Filmmaker Erin Derham Brings Taxidermy To Life On BUST’s “Poptarts” Podcast

by Emily Rems

Taxidermy—it’s an art form that requires practitioners to be sculptors, biologists, and naturalists all at once. The blood-and-guts aspects of preserving animals for display have traditionally made taxidermy a male-dominated space. But women are making a mark in the field like never before. Helping us discuss the topic on this episode of BUST’s Poptarts podcast is documentary filmmaker Erin Derham, whose new film, Stuffed, takes a deep dive into the state of the art.

Poptarts Episode 68: Taxidermy Talk with Erin Derham!
