Welcome to the Forbidden Rice Podcast, an ongoing series of talks in which I don rose-colored glasses and address subjects that can be sticky, gritty, and challenging. I hope what I say will help you keep your highest ideals in mind all the time, shoot for the stars, make the world a better place, and to be true to your deepest self.

If we knew how animals thought and felt, perhaps we would treat them much better than we do. In this talk I explore animal intelligence and consciousness.
