Radiolab: Lucy

Chimps. Bonobos. Humans. We’re all great apes. This hour we take a look at what happens when we all try to live together. Is this idea utterly stupid? Or might it be our one last hope as more and more humans fill up the planet?

Of particular interest is the story of Lucy. A chimp raised by adoptive parents psychologist Dr. Maurice K. Temerlin and his wife Jane. The haunting image above is from that story. Radiolab helps paint a moving story if the blurred lines between species and the impact it can have.
