On this week’s episode

  • On this week’s episode of You Have a Cool Job, we talk to the sister owners of Zoo Chateau, Kili and Keaton Crawford. Zoo Chateau is a private zoo in Golden, Colorado, that houses rescue animals and ambassador animals of all shapes and sizes.
  • Zoo Chateau features fun ways to get involved with the animals, most famously, kangaroo yoga. You can rent a house on the property, fully immersing yourself in the experience.
  • The two share how they came up with the idea for Zoo Chateau and how the business transformed into what it is today. They talk about their mission in educating people about having pets responsibly and caring for animals.
  • The Crawfords discuss their signature experience, kangaroo yoga, which has earned them tons of recent media attention. The two laugh about how this isn’t the career they expected and love doing something that is so unique.
  • Kili and Keaton share their hopes that others will continue to find ways to think outside the box when it comes to their careers.

About the show

You Have a Cool Job is a podcast hosted by Taylor Sienkiewicz from Peterson’s. The show highlights professionals who have a unique, interesting, uncommon, or otherwise cool job.

Our goal is to motivate you and show how interesting, fulfilling, and anything-but-average your career can be, and we’ll do this by talking with people who took a path less traveled. We ask these fascinating individuals how they got to where they are in their career based on their education, experience, and influences; why they love their job; and lots more.
