol’s work to protecting big cats. Thank you!

Constructive Criticism for Host

Hey I’m really enjoying this podcast but can Rachel please work on being slightly more articulate. She keeps saying “or something” which makes it sound like she doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Also, you talked about Carole learning how wrong the info breeders were providing her was so she “did a 360” which is a circle and that would mean she didn’t change her actions. A 180 would mean she was doing the opposite. This is not meant to be a jabbing comment, want the podcast and it’s presentation to improve. Thanks!

Nothing new

I read the article in GQ about Zanesville, OH story in 2012. I’d recommend finding it online for a much more informative read. I remember distinctly that some boys found a dead big cat and put it in their truck, so law enforcement were afraid one was still on the loose. They completely skipped that part. Made it seem they were all found fairly easily. It feels short and not enough good information. Some Podcasts should be in depth. This one misses the mark. Skip it.

Informative

After watching the Tiger King documentary I wanted more information and facts about big cats and captivity. This podcast did that for me. But it was biased towards Big Cat Rescue and Carole Baskin.
