Even though Thandi Mweetwa grew up in one of the most wildlife rich countries on the planet, her first memory of that wildlife was from watching TV and hearing the stories of her mother’s childhood. Those stories had such a profound impact that Thandi worked hard to create her dream job and became an integral part of the Zambian Carnivore Program.

In this episode of MHP Thandi (along with a very loud cricket), chats about Canadian anatomy classes, the reproductive life of lions, the joy of heading up the ZCP’s education program when she’s not out in the field, and her deep love of wild dogs.

Thandiwe Mweetwa is a wildlife biologist, educator and senior ecologist with the Zambian Carnivore Program. She has a BSc in Animal Science from the University of British Columbia and a Masters from the University of Arizona. She was named a 2016 National Geographic Emerging Explorer.

Murder, infidelity, suicide, arson, overdose, religious cults, drug trafficking; this podcast explores the alleged true crime antics and criminal connections of musicians we love like Jerry Lee Lewis, The Rolling Stones, Tay K-47, Tupac Shakur, Mayhem, Amy Winehouse and many more. Why? Because real rock stars are more like feral, narcissistic animals than functioning members of society and that is precisely what makes them so damn entertaining. If you love true crime and you love music then get ready to love this podcast.
