A podcast devoted to the proper care and upkeep of tarantulas and other inverts. After keeping a G. porteri for over 16 years, I decided that I wanted to add another tarantula to my collection. Several years later, I now keep over 100 specimens and 90+ different species. It’s safe to say that I am now completely addicted to the hobby.I’m NOT an expert, and I’m currently still learning about keeping these fascinating creatures. In fact, there are so many species, that I suspect that I’ll stil ...
 
This podcast is organized on behalf of SPIDERS, the Seoul Platform for Initiating Discourses on Equitable and Resilient Society, and funded by the Seoul Institute. The talks complement a series of original papers published on the SPIDERS platform, dedicated to outlining the building blocks of post-capitalist political economies and societies, not oriented around growth and profit, but rather autonomy, interdependence, good lives and a flourishing web of life in times of profound planetary ch ...
 
Whether you find spiders fearful or fascinating, they are to be admired for their web-spinning and prey-catching techniques, and the remarkable methods they use to move from one place to another. In this album, researchers in Denmark and the United States use an 8-legged robot and a virtual spider, high-speed photography, a hot air balloon and a rowing boat to explore the biophysics of spiders. In the audio track, Dr David Robinson of The Open University explains how advances in technology a ...

After having a discussion with a fellow keeper about arachnophobia, I got to thinking about how spiders are presented in media and how much some of those depictions strengthened my own fear of these animals. In this episode, I talk a bit about spiders in media.על ידי Tom Moran
 
What if we were all able to come up with some basic rules that we wanted all tarantula hobbyists to live by? What would our "10 Commandments" of keeping be? In this episode, I offer up my list of 10 rules that I think all serious tarantula hobbyists should abide by.על ידי Tom Moran
 
First, we talk about a few comments I got after last week's episode about tarantula stress. Then, we revisit the topic of tarantula temperament and why these eight-legged wonders are seemingly so inconsitent from specimen to specimen when it comes to their overall mood.על ידי Tom Moran
 
First, Billie and I ventured out to the Show Me Reptiles Expo in West Warwick Rhode Island this weekend, and I talk a bit about the experience. Then, my mention of semi-arboreal setups (and their controversial nature) drew an excellent email about the topic as it pertains to the C. cyaneopubescens. In this episode, I will discuss the idea of settin…
 
As the first Tarantula Exam was quite a hit, I decided that it would be fun to return to the classroom to try a part two. This time around, the questions are a little more difficult and feature 15 short scenarios that ask listeners to determine what the keeper is doing wrong. Again, this is all just for fun and an entertaining way to discuss some c…
 
Four years ago, I did an early podcast on the state of the hobby in the United States. In this episode, we'll revisit the topic. In many ways, it's a great time to be a tarantula hobbyist, with more species and dealers around than ever. However, with increased exposure bringing negative attention to our little pasttime, could we be in for a much da…
 
First, we revisit last week's episode. Then, I give an update on my Poecilotheria formosa, who was recovering from a bad molt. Finally, I just rehoused my sub-adult Xenesthis sp. blue and thought that it would be a good time to update my care notes on that species.על ידי Tom Moran
 
Well, the US Government is at it again. A new bill titled America Competes Act of 2022 has amendments added that could decimate the exotic animals hobbies. In this episode, we discuss what this means and what can be done. PLEASE CHECK OUT USARK and be sure to write your local senators!על ידי Tom Moran
 
To kick this episode off, I share an amazing story about an M. balfouri communal that a subscriber shared with me. Then, there are apparently folks out there keeping all of their slings dry? We talk a bit about why that is a pretty dangerous practice.על ידי Tom Moran
 
Now that I've been keeping more true spiders and trap doors, I've had some folks asking me about the differences between these types eight-legged predators. In this episode, I discuss some of my early findings and thoughts.על ידי Tom Moran
 
First, I vent for about 15 minutes about some issues with my theme music. At about the 16 minute mark, we start the main topic...namely, are lists that rank tarantulas as "best beginner" or "best starter old worlds" really useful?על ידי Tom Moran
 
I've had several requests for updated Pamphobeteus care lately, so I decided to focus a podcast on it. As I was recording it, I got the sneaking suspicion that I had talked about this topic before, but I was on a roll, so I kept going. Well, I DID cover it this year as it turns out...oh well! Here are my updated notes on Pampho care (next week, I'l…
 
Anyone who has listened to me for any length of time knows how much I HATE when folks use their social media platforms to feed into the idea that spiders are dangerous and aggressive creatures. The way I see it, they are already feared and even loathed by so many that we shouldn't be helping to fuel that hatred. Now that I've moved into keeping som…
 
To kick it off, I talk a bit about my recent huntsman spider buying spree. Then, we tackle a topic I get asked about all of the time; what do you do if you HAVE to heat your spiders? In this episode, we'll talk about what "too cold" is and discuss the best ways to provide extra heat should it be warranted.…
 
Well, I'm back to school and prepping for my new classes, which has me in full teacher mode. While taking a break, I thought that it would be fun to design an assessment for all the tarantula hobbyists listening. In this episode, I present The Tarantula Care 101 Exam, a test with 33 tarantula care specific questions. Can you get an A?…
 
As luck would have it, the day after posting my podcast featuring some communal updates, I caught an amazing interaction in my M. balfouri communal enclosure. In this podcast, we discuss the significance of this behavior. Also, I talk about the care for O. violaceopes.על ידי Tom Moran
 
Recently, I did an unboxing video for an order from Swift's Inverts, and the two spiders I bought gave Billie and I quite the hard time during the rehousing. In this podcast, I talk about my awesome experience buying from Swift's and then critique what went wrong during the rehouse.על ידי Tom Moran
 
To kick this one off, I talk a bit about the passing of my adult H. chilensis. Then, it's off to the main topic in which we discuss some of the measurements of my "giant" tarantula species and how they compare to supposed max size numbers.על ידי Tom Moran
 
Well, Phormictopus species seem to be the new "it" tarantulas, which should be awesome. However, in this episode, I discuss my mixed feelings about their newfound popularity. Also, in this episode I share the story of my P. formosa's terrible molt.על ידי Tom Moran
 
With the collection tour video now live, the only real criticism that I've received on it is that people missed my commentary. Unfortunately, I didn't feel like I could do any of the spiders justice in the short time I had for each clip, so I went with soothing ambient music instead. However, I thought that it would be fun to supply my "director's …
