WHY? Radio presents:

"Love, Hate, or Eat: How Humans Relate to Animals"
with guest, Hal Herzog

Why do some cultures eat dogs and others invite them into their bedrooms? Who enjoyed a better quality of life—the chicken on a dinner plate or the rooster who dies in a Saturday-night cockfight? On the next episode of WHY? we’ll talk with author Hal Herzog about human attitudes towards animals, examine how rational we are when it comes to pets, and ask what all this tell us about ourselves.

Hal Herzog is Professor of Psychology at Western Carolina University and the author of Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why it’s so hard to Think Straight About Animals. He has been investigating the complex psychology of our interactions with other species for more than two decades. He is particularly interested in how people negotiate real-world ethical dilemmas, and he has studied animal activists, cockfighters, animal researchers, and circus animal trainers. An award winning teacher and researcher, he has written more than 100 articles and book chapters.

(This episode was pre-recorded at the UND Writers Conference on March 29.)
