In a fascinating, passionate wide-ranging podcast, Andrew and Susan explore the nature of the human/animal/nature relationship; what it can give us, and the beautiful nature of the reciprocal universe — a universe that responds to our love. Andrew clarifies the essence of his recent book, Savage Grace, which is what he feels is needed at this time, and the vital importance and joy of coming from a spiritual place as we practice activism.
