Call in to speak with the host
Asia welcomes internationally acclaimed Animal Behaviorist Con Slobodchikoff. They will discuss the secret language of animals in his new book "Chasing Doctor Dolittle"
He makes the case for a common link between humans and animals. According to Dr. Slobodchikoff, many animals use language to talk to one another, and his book is filled with examples and explanations of their skills. He shows how animals are similar to humans in using language to develop novel ways to persuade, escape, manipulate, and even deceive. Dr. Slobodchikoff will also share his personal adventures with animals from around the world. His storytelling gives insights into both human and animal behavior and draws parallels between them. From lizards using grammar, to whales and mice singing songs, to squid chatting up potential mates, to prairie dogs calling out words for different predators, Dr. Slobodchikoff builds a new view of animals. He cites evidence from many species that shows that individual animals possess consciousness, self-awareness and awareness of others.
