 Who’s A Good Dog?
According to the American Pet Products Association, we spend almost $70 billion on our dogs each year. It’s clear we love our dogs–but do we truly understand our relationship to our furry friends? Alexandra Horowitz, who runs Barnard College’s Dog Cognition Lab, joins host Krys Boyd to discuss our continued canine obsession, which she writes about in “Our Dogs, Ourselves: The Story of a Singular Bond.”
Asking for Another Friend
Part 2: Last year, we ran a pair of episodes that explored the greatest mysteries in our listeners’ lives - the big ones, little ones, and the ones in between. This year, we’re back on the hunt, tracking down answers to the big little questions swirling around our own heads. Today, we take a look at a strange human emotion, and investigate the mysteries lurking behind the trees, sounds, and furry friends in our lives.  This episode was reported by Tracie Hunte, Pat Walters, Molly Webster, Arianne Wack, Carter Hodge, Sarah Qari and Annie McEwen, and was produced by Matt Kielty, Tracie Hunte, Pat Walters, Molly Webster, Arianne Wack, Sarah Qari, Annie McEwen, and Simon Adler.  Special thanks to Yiyun Huang, lab manager at Yale's Canine Cognition Center. Check out Code Switch's "Dog Show!"
