This week Christopher Berry and Ariel Flint from the Animal Legal Defense Fund join us to discuss the historic ruling granting “interested person” status to former drug lord Pablo Escobar’s hippos. How did they achieve this breakthrough, and what does it mean for the hippos… and for us? Plus, Sentient Media’s Matt Zampa discusses the UK’s “butcher shortage” and the COP26 Summit, and veterinarian Dr. Tom Pickard has a warning for the latest food marketing scheme that could poison your dog.
