Illinois Public Radio’s Focus program of “interviews on global affairs and daily life” offers a recorded interview with Jane Desmond. From WILL radio’s web site: “Animals have been an essential part of human culture for a very long time. We humans have defined ourselves by stressing the differences we saw between us and them.

Our topic will be the human-animal bond.”
