Squirrels - Varmints! - Episode 19


In this week’s Varmints podcast we’ll talk about squirrels! Squirrels were suggested by Varmints listener, Laura, so we thank her! Squirrels are cute, clever critters with attitude and definite opinions on things, they are fun to watch and great fun to learn about. We had a great time recording this episode and we hope you will enjoy it!

Here’s some stuff we referenced on the show:

In the news: PETA wants fictional characters in the fictional Warhammer universe to stop wearing fictional furs. No word on whether or not the fictional murder and mayhem are a problem. Check it out!


This season’s fashion statement: YAAAAARGH!

PETA wants Warhammer characters to stop wearing furs now

Tiny, fuzzy, and not a tail flap in sight. Uh, we have to say squee.
