About When We Talk About Animals
When We Talk About Animals is a podcast devoted to exploring the big questions animals raise about what it means to be human. The series is supported by the Law, Ethics & Animals Program at Yale Law School and the Yale Human Nature Lab.
Each episode features an in-depth interview with a guest expert whose work has furthered human understanding of what animals think and feel and/or challenges how our society commonly thinks about and treats other creatures. The podcast hosts ethologists, neurobiologists, sociologists, philosophers, legal scholars, historians, and other leading thinkers to speak on one of the most interdisciplinary and morally pressing topics of our time.
When We Talk About Animals is co-hosted by Viveca Morris and Jennifer Skene. The first 28 episodes of the podcast were co-hosted by Morris and Lindsay Stern, who co-founded the podcast in fall 2018. The show is recorded, edited and engineered by Ryan McEvoy and the Yale Broadcast Studio.
