Writer Susan Orlean has never met a donkey she didn't like. The New Yorker writer's latest book, On Animals, features a menagerie of furry, feathery and fishy creatures that have filled her life and her work. She joins Piya Chattopadhyay to discuss our place in the animal kingdom by considering what the rise of the backyard chicken says about society, our unending quest to speak across species, and what animals can teach us about being human.
