Medieval Animal Trials
Humans and animals have developed a symbiotic relationship over the past 30,000 years. From the earliest domesticated dogs to sign-language speaking apes, animals have worked with humans throughout history. Yet the relationship is not always a positive one; predators and vermin make life very difficult. In this podcast, Lesley explores one innovative method of dealing with animals that make a nuisance of themselves: by bringing them up on charges in Court.

why would you not offer transcipts of the podcast? not everyone can hear to listen to them.
Hi Emily, we are hoping to start, but transcripts cost money and our show is paid for out of pocket. We are looking into other ways to provide written content, which might just be including scripts as opposed to proper transcripts and to begin with the most recent episodes first. Unfortunately, some episodes never had a script. We appreciate your interest in having transcripts, though, as this supports our decision to begin including them.
