551: Van Gogh Immersion, Happy Elephant, & Bears on Trial


Show Notes

Today we find out why Sarah is in a zen period (maybe Susie’s giggle phase brings Sarah peace?). We discuss an art installation Sarah went to, and why she loved it, but worries about the implications. We find out about an elephant in the Bronx zoo who is lonely because her best friend got murdered (!), and the only answer is for her to become…a person? We debate the ethics of zoos and we fantasize about animals going to court. Plus, we talk to Suzanne O’Sullivan about her book The Sleeping Beauties and the reasons why “psychosomatic” illnesses are more complicated than they appear.
