    Kentucky: Why Is Such a Beautiful State So Horrible to Its Animals and Children?--Episode 18

    Carl Safina is a pioneer when it comes to understanding the hidden—and instructive—lives of animals. In this interview about his latest book, “Becoming Wild: How Animal Cultures Raise Families, Create Beauty, and Achieve Peace,” he talks about what we can learn about being human from chimpanzees, parrots, pigeons and whales, much of it relevant to today’s headlines. Safina’s other works include "Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel,” "Song for the Blue Ocean,” "Eye of the Albatross,” "The View From Lazy Point: A Natural Year in an Unnatural World" and others. He is the founding president of the Safina Center and is the inaugural holder of the Carl Safina Endowed Chair for Nature and Humanity at Stony Brook University. Safina hosted the PBS series "Saving the Ocean with Carl Safina.” Joining host Joseph Grove are Wayne Pacelle, the founder of Animal Wellness Action, and Marty Irby, its executive director and chief lobbyist in D.C. Music from https://filmmusic.io: "Fearless First" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com); License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)

    The Bloodbath of Killing Contests--Episode 16

    The Bloodbath of Killing Contests--Episode 16

    Wildlife killing contests are orgies of wanton killing and waste, sponsored by gun-manufacturers and even mom-and-pop businesses, that result in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of animals a year. Prizes awarded to participants as young as 10 years old go to the killers who bring the most of certain animals, including the heaviest of them and even the youngest or smallest.Growing attention to this barbarism has resulted in six states implementing bans against a bloodbath legitimate hunters, environmentalists and animal-activists alike find appalling. Guests Camilla Fox, from Project Coyote and producer/director of the documentary “Killing Games: Wildlife in the Crosshairs,” and Lain Kahlstrom, state affairs director for Animal Wellness Action, join hosts Joseph Grove and Marty Irby to talk about the contests and what is being done to outlaw them in the remaining 44 states.To learn more and to sign up for email updates about animal wellness, visit https://animalwellnessaction.org/.Music from https://filmmusic.io: "Fearless First" by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com); License: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
