Welcome to the “office hours” of James Serpell, professor of ethics and animal welfare at the School of Veterinary Medicine and director of the Center for the Interaction of Animals & Society.

Here, in the latest episode of Penn Today’s “Office Hours” podcast series, which explores the minds of the University’s academic talents in a more unbuttoned and freewheeling setting outside of the lecture hall, Serpell joins for a discussion about the parrot that sparked his interest in animal behavior, the use of antidepressants in dogs, his passion for cooking, and why today’s students inspire him.
