What We Know About Animals

“Finding Dory” has made more money than any other movie released in 2016. Meanwhile, “Zootopia,” “The Secret Life of Pets” and other films with animal protagonists have also connected with moviegoers. We talk about what we actually know about how animals think and feel – and about the relationship between animals and humans – with some of our favorite animal experts. We’ll be joined by Emory University professor Frans de Waal, author of “Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are?,” primate expert Jane Goodall and bioethicist Jessica Pierce, author of “Run, Spot, Run: The Ethics of Keeping Pets.”
