49: ANIMAL FRENZY: Travis the chimp & the film Nope, plus the death of Grizzly Man’s Timothy Treadwell

This week on Eavesdroppin’ comedy podcast… when animals attack!!

When host Geordie watched the Jordan Peele film Nope, she wondered: was the hard-to-watch on-screen chimp plotline based on a real-life incident? With a little digging, Geordie uncovered the origin story of that disturbing scene… In February 2009, American chimp owner Sandra Herold had her best friend Charla Nash round for a visit. Listen now to find out what Sandra’s chimp Travis did to Charla when she picked up his favourite Tickle-Me-Elmo toy…

Michelle then looks at the back story of the protagonist in Werner Herzog’s documentary Grizzly Man… On October 6 2003, Alaskan pilot Willy Fulton was circling Kaflia Lake in Alaska to pick up nature lovers Tim Treadwell and Amie Huguenard who had been on a bear-observing trip in Katmai national park. Instead of finding Tim and Amie, Willy found their remains, ripped to pieces after a bear attack. Listen now to find out what happened… So pop on your headphones, grab a brown lemonade and join Geordie & Michelle for this week’s episode, plus chit chat about Shane McGowan, Fairytale of New York, dogs eating mince pies and more, only on Eavesdroppin’ podcast. And remember, wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
