Last week, a Spanish Matador was killed by the bull he was tormenting. So, Lori decided to ask her facebook contacts what they thought about this death and bullfighting more generally. A spirited thread resulted and the first segment of the show begins with Lori and Peter discussing the opinions and comments posted. The show continues with a fun discussion about coral reefs, followed by two captive primate stories.
Then author Jonathan Balcombe joins Peter in support of his fine new book, What a Fish Knows. Balcombe calls for greater moral standing for fishes in this work filled with fascinating insights about our marine cousins.
We wrap up the show with a visit from historian and author Kate Kelly, who speaks with Lori about the first animal shelter in the United States. The heroine of the story is Caroline Earle White.
