I am working on my first podcast, focusing on animals in history. So many stories, so many ideas, so much delicious research...but I can't quite decide what to call it.

So the focus of the podcast is literally animals in history, in any way shape or form.

I have a few ideas I've been throwing around, but I'm not married to any of them.

Some of my thoughts: History Bestiary (just 'bestiary' is taken), Beasts of History, Beastly History, Critter History...

I love the term bestiary, and would love to include that, but I'm totally open to all ideas.

I'm sure there's something less direct/more clever, but I'm much better at writing narrative than I am at headlines/titles.

I like SaltySalticid's suggestion of "Beasts That Made History." Because it's not only catchy, but also explains exactly what the podcast is about.
