Animal People

by ABC Radio National

Hosted by Sarah L’Estrange for ABC Radio National, Animal People is a short series that delves into the complex relationships between humans and animals.

Why do we own pets? Why do we send animals into space? How do you speak LOLcat? The podcast explores how dominant animals are in our legends and folk tales, and asks the vexed question: given we are animal people, why are we sending so many to extinction?
