If you listen to NPR, you’ve had at least one “driveway moment.” You’re sitting in your parked car, hooked by a story, needing to hear it all the way through. More About Animals features stories of fascinating encounters with our friends from the animal kingdom—some whose behavior seems eerily familiar, some of whom we would like to know better, and some who continue to dazzle us with their wild and mysterious beauty. As these stories reveal, our bond with the animals all around us grows deeper as we discover new and creative ways to share the planet.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In an encore installment, the popular Driveway Moments series revisits the subject of animals. Host Christopher Joyce provides brief contexts for this collection of short animal-themed pieces originally aired on NPR. Whether fierce or cute, feathered or furry, mysterious or comical, these creatures captivate—from mysterious whale sharks that disappear into the deep to give birth, to songbirds that adapt their tunes to cope with city dwelling, and dolphins that reunite with long-lost friends. This collection of more than thirty pieces is voiced by NPR veterans and includes interviews with articulate notables like Jane Goodall, so it’s especially easy on the ear. Whether taking in a few short pieces or absorbing many in one sitting, listeners’ imaginations will be completely engaged by these stories of creatures with whom we share our planet.”
