Episode 74: Origin Stories VI with Stacey and Kim

Hello everyone and welcome to Episode Seventy Four! I want to wish you all a happy and peaceful holiday season.

I have shoutouts to some new patrons of the show!  Ian Kanda, thanks so much for your one-time contribution.  Ian is strictly listening to the show in order so hopefully he’ll hear my shout-out before the fourth of July.  I have some new Patreoners as well!  Kim Brown, thank you so much and your timing is rather excellent!  And a special shout-out to Ruth and Henry, who love to go herping with their dad Andrew Davis.  That makes me happy (and thanks for the nice note Andrew, and for supporting the show). I appreciate y’all.

As always, I want to say thank you to all of the show’s patrons!  I’m grateful for everyone’s contributions and it does keep the show rolling along. And if you’re out there listening and you would like to kick in a few bucks, it’s easy to do, you simply go to the So Much Pingle Patreon page. You can support the show for as little as three bucks a month – less than a fancy cup of coffee! You can also support the show via one-time contributions via PayPal or Venmo (please contact me via email to somuchpingle@gmail.com).

I also want to give Kris Haas a shoutout for both his kind words and some very thoughtful comments, thank you sir.  I do like hearing from folks – your thoughts, opinions, guest suggestions, whatever you got.  You can email me at somuchpingle@gmail.com.  Also please note that I am on Instagram, been there a long while now, but I’m also on Post dot News, and Mastodon now, under the SoMuchPingle handle. 

This week we’ve got our sixth installment of Origin Stories, and this episode features Stacey Schenkel and Kim Brown.  I owe Stacey a bit of an apology because it took me a while to get this one put together – I think we recorded her segment at the end of February.  And then I traveled a bunch and went back to work, and didn’t get a bookend interview recorded until this fall with Kim, and so this project got a little dusty.  But I like how this one turned out, I think Stacey and Kim pair well together.

Thanks for listening everyone! And as always, please keep the comments and suggestions coming, and please take time to rate the show on your podcast platform! The show email is somuchpingle@gmail.com, and there’s also a So Much Pingle group on Facebook, for discussion, comments, feedback, suggestions, herp confessions, tips for herping better, etc.
