Back in 2017 when our podcast was still very new, we did an episode on Hippos!

This episode featured the lovely and charming baby hippo, Fiona from the Cincinnati Zoo. 

 

As a celebration of her 5th birthday, we're republishing that episode!

Enjoy!

And Happy Birthday, Fiona, from the Varmints! Podcast and all our loyal listeners, the Varminions. We hope your day was super special!
