BBC World Service: "Why do we project our emotions onto animals?"

The BBC World Service has released a four-minute audio clip featuring interviews with two furries.

The clip is from an 18-minute podcast about anthropomorphism, "Animals Are Us?"; an episode of "The Why Factor", a programme exploring "the extraordinary and hidden histories behind everyday objects and actions".

Flayrah has a transcript and background on how the interviews came about. The full episode will be broadcast internationally in 24 hours, with repeats through Monday.
