Animals in the workplace: workers made to toil ludicrous hours, and never, ever do they get paid a penny. We hear about the experiences of guide dogs for the blind, and an office where employees are encouraged to bring their dogs to work. Plus Dr Philip Low, a leading neuroscientist at Stanford University, talks about animal rights and consciousness, and animal behavioral scientist Con Slobodchikoff gives us a lesson in the language of prairie dogs.

From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
