Radio Animal in Lancaster Market Square, 23rd October 2009

Radio Animal was in Lancaster on Friday 23rd October, conducting interviews with passing Lancastrians and visitors in which the focus was on contested human/non-human animal borders – in short, interspeciesspaces. People with stories of animal encounters within the home were invited to visit the mobile Radio Animal unit, bringing their ideas, perspectives or concerns regarding ‘encroachment’ and the sharing of space with the ‘animal other’. In addition we spoke to a number of invited interviewees including an angler and hunt follower, the Bird Man of Torrisholme and an artist with a special interest in taxonomy and anthropology.
