On September 11, the hugely popular podcast I Know Dino celebrated the release of their 250th episode! The podcast is hosted by husband and wife duo Garret Kruger and Sabrina Ricci, who launched the show in early 2015 and was the first ever podcast dedicated to dinosaurs.

Now, five years on, they have over one million downloads worldwide, hosted interviews with over 100 dinosaur experts, and never tire of talking about dinosaurs. Every week, I Know Dino explores the latest in dinosaur related news, features a “dinosaur of the day” segment, and always has a fun fact. The show’s website offers a wealth of educational episode notes such as a dinosaur museum map for science fans or educators.

On the 250th episode, listeners learned about the “Bone Wars,” the infamous rivalry between paleontologists Othniel Charles Marsh and Edward Drinker Cope. The 1870s – 1890s was a tense time of fossil hunting in the American West, and for many years Marsh and Cope went so far as to bribe, steal, and damage bones in an attempt to destroy the other’s reputation.

“When we started five years ago, we had no idea how amazing the paleontology community is. We’re grateful to be a part of it,” states Garret.

“Garret and I believe dinosaurs are a gateway to science,” Sabrina said, “and I Know Dino helps dinosaur enthusiasts of all ages learn about dinosaurs and the science behind them.”

Garret and Sabrina are also launching a new book this October, 50 Dinosaur Tales, which blends fiction with fact and imagines the way 50 newly described dinosaurs from the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous lived in their natural habitats.

You can catch new episodes of the I Know Dino podcast every Wednesday on all major podcast platforms and on the I Know Dino website.
