Love your work. Keep at it. And enjoy Australia.
Love the humor, story telling style, sarcasm, and ”to the point” format of how you introduce and explain various animals. Many other podcasts are either rambling too much about non-relevant things or speaking in the most monotonous way. Thanks for making this fun!

I've been subscribed to Species for a long time and always knew I'd love it but I got so caught up in true crime podcasts, I just couldn't find the time to listen. I'm now trying to play catch up because it's so good! Still in 2018 but I'm determined to be caught up fast! Used my new knowledge of rock pythons the other day at a friend's brunch...I sounded so smart! Thanks Mackin!

This donation is from my daughter Penelope (8 years old) who chose to donate part of her allowance to your podcast. She loves your show very much and requests us to play it every time we are in the car together. We love to discuss the animals as a family after every episode, also frequently following your advice to bring up surprising or strange facts at cocktail parties. From Penny: “I like Species because it’s just full of learning. It teaches me stuff about animals I know about, but with other facts and animals I have never even heard of.” Thank you for your dedication to this show, even as you continue on your own journey through school and career etc, it has brought immense joy to our family.

Simply the best podcast for my children and I to listen to in the evening. Kicks off discussions on animals. We have your book too! Favorite episode is Guinea Pigs. Appreciate you!

Hi Macken. I’m a science educator and I very much appreciate your work. From your sense of humour to your in-depth exploration of evolution and cultural evolution on top of all the cool animal life style facts. Your intros are very entertaining connecting topics and making connections that adds to your uniqueness as an educator. Keep up the good work. Good luck in Australia. I can relate to your experience teaching 7th graders and middle schoolers in general.

I love your podcast! It's actually the first ever podcast I listened to and I can't stop. I always listen to it at work and it makes the day go by easier. I pledged to donate a dollar for every episode I listen to so you're likely going to bankrupt me 😆😅
Chris Evans | $1.35/W
Really appreciate the show. Infinitely more than a mere synthesis of facts. You really say something profound about biology or life in general in each episode. I know you’ve had your fill of bird suggestions and by the sounds of it are looking for amphibians to profile but can I be cheeky and request an amphibious bird.. the white-throated dipper? Please keep up the great work and good luck in Oz. Chris

My son Patrick turned 11 this week and he asked for donations to your podcast instead of gifts from friends and family. He has listened to every episode and looks forward to Species Sundays all week. Thank you for the thoughtful content you create and put out into the world. It is deeply appreciated by many.

I listen to your podcast every day! Keep up the great work!
Thank you for keeping up with this podcast. I know a 20 minute episode has hours of research and other hard work behind it. I love animals, and listening to and learning from this podcast is honestly makes my day. Hopefully my small donation can be helpful as you continue working on this show, will continue to support you as a listener and hopefully again as a donor soon!

Great podcast, good job and keep going!! :)
Species is ADDICTING. My husband and I always joke that we "prefer animals over people," and this podcast allows us to indulge in that sentiment. We had been listening to the Sharkpedia podcast, but have recently been on the hunt for a podcast that explores all types of animals. I found this gem, starting with the Immortal Jellyfish episode. I was hooked, and my husband quickly followed. If you love animals, this podcast is for you. If you like hardcore facts, this podcast is for you. If you like wit, this podcast is for you. If you like to consider the "human - animal - existential - relationship," this podcast is also for you. Thanks for speaking to our inner animals. Awesome. It's fire. Keep it up.

Thanks so much Macken! Species podcast has been instrumental in revitalizing my obsession for the natural world and has been a part of me getting my first full time job in the sector. Good luck in your exams!
Guy Lenk | $12.73/M
You are awesome! My son Nolan wants to be a zoologist and loves listening to all of the animal facts and stories. Please keep up the great work!
My ten year old son, Alexander, loves your podcast. Favorite episode so far is naked mole rats.
Sammy | $25
Hey Macken! This is Sammy. Thanks so much for making this podcast. Ever since I discovered it a few months ago, I listen to an episode every single night. You’re the best! And you seem to have an episode for every single animal! I love the way you discuss the most interesting aspects of each animal you discuss, and how each episode is so different, unique, and special. You freaking rock!!!
