Get to know animals better! Whether you’re interested in dogs, rabbits, ferrets, seals, elephants, bats, rats, otters, or sloths, we have a show that delves into their lives. We cover songbirds, turkeys, and recovering cockfighters. We even have shows dedicated to the much-maligned shark and scorpion. And don’t miss the show about animal fathers.
For a primer on the countless ways humans use animals, try these interviews about the pig industry, cattle farms, poultry industry, dairy, eggs, and foie gras. Hear about the use of animals in classrooms, vet school, and university research. Go far afield to learn about bear bile farming and the exotic animal trade, and closer to home to investigate puppy mills, rodeos, dog sled racing, and captive animal parks.
Animals Rights Theory
Many of the finest animal rights scholars have treated us to an hour-long look into their work and thought. Gary Francione’s accessible books have introduced many to animal rights. Challenge your thinking with academic luminaries like Donna Haraway, Akira Lippit, Greta Gaard, John Sanbonmatsu, Philip Armstrong, and Cary Wolfe; ethicists Angus Taylor and Bernard Rollin; historian Erica Fudge; political philosopher Will Kymlicka. Hear from Richard Ryder, who invented the word “speciesism”, and Joan Dunayer, who wrote a book on it! We also cover how animal rights thought connects with Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, and atheism.
