Your cat is your harshest critic.
Your dog is your best friend.

Or – do you have one of those cats who thinks she’s a dog? What mysteries lurk beneath all of that fur, and what does our fascination with these two domesticated species tell us about the domesticated human? Naturally, we turn to science (and music, and comedy) to find out. A line up of guests that will delight!
