My name is Kate Shaw. I’m a young adult author, a test proctor/invigilator (in my day job), and a drummer. I’m not a scientist but I love doing research, love reading about animals, nature, and history, and love listening to podcasts. Sometimes I’m flabbergasted that podcasts are free–there are so many amazing ones out there to listen to!

If you have any comments, suggestions for future episodes, or questions, feel free to email me at

Follow the podcast on Twitter at @StrangeBeasties. I’m also on Facebook (occasionally) at
