Hey Circuses, Can We Just Not?

Hey Circuses, Can We Just Not?

This week we discuss a total bummer in the form of circus animal ethics. So much of a bummer, Jon made me record a disclaimer. But! It’s incredibly important in our opinions. We learned a lot about some of the seedier things that goes on behind the scenes like bullhooks, arthritis, and canned hunts. Please give it a consideration. But if it’s not your thing we totally get it!

Every week on Stranger Still, we take the questions you’ve never questioned to ask and try to answer them. We want to make you laugh and teach you something interesting at the same time. So join us every Wednesday for another fun filled learn!

If you’ve got a strange question you want answered ask us on Facebook, tweet us @StrangerStill, or drop us an email at podcast@strangerstillshow.com. To find other great podcasts, head on over to FlyingMachine.Network
