Why "Other Animals?" Like it or not, we share this world with animals like us, just not the human kind. The Other Animals explores our strange and often baffling relationship with these other animals.
To be sure, this is not another 'Wonderful World of Animals' show,' nor is it simply vegan advocacy. Rather, it explores and even celebrates our human inconsistencies, and it grapples with those shades of gray we usually avoid at all costs.
Learning about how we interact with any kind of "Others," human or not, may be the great quest of our times.
With the swirling controversy surrounding the Texas abortion law, we offer a conversation with Sherry Colb and Michael Dorf, authors of "Beating Hearts: Abortion and Animal Rights" (recorded in 2019). You'd think the Animal Rights and Pro-Life movements might be allies.. or not? Plus, some musings on what happens if individuals from an invasive species are cute! And veterinarian Tom Pickard looks at the bizarre historical intersection between human and nonhuman medical training.
