The producer of the ABC National Radio program The Philosopher's Zone informs me that the episode "The Emotional Lives of Animals" - featuring Stephanie Theodorou and me (both of Immaculata University) - has been short-listed for a prize among ten others in Voiceless Media Prizes.
The Voiceless Media Prize recognizes the most accurate and influential reports on animal protection and ethics. Winners will be announced in December where there is a $15,000 reward.
For more information see the below copied post from earlier this summer.
Animal Experience: Consciousness and Emotions in the Natural World has now been published in the "Living Books About Life" series through Open Humanities Press. The book is open-access, free, and online for you to read.
