Bob Tarte's Weekly Podcast

Dream or nightmare? You decide. Because now you can hear Enslaved by Ducks and Fowl Weather author Bob Tarte every week in his 30-minute podcast about exotic pets for

Each week on What Were You Thinking?, Bob attempts another podcast from his dining room against the chatter of parakeets, hoots from Howard the dove, and occasional whistles and words from his African grey parrots Dusty and Bella.

Joining Bob on every show is his wife Linda, and she is a natural in front of the microphone, providing much of the humor and enthusiasm plus the kind of insightful comments that would never occur to Bob.

So if you've got interesting stories about your parrot, rabbit, turtle, spider, chinchilla, lizard, snake, or squid... or if you're involved in pet or wildlife rescue, you might be the next guest on What Were You Thinking?
