Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (02-13-2022) #766: Featuring Patrick Aryee, Stacy LeBaron, and Catherine Raven. World traveling science observer Patrick Aryee talks about his new series EVOLVE on CuriosityStream, a series about biomimicry and how we can figure out solutions to human planetary problems by studying Mother Nature’s solutions to challenges; Stacy LeBaron talks about the upcoming United Spay Alliance online conference to help everyone who is doing the hard work of trap-neuter-return or making spay/neuter available to underserved communities; Tracie turns to Dr. Catherine Raven (the brilliant memorist of Fox and I) to get her opinion about the dangerous sloppiness of using the inappropriate but eye-catching word “psychopath” to describe non-humans, as in the recent British “research study” that used to discuss cats.
