Why Are Some Animals Pets And Others Are Lunch?
22 min

This episode may not be suitable for our youngest listeners or for particularly sensitive kids.

We're discussing animal ethics with author Hal Herzog. In a follow up to our pets episodes, we look at how we treat animals very differently depending on whether we think of them as pets, food, or work animals. Why do some cultures eat cows and others don't? Why do some cultures not have pets at all? And is it okay to breed animals like dogs that have significant health problems even though we love them? Herzog is the author of Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It's So Hard to Think Straight About Animals.

The story of Marjane Satrapi takes us from war-torn Iran to the streets of Paris. Marjane grew up under the rule of a strict religious government and always felt the need to push the limits that surrounded her. After moving to Paris as a young adult she found a way to tell her story: with simple black and white images and an unending commitment to telling the truth about her childhood, her country and herself.

The Visit 🦃
👋 Hello friends! Producing this episode made me super hungry! We love Thanksgiving, and turkey and pumpkin pie ... yum. The children were excited as they got ready to go to Grandmother and Grandfather Grey’s house for a visit. They took the train and couldn’t wait to spend Thanksgiving Day with their grandparents. The farm was an exciting place and the kids couldn’t wait to go exploring and say hello to all the animals. The kids climbed up onto the shed too and were having a lot of fun until someone knocked the ladder down. They called to Grandfather to come and help them.
