About the show

Sufjan Stevens, Sam Roberts, The Strokes .

This week, Rachael Bailes introduces us to the strange but also familiar world of animal learning. With the help of Charles Darwin, Thomas Hardy and The Lion King, we take a look at the roots of human learning and what you can do to protect yourself against the coming octopus apocalypse.

Rachael Bailes is a PhD candidate at the University of Edinburgh and a member of the Language Evolution and Computation research unit. Her current research takes an experimental approach to exploring the role of common ground and culture in referential comprehension.
