Bonus Episodes

Sometimes opportunities present themselves to do something a little divergent from the seasons in focus so bonus episodes present an opportunity to put something else in focus, these include book reviews, podcast reviews as well as episodes that focus on particular animals and their stories. 


Thank you to Animals in Philosophy, Politics, Law and Ethics (A.P.P.L.E) for sponsoring this podcast.

Topics include everything from evolution, to love and responsibility. Ultimately, they marvel at how much there is we still don’t know about the creatures we share the world with

In this bonus episode Claudia talks to Alice Crary and Lori Gruen about their recent book “Animal Crisis: A New Critical Theory.” They touch on what inspired the book and spend most of the conversation focused on what “Critical Animal Theory” means. It is a timely and theoretically dense conversation.
