Faculty Fellow Rebecca Walker on Animal Ethics

Noel King, host of Vox’s Today, Explained podcast, interviews our Faculty Fellow and UNC Philosophy Professor Rebecca Walker for their December 13, 2023 episode, “Long live your dog.” The episode tackles the question of, should pet owners extend their dog’s lives, in light of of a potential new drug that aims to increase canine’s life expectancy. Rebecca helps listeners explore the ethics of this situation and ultimately argues for an emphasis on improving, rather than extending lives.
