    "people are not educated enough about the danger of taking in a wild animal"! There are approximately 10,000 tigers kept in US homes and 5000 living in their natural habitat. We no longer import human cargo to be exploited, so then let's try the animal kingdom?

    I'm positive in 50 or 100 years people will still be eating tasty animals. Every one in the story was exploiting the animals. Not a single "good guy".

    I felt like it was more shock value than classism. I would say "I don't think this could get any crazier" and low and behold it does…

    I enjoy your videos but I have noticed you visits both sides …be it guilt or innocence. Yes he looks guilty but then again I dont have the full data to be sure.
    These kind of comments leaves enough room to constantly play back and for. At least for myself snd i'm not capable of deciphering on my own with such an important topic. Speaking In general

    I really appreciate your insight on the character of the tiger king and the commentary of the viewing audience seems pretty sound.I also enjoy the way you attempt to understand the complexity of characters beyond a surface level ( pickle rick and tiger king) I was wondering if you would be willing to take a look into the character of Shane from the walking dead – It always seemed to me like there was more to him than the one shot villain he was painted as by a lot of the viewers at the time and I would be interested in getting your thoughts on the character

    Well said! I haven't seen the documentary but have been delving into videos discussing it to try to understand why ppl r so fascinated and I believe u have struck on the central idea. Classism porn, ppl seem to need someone to look down on, I speak from personal experience, and it happens a hell of a lot more than ppl want to admit……

    I run a livestock sanctuary and I'm definitely not like Joe lol I mean I'm loud and colorful but we don't take donations and we aren't open to the public. My animals are here because they either have special needs or they're elderly.

    Almost all those animal photo op ranches and private sellers and zoos are deeply unethical and cause tons of safety issues and animal abuses. It's frustrating to me that this show normalizes those things.

    Does him owning a dangerous animal such as Tigers and being close to an animal like inflate his form of narcissism? Does it make him feel untouchable and special in a way since most people wouldn't dare or cant own an exotic animal like that?

    Was really into your content but like so many others you can't help but bring in negative comments against Donald Trump. Why?

    everyone says carol's a hypocrite but literally once she realized breeding big cats was wrong she got out. the documentary was also edited to make her look as if she were lying; the sanctuary is actually several thousand acres, the cat they showed in the cage was recovering from surgery and couldn't be with the others, and her sanctuary is board-certified. the only reason so many viewers think she killed her husband is bc they heavily implied it. the directors didn't bother to show any of this and it makes me so mad lol

    I have been listening to Psych In Seattle podcast for a long time now and this is the first time watching y’all on YouTube..I need to say two things that are neither good or bad. 1) You and Berto look NOTHING like what I’ve been imagining, gauging from the podcast pic of the top of your heads. 2) Your podcast voice and your natural voice are so different! I just don’t know how to feel about all this haha I feel lied to! I’m so confused, nothing makes sense anymore! 🥺🤦🏻‍♀️😫🤯🤯🤯😱

    I'm convinced joe exotic was a meth dealer and the tiger taming as a money laundering scheme.

    Yeah, we're all taught as children that SOME exploitation is okay….it's called "capitalism".

    How is it hard to know it was suicide when Travis shot himself in front of another person?
