On this episode, Shannon Gregoire is joined by co-host Tatiana Rogers while they chat with New York Times Best Book author, Carl Safina. They talk about Carl's latest book, Becoming Wild.
Becoming Wild offers a glimpse into cultures among non-human animals through looks at the lives of individuals in different present-day animal societies. By showing how others teach and learn, Safina offers a fresh understanding of what is constantly going on beyond humanity. With reporting from deep in nature, alongside individual creatures in their free-living communities, this book offers a very privileged glimpse behind the curtain of life on Earth, and helps inform the answer to that most urgent of questions: Who are we here with?
