    OMG this show. I'm not quite through with the series, but I've never cringed so many times watching something on TV in my life and I've seen the Star Wars Holiday Special.

    Ive only seen the first episode, but there certainly are a lot of “interesting” characters.

    We finished it last night. If I did not know better I would say this is a mockumentary. The characters are so off the wall and they all have something outlandish about them. The big unanswered question is clearly the first husband. I think she did it. Also Joe is not bad as a singer.

    I first heard about this show Tuesday on a podcast. In just the couple days since, I've heard about it on like three other podcasts. Everyone says it is a must watch. I've watched three episodes and it is quite good so far. Big cat people are all nuts it seems.

    I thought Prince Charles was in self isolation after being tested for Covid-19, but there he is on the screen.

    On episode 3 right now. "Here Kitty, Kitty".

    Joe Exotic got 19% of the vote for Oklahoma governor? What the heck is going on in Oklahoma??

    To be clear, it was 19% of the Libertarian vote, something less than 700 total votes.

    It is clear why people think she killed her husband.

    Almost everyone involved in the featured exotic animal zoos are bent and should be in jail, IMO.

    It is so sad about the tiger cubs. While I was watching, it appeared there was just always cubs at these zoos. I immediately started wondering what happens when they get just a couple months old. I wondered if they were euthanizing them, and I'm so sad to read that is in fact what some of them are doing. That one guy was like "we need to breed because they are endangered". Yeah, that doesn't work out so well if you just end up euthanizing them once they are no longer fun to play with.

    I was at a resort in Puerto Vallarta in 2003 that had a tiger zoo. The whole week I was there, they had a tiger cub hanging out right where everyone was walking. You were free to pet it and such. I remember I did not touch the thing. It was already like 5 months old and all I could think was this is a wild animal that could bite my finger off.

    Also, they were talking about pricing to get into one of the zoos. I know they said 655. Was that $655? $6.55 seems way too low, but $655 is super crazy high. Are people paying that much money just to pet a tiger?? I could have pet a tiger cub for free and was like "hell no".

    Half way though I googled to see if it was a real story, it seemed too crazy to be real.

    I also suggest listening to the Joe Exotic Tiger King podcast, I believe it was originally released in 2018 and is.currently being re-released.

    I seriously doubt Joe gave a man he hated $3K to kill Carol Baskin.

    Apparently the jury believed it.

    It seemed like Jeff Lowe was involved at some level with the murder for hire, and the murder guy was Jeff's man.

    Speaking of Jeff, he seems like a real creep. The last episode when he's talking to his wife/girlfriend. He's like, after you give birth, you're going straight to the gym. Then he holds up these pictures of models saying these are the girls he wants as a nanny.

    Agree. That was a very telling clip about Jeff.
