We talk with a law and philosophy professor about rethinking our relationship to animal rights. And where are a lot of ways to study for a big exam, and neuroscience can help us figure out which ones are most effective. We get tips from a psychology expert about the best ways to study.

Featured in this Show

  • What we owe the animals harmed by humans

    Our guest makes ethical and legal arguments about what humans are — and should be — doing about the welfare of animals negatively impacted by human behavior.

  • How psychology can help us study more effectively

    Highlighting, flashcards, and testing ourselves are just a few of the study methods students use in the lead up to a big exam. But what actually helps us learn? A psychology expert talks with us about the answers he found in his book Study Like a Champ: The Psychology-based Guide to Grade A Study Habits.
