About Strength In Leos Podcast

My name is Evan and Welcome to the Strength In Leos Podcast Patreon Page! I am a hobbyist Leopard Gecko breeder who currently runs Decked Out Geckos and is the host of the Strength In Leos Podcast.

This podcast to be about the beauty of keeping Leopard Geckos and expanding the education of this species in captivity. In this podcast, we also cover other reptiles and amphibians in the hobby. Over time I want to establish the true Strength In Leos in the reptile community. Pretty ironic right? If this sounds interesting then this podcast is for you. A go-getter who is eager to learn as much as they can, while also keeping an open mind.

To properly introduce my self, my name is Evan Wooldridge and I have been keeping reptiles for about 10 years. I know ... Most of you are probably laughing at my lack of experience in the reptile hobby. Yes, 10 years of reptile keeping is not that long, 5 years of keeping Leopard Geckos is even a smaller amount of time, and breeding them for only 3 years is minuscule to some. But please stick with me, as this does not show my lack of knowledge but instead my development and evolution of learning in the reptile hobby. I may not have the most years of experience, but trust me, I know my stuff. I have spent many hours studying John at GeckoBoa’s Website, I have listened to every episode of Gecko Nation Radio, I’ve watched hours of Matt Baronak on Youtube, talked with many of the best breeders in the hobby, and Read Ron Tremper’s Book many, many times. With this said, I am the first to say that I am not an expert by any means. But is anyone in this hobby truly an expert? Over time I can guarantee you that through this journey we will learn and grow together.

In 2016 I founded Decked Out Geckos based in Los Angeles California. I am currently a hobbyist breeder who last year is produced just under 100 Leopard Geckos. As of now some of my main projects include, but are not limited to, Tangerines, High Contrast Trempers and RAPTORS, Bold Tangerines, and a few other special projects.

Over the years I've met and talked to very many breeders in the hobby and have built many relationships. If you are a beginning keeper then this is the perfect place to get answers to the questions you have always wanted to know. If you are a more experienced keeper than hopefully, you can learn something new too, develop a new perspective, and learn new techniques. There is so much to know and learn in this hobby and the power is in our hands.

So sit down, relax, grab a couple of friends, or even just set up a speaker and get to work cleaning those racks. Let's enjoy this journey in the reptile world.
