E19: Fuzz: When Nature Breaks the Law- A Chat with Author, Mary Roach

Marika S. Bell 14 March 2022


Background
share close

Mary Roach’s wry humor marries well with the funny but often unfortunate conclusions of human encounters with wildlife. We’ll have a lot of fun discussing some stories from the book as well as other things that fascinate 6x New York Times Best Seller, Mary Roach. 

We’ll be talking about her most recent book, Fuzz: When Nature Breaks the Law. This book has all sorts of fascinating stories and I get to spend 45 minutes talking to her about her experiences writing the book and her personal experiences with wildlife. To be honest, we both geek out a little bit about birds.  

Mary Roach is the author of the New York Times bestsellers STIFF, SPOOK, BONK, GULP, GRUNT, and PACKING FOR MARS. Her new book FUZZ: When Nature Breaks the Law, debuts in September 2021. Mary has written for National Geographic, Wired, and The New York Times Magazine, among others, and her TED talk made the TED 20 Most Watched list. She has been a guest editor for Best American Science and Nature Writing, a finalist for the Royal Society’s Winton Prize, and a winner of the American Engineering Societies’ journalism award, in a category for which, let’s be honest, she was the sole entrant.

Humans interact with animals every day of our lives. Even those without pets interact with animals in various ways: diet, wildlife, the clothes they wear. Even most medicines use animals in testing or in the medicine itself. This is a podcast about Anthrozoology: the study of interaction between humans and non-human animals.
