Lucy

08/09/2014 - Chimps.  Bonobos.  Humans.  We're all great apes, but that doesn't mean we're one happy family.  This hour of Radiolab: stories of trying to live together.  Is this kind of cross-species co-habitation an utterly stupid idea?  Or might it be our one last hope as more and more humans fill up the planet?  A chimp named Lucy teaches us the ups and downs of growing up human and a visit to The Great Ape Trust in Des Moines, Iowa highlights some of the basics of bonobo culture (be careful, they bit).
