With CRISPR technology, it is easier than ever for geneticists to alter human DNA, make deadlier pathogens, render mosquitoes infertile, and make other dramatic interventions into organisms and ecosystems. But the science and the ethics of all this is far from straightforward. Biologist Matthew Cobb, author of As Gods: A Moral History of the Genetic Age, guides us through decades of genetic engineering, the strengths and weaknesses of CRISPR technology, and why he doesn't think we should bring back the wooly mammoth.For more on the book: https://www.basicbooks.com/titles/matthew-cobb/as-gods/9781541602854/Support this podcast with a monthly donation on Patreon--help reach 30 supporters by episode 40! https://patreon.com/storytellingpodThis podcast is a member of the iRoar network of pro-animal podcasts: https://iroarpod.com/Subscribe to the free weekly Storytelling Animals newsletter: https://apple6.aweb.page/p/de4ee963-cd8d-4ced-9975-e13965236a7dLearn more about our upcoming book club schedule; next up is An Immense World: How Animals Senses Reveal the Hidden Realms Around Us by Ed Yong on January 17: https://daytonmartindale.com/book-club/Follow this podcast on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DaytonRMartindLike this podcast on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Storytelling-Animals-105986165338395 Hosted on Acast.

With a new Lord of the Rings television series out, I thought it was high time to explore the powerful environmental themes of Middle-Earth. Alongisde Tolkien expert Tom Emanuel, I dig deep into Treebeard, Tom Bombadil, power's corrupting force, and finding courage to resist in the face of overwhelming odds. We also briefly give our takes on the first two episodes of The Rings of Power. Whether you have multiple dogeared copies of The Silmarillion or you only vaguely remember the movies, my hope is this podcast helps give you a fresh perspective on the fantasy epic.Follow the Rev.

Today's guests are philosophers Alice Crary and Lori Gruen, authors of the new book Animal Crisis: A New Critical Theory. In it, they argue that the dominant approaches to animal ethics--whether utilitarian or rights-based-- treat animals too much as abstractions and often fail to engage with the political, economic, and social systems that sustain oppression among humans and other creatures alike. To grow an alternative, they believe, we must pay more attention to our relationships and learn new ways of seeing.Learn more about the book here: https://www.politybooks.com/bookdetail?book_slug=animal-crisis-a-new-critical-theory--9781509549672Read an excerpt: bostonreview.net/articles/the-animal-crisis-is-a-human-crisis/Subscribe to the free weekly Storytelling Animals newsletter: https://apple6.aweb.page/p/de4ee963-cd8d-4ced-9975-e13965236a7dJoin our next book club on Indigenous environmental justice: https://daytonmartindale.com/book-club/Support this podcast with a monthly donation on Patreon: https://patreon.com/storytellingpodFollow this podcast on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DaytonRMartindLike this podcast on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Storytelling-Animals-105986165338395 Hosted on Acast.

Am I conscious? Yes. How about you, or a chimpanzee or a parrot? Almost definitely. What about an oak tree, a bacterium, an electron, or God? In The Book of Minds: How To Understand Ourselves and Other Beings, From Animals to AI to Aliens, science writer Philip Ball explores the minds or mind-like qualities that seem to exist in the world, and how best to make sense of it all when the science of subjective experience remains so uncertain. He joined me for this episode to discuss the book, the evolution of nervous systems, and the difference between animals and a Roomba.

In T.C.Boyle's 2021 novel Talk To Me, one of the main characters is a chimpanzee. It's a fascinating study in how humans respond to other apes, and an ambitious experiment in imagining what it might be like to be one. Using the novel as a starting point, in this solo episode I explore whether learning to love chimpanzees can help break down the human/animal divide, and how Boyle's portrayal of Sam the chimpanzee differs from other novels about animals. I also draw on Amitav Ghosh's The Nutmeg's Curse to argue for the importance of giving voice to nonhuman characters in fiction, and the unique role stories are able to play.Learn more about Talk to Me here: https://www.harpercollins.com/products/talk-to-me-tc-boyleLearn more about The Nutmeg's Curse: https://press.uchicago.edu/ucp/books/book/chicago/N/bo125517349.htmlRead an excerpt of The Nutmeg's Curse on brutes and storytelling animals (how this podcast got its name): https://orionmagazine.org/article/brutes/Read the essay I mentioned on orangutans: http://newsocialist.org.uk/red-apes/Join our next book club on The Ministry for the Future: https://daytonmartindale.com/book-club/Subscribe to the free weekly Storytelling Animals newsletter: https://apple6.aweb.page/p/de4ee963-cd8d-4ced-9975-e13965236a7dSupport this podcast with a monthly donation on Patreon: https://patreon.com/storytellingpodFollow this podcast on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DaytonRMartindLike this podcast on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Storytelling-Animals-105986165338395 Hosted on Acast.

Today marks the 205th birthday of Henry David Thoreau, and to celebrate, I brought on Alda Balthrop-Lewis, author of Thoreau's Religion: Walden Woods, Social Justice, and the Politics of Asceticism. Why (if at all) does Thoreau still matter? How did he engage with the political issues of his time, in particular slavery and the advances of industrial capitalism? Do the ascetic practices he engaged in at Walden Pond have any lessons for the contemporary environmentalist?Learn more about Alda's book here: https://www.cambridge.org/us/academic/subjects/religion/religious-ethics/thoreaus-religion-walden-woods-social-justice-and-politics-asceticism?format=HBRead her analysis of Thoreau's critique of philanthropy here (also a response to the 2015 anti-Thoreau New Yorker article I mistakenly attribute to The Atlantic in the podcast): https://religiondispatches.org/thoreaus-ferocious-critique-of-philanthropy-does-not-make-him-selfish/Read my 2017 article on Thoreau, from which I quote in the intro, here: https://inthesetimes.com/article/the-abolitionist-of-walden-pondAlda's book focuses on Walden, Thoreau's most famous work and the one most relevant to her argument about political asceticism.

Today's topic is "degrowth": What does it mean? Is it actually desirable? How could we achieve it? And do we really need to confront economic growth if we want to fight climate change and build a just, sustainable society?

Today's guest is paleontologist Steve Brusatte, author of the new book The Rise and Reign of the Mammals: A New History, From the Shadow of the Dinosaurs to Us, previously the author of The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs, and also a paleontology consultant on the new movie Jurassic World: Dominion. We talk about what he calls "the story of us": the long history of our mammal ancestors from even before the dinosaurs, the three mass extinctions these mammals have survived (so far), how some of those mammals endured warm periods and ice ages and became humans, and what the future might hold. Steve also reveals his ethical concerns about the (unlikely) prospect of a real-life Jurassic World, and why we're both excited about dinosaur feathers.Learn more about The Rise and Reign of the Mammals here: https://www.harpercollins.com/products/the-rise-and-reign-of-the-mammals-steve-brusatte?variant=40073694543906Sign up for my free weekly newsletter: https://apple6.aweb.page/p/de4ee963-cd8d-4ced-9975-e13965236a7dSupport this podcast on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/storytellingpodFor more information on the Storytelling Animals book club: https://daytonmartindale.com/book-club/Follow me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DaytonRMartindLike this podcast on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Storytelling-Animals-105986165338395 Hosted on Acast.
