• MYTHMAKERS (@DavidHains )
• NATURE'S DEATH PANELS (@dunagan23)
• PALINTOLOGY (@iheartmuseums )
• WHALIN' WITH PALIN (@hmobius)
• THE BEWILDERNESS (@james_atomic)
• TRAILIN' PALIN (@invisiblea)
• WIFE ON EARTH (@fcw)
• NORTHERN OVEREXPOSURE (@JIMWICh)
• THE BEVERLY SNOWBILLIES (@drhypercube)
• Untitled nature show narrated by David Attenborough, in which the entire family is eaten alive by pack of starving cheetahs. (@dr_ultimately)
