About Us
Cinematica Animalia is a biweekly podcast created by two ecologists (Sam Perrin and Adam Hasik) and two veterinarians (David and TJ). The project was started in 2018 with the goal of exploring ecology and physiology through the context of classic movie monsters.


The goal of the podcasts is not to try and point out the flaws in our favorite motion picture creatures, but instead to try and discuss basic ecological principles and biological systems in a fun way. We love science, and we think that this is a fun way to share and learn about the world around us.

Episode/Blog Format

Every two weeks, we release a new episode focused on one movie monster.

For each episode we might also include a written summary of our discussion, some references to back up our claims, or some extra stuff we didn’t get a chance to talk about.
