Welcome! This is the homepage for To Thine Own Self Be Zoo, a zoosexual literary endeavor with works distributed online and possibly occasionally on tape to a random library shelf near you. These stories and poems work to explore the theme of animal empathy and the transcendent love it entails~

New issues are currently being released on the 1st of each month. The podcast feed operates on a freeform schedule, and will have episodes released as they are finished.

For other zoo endeavors, check out Zooier Than Thou for great zoo sketches and discussions, Zooey Magazine to find out why being a dog is kinda zoophilic, and Zoo & Me to hear zoo voices talk about advancing the zoo agenda.
