Faith Middleton Show: Authors of The Dark End of the Street and Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat

Does living with a pet really make people happier and healthier? What can we learn from biomedical research with mice? Who enjoys a better quality of life—the chicken destined for your dinner plate or the rooster in a Saturday night cockfight? Why is it wrong to eat the family dog? Drawing on more than two decades of research into the emerging field of anthrozoology, the science of human–animal relations, Hal Herzog joins us to explore the fierce moral conundrums we face every day regarding the creatures with whom we share our world. His book is Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat.
