Join The Wild Times crew chillaxing on the couch at Retep’s place as they chat with the one and only Ms. Mallory, Queen of Creepy Crawlies! This woman is a serious badass with plenty of gross creepy crawly tales to share. Between her Fear2Fascination program, 8 Minutes of Ew podcast, and Weird Nature series, Mallory brings a new perspective into play that makes bugs and insects cool, not creepy.
