This week, Mariann talks to Marc Bekoff about his latest book, Canine Confidential: Why Dogs Do What They Do. They discuss the unfair stereotypes around dog breeds, making sure your dog gets the most out of activities, and how dogs will save us all. Marc is Professor Emeritus of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a former Guggenheim Fellow. Marc has published more than 1000 scientific and popular essays, three encyclopedias, and 30 books including The Ten Trusts (with Jane Goodall), The Emotional Lives of Animals, Wild Justice: The Moral Lives of Animals, and Ignoring Nature No More: The Case For Compassionate Conservation. He writes regularly for Psychology Today.
Also, Jasmin and Mariann talk about the recent wave of vegan burger options at Shake Shack, White Castle, and more. Plus, Mariann covers this week’s News and Rising Anxieties!
