The Bestiary Team is creating Bestiary: The podcast about humans and other animals

$4
per month
Once per month, we release a new podcast episode at BestiaryPod.org. Each season focuses on a different theme, idea, set of characters, or series of events that help us try to answer the following question: What do our interactions with other animals say about us as a species?

The show approaches that and other questions from a largely ethical standpoint. Season 1, for instance, explores the language studies that have been done on great apes since the 1950s. We'll talk about the history of those studies, connecting the dots to plot out an overarching story, and along the way, we'll ask questions about what it means to "have language" and how our ideas about language have affected our interactions with other animals.

Okay, so at this point, you should get some pretty substantially sweet stuff, right? We're working on it and will get back to you soon.

Like, seriously, we owe you, and we'll figure something out down the road.
Goals
$4 of $500 per month
We want to take Bestiary out of our basement and into the field, and we also want to improve the quality of our basement recordings. To do those things, we'll need a fancy digital recorder, some new microphones, and soundproofing materials.
