A discussion about using tarantulas to get over a fear of spiders
Show Notes

Around 23 years ago, I got my first tarantula in part to help me to get over a life-long fear of spiders. Although it took many years (and eventually, MANY more tarantulas), I finally kicked my irrational fear of these animals. Since then, I've spoken to many keepers who were drawn to the hobby for the same reasons. In this episode, I'll discuss my experiences with getting over my fear, as well as some tips for those trying put their arachnophobia behind them.
