We'll be streaming the animal cognition program live from the Skirball Center in NYC, featuring Brian Hare, Vanessa Woods, Jeremy Niven, Patrick Hof, and Klaus ZuberbÃ¼hler. And moderated by RadioLab's Jad Abumrad.
Kick-off is at 3pm today. ScienceBlogs Editor Evan Lerner will be calling the game with me in the L'Blog booth, playing Jerry the King to my JR.

Carl Zimmer on Animals Like Us
This World Science Festival is Wonderful!:) The topic "All Creature Great and Smart" is very close to my heart. As an environmentalist, the animal/human connection has been an on-going project of mine for many years. This Festival has so much potential to speed up higher consciousness and awareness for so many people and in so many ways.
