The Spencer Lodge Podcast


Feb 3, 2021

Over 60 million people binge-watched this week's guest in 2020 when she appeared in the sensational Netflix documentary "Tiger King." As the series unfolded, the world was introduced to Carole Baskin - the quirky and cheerful CEO of Big Cat Rescue. Despite her negative portrayal in the show and the hurtful lies that were spread, Carole continues to fight tirelessly for new legislation to prevent the exploitation of exotic cats in the US and worldwide.

I’m absolutely honoured to speak with this phenomenal activist who having once cared for up to 200 wild cats in her Tampa-based not-for-profit sanctuary, shares her recent efforts to pass a bill to end cub handling, the conservation work she's been up to since appearing on Tiger King, and bouncing back after harsh criticism.

To find out how you can support Carole’s mission to end the abuse of big cats in captivity and prevent the extinction of big cats in the wild, head to BigCatRescue.org.

Enjoy the episode, all you cool cats and kittens!
