Marc then talks to the renowned palaeontologist, author and illustrator Darren Naish about his recent adventures in science and publishing. Is the TetZoo podcast cancelled FOREVER?

October 29, 2021

Marc, Niels and Natee discuss perhaps the single most influential book of dinosaur art in the entire world: Predatory Dinosaurs of the World, by one Gregory S. Paul (tm). Marc interviews Friend Of The Blog Steve White about his upcoming compendium of Mesozoic Art, his new, gruesome alphabet book, and of course his legendary work for Dinosaurs! Magazine and the wilderness years that followed. In the news, Niels and Natee desperately try to give the ornithischians some love while the prima donna theropods soak up all the attention. How boring is Greg Paul? Does the Middle Jurassic even exist? Is working with palaeoartists like herding cats? Will Marc finish his licorice coin on time? All these questions and more will be answered.

August 2021. In this long-awaited episode, we cross a big one from our wishlist as Natee, Niels and Marc tackle Verdwenen Werelden, the monumentally ambitious and even more monumentally strange masterpiece of the indomitable Maria Hubrecht. Natee gets a chance to put their art historian hat on once more. The journey off the beaten path continues as Niels interviews Scottish filmmaker and animator David Armsby about his upcoming Dinosauria series, an anthology of short animated films about dinosaurs.

Some uf us are big fans, while others need some convincing... Jed Taylor discusses the trials and tribulations of the beginning palaeoartist whose work blew up out of nowhere, and guides us through his famous Dromaeosaur Sanctuary. Who is Ray Jurassic and where did he get those two Deinonychus?

Episode 7: Cam and McLoughlin

June 30, 2021

Of course, we need to talk about that Triceratops… but there is so much more to this book! Natee interviews palaeoartist Cameron Clow, and things quickly devolve into a horse girl geekout. Shoutouts abound!
