Tom Moran with Luis Roque

In this episode, Luis Roque (creator of the Arácnido Facebook group) and I discuss a myriad of topics  that center around the theme of being a more informed hobbyist.  Luis has not only been a friend of mine for years, but he has been an invaluable resource for me when it comes to taxonomical changes and getting a hold of new spider-related papers. Covered in this podcast are such topics as the importance of scientific names, why name "changes" are a good thing, and why the hobby bears some responsibility for dwindling tarantula populations in the wild. A HUGE thank you to Luis for joining me on this discussion!
