My FAVORITE podcast

I highly recommend this podcast. My husband and I love listening to it on long drives together. We love learning about animal issues from a variety of perspectives and disciplines. The host does an excellent job with the interviews and makes it a very engaging listen.

Very informational and inspiring

The only thing that kept me from listening more was the host’s very repetitive “mmm”’s
There doesn’t need to be a “mmm” sound from the host every 3 seconds to help move the show along and it’s very distracting and irritating honestly. Other than that I really enjoy the actual content.

Thank you, Knowing Animals!

What a thought-provoking podcast! Knowing Animals highlights a great diversity of approaches to human-animal studies. I’m grateful to hear such important ideas about ending suffering in the world. Animal studies is on the rise and it seems to me that these issues will be talked about more and more each day. Thanks for being one of the first podcasts to support the spread of this information!
