The Other Animals

The Other Animals


Philadelphia’s ONLY radio show covering all things animal related!

Why “Other Animals?” Like it or not, we share this world with animals like us, just not the human kind. The Other Animals explores our strange and inconsistent relationship with these other animals.

To be sure, this is not another ‘Wonderful World of Animals’ show,’ nor is it simply vegan advocacy.  Rather, it explores and even celebrates our human inconsistencies, and it grapples with those shades of gray we usually avoid at all costs.

How we interact with any kind of “Others,” human or not, can tell us a great deal about ourselves.

Who is The Manzo?   Your host, Laurent Levy

Laurent Levy received his MS in Anthrozoology, sometimes known as “Human-Animal Studies,” way back in 2016. Among the many “Anzos” in his class, he was the only “Man,” and the Manzo was born.

The host of The Other Animals has a wide array of interests and expertise. An IT Consultant by day, Laurent has an extensive background as a classical musician, a pilot, a Second Generation survivor and student of the Holocaust, and an anthrozoologist.

He has combined these interests to produce The Other Animals, an in-depth exploration of the complex relationships between human and non-human animals.

Laurent believes radio is the perfect platform from which to engage in these discussions. The lack of graphic imagery, which might cause many to immediately “tune out,” is gratefully absent, inviting the opportunity to actively listen, consider, and positively engage.
