TWT #93 – Coyote Peterson Talks Stings, Favorite TV Moments & Career Advice

March 28, 2022

Forrest Galante and the Wild Times broducer, Papa P, are joined by Coyote Peterson for a real wildlife geek-out. Whilst Coyote is sometimes known as the King of Stings, he brings so much more wildlife experience to the show and has a wealth of knowledge on the industry. The Wild Times crew talk to Coyote about how he got into the wildlife field, some of his favourite experiences with his Youtube show Brave Wilderness and TV show Brave The Wild. Including BUT not limited to some crazy stings and bites, some of Forrest’s best memories in Extinct or Alive, the low-down on working with wildlife, this episode is not one you want to miss.

We love you, brosteners!
