PETcasters is a weekly podcast show. Each episode follows a variable format but would generally map to the following segments:

  • Headlines – a roundup of the latest and greatest pet-relevant news
  • Conversations – an engaging conversation with one or multiple expert guests
  • Breed Spotlight – a focus on a specific breed of cat, dog, horse, or else
  • Hot Debate – a short conversation on a hot topic

This changes often as we really listen to our audience and strive to build the best show for them.


Meet Lazhar Ichir, a devoted animal enthusiast who has combined his love for pets with his entrepreneurial spirit to create, in 2015, BREEDING BUSINESS. This online pet magazine educates pet parents through engaging and informative articles. It is read by millions of pet owners worldwide every year and was mentioned by publications such as The Smithsonian Magazine, The American Kennel Club, and The Washington Post.

In 2023, Lazhar could not find the right pet podcast to follow so as always, he scratched his own itch and started The PETcasters Podcast. In each episode, he poses as a curious interviewer to try and allow expert guests to dive deep into their areas of expertise, shedding light on complex topics and sharing valuable insights with listeners in an engaging and accessible manner.
