in depth discussion about the scientific evidence that humans share basic emotional circuitry with other mammals.

Episode 51 of Books and Ideas is actually a followup of Dr. Jaak Panksepp's recent interview on the Brain Science Podcast. There we talked in depth about the scientific evidence that humans share basic emotional circuitry with other mammals. In this interview we talk about the implications of this discovery, focusing on how it should impact the treatment of laboratory animals.

Richard McMahan commented on Lise Duck's blog post Why would you want to watch that?
"What are vegans..? possibly 1%  of the population? All we generally hear are arguments to our ethic. Its laughable to suggest we are somehow ignoring apposing views. "
