A Bluedot Favorite Listen: ‘Pests: How Humans Create Animal Villains’


Pests: How Humans Create Animal Villains by Bethany Brookshire is “a great listen,” says Julia Cooper, Bluedot’s Associate Editor (and Good Libations columnist) who got the audiobook from her library. It offers a deep dive into how and why different animals are celebrated v. demonized, Cooper says. “It’s definitely recalibrated how I think about my relationship to my surrounding environment. How can we dissolve the us vs. them mentality when it comes to our relationship with the natural world around us and how did that boundary come to exist in the first place?”
