Joe Exotic devoted his life to raising and breeding lions, tigers, and other exotic animals at his Oklahoma zoo. He croons ballads, shoots guns, and puts it all on YouTube. But he’s also made a lot of enemies. And the biggest of all is the owner of a big cat sanctuary in Florida named Carole Baskin. The feud between Joe Exotic and Carole gets messy, vicious, and outrageous -- until both of them are pushed far beyond their limits. From Wondery, comes: ‘Joe Exotic: Tiger King.’ Episodes come out Tuesdays.

This series was previously released as the second season of "Over My Dead Body." But on this feed, we'll also be releasing never-before-aired, exclusive interviews and details with some of the most fascinating characters in this saga.

This aired over a year ago and is being rereleased. Way before the Netflix series came out.

Bit late on this, the Netflix series came out last week, and with everyone quarantined it’s probably been double binged!
