Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains Species Bias

Why do we eat some animals and not eat others? On this explainer, Neil deGrasse Tyson and comic co-host Chuck Nice discuss their thoughts on the animal kingdom. Are we biased towards species that seem more like our own? Did some species have an easier road through evolution? We talk dolphins and confront our species bias with regards to what we decide to take in as pets and what we decide to eat. Are some of the branches in the tree of life “more valuable”? Aren’t plants just as alive as animals? Find out how we should redesign the circle of life, if we could, on another StarTalk explainer!
