…where two trained philosophers discuss contemporary culture, society, and politics. Join us as we get curious and think hard about what’s going on in our dynamic wide world.

We welcome special guest Paul Waldau, author of Animal Rights and recently retired Professor in the Animal Behavior, Ecology and Conservation Department and Director of the graduate program in Anthrozoology at Canisius College, to talk about the relationships we humans have with non-human animals. How has viewing humans as special or distinct from other animals damaged our world? Should we view animals as having some of the same rights that we humans have, and if so, why?
