Why are humans so fascinated with animals? 19

Humans have always been drawn to animals, from the household dog to whales in the ocean and birds high above our heads. New Yorker staff writer Susan Orlean joins host Krys Boyd to discuss her book of essays about the human-animal connection – stories that span the world from New Jersey to Morocco – and the lessons we can learn from the way we interact with these creatures. Her book is called “On Animals.”
