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.
Author and New York Times columnist Emily Anthes returns for a fascinating look into animal "translation" -- can eavesdropping with machine learning technology help us to communicate with the animals? Plus visionary Kathy Stevens shares her story in creating the one-of-its-kind Catskill Animal Sanctuary.
