The Picktainment crew reviews Horrible Bosses, Zookeeper, and Project Nim.
Here at Reptile Radio we feel really connected with the listeners of our show. Regular fans of our program know that we've been plugging the Bush League Breeders Club annual Spring Scavenger Hunt for years now. As happenstance would have it, this year's Hunt winner is also a huge fan of "The Double R". This is the first year that the BLBC Contest Committee offered an appearance on the show as the crowned jewel of the grand prize package, so having this year's Hunt winner P.J. Kohn on the show is really sweet for everyone involved. CK hosts this episode with the herpin' zookeeper from the great state of Michigan, P.J. Kohn. We'll be talking more than just snakes on this one folks, so tune in and enjoy!
For decades, filmmakers have toyed with the notion, and with some success, of having man and animal share the same "limelight". Movies like "Lassie" and "Ladd a Dog" come to mind, from back in the 60's. Well, we'd like to take this friendship, between man and animal, into the new millennium, with some wildly creative, and fun films including man, animals, and animation! Tune in and join the conversation!
Tonight we will be interviewing Brad Walker of Crazy Carpets!

Poet, essayist, and naturalist, Diane Ackerman is the author of two dozen highly acclaimed works of non-fiction and poetry, including A Natural History of Senses and The Zookeeper's Wife. In this episode, Diane and I talk about her newest work, a memoir titled, One Hundred Names for Love.
When Ackerman's husband of 35 years suffered a massive stroke, he lost his command of language. In the beginning, he could only utter one syllable, "mem".
And for Paul West, a writer, poet and professor, that was a devastating blow. Over the next six years, his wife refused to give up hope. She saturated him with language and never left his side. Diane has written about the experience in this new book. In it she shares the touching story of their marriage and explores the role of becoming a caregiver.
Diane's story will touch your heart!
