Hosted by
Duncan Strauss

Duncan Strauss is the host of “Talking Animals,” a show about animals and animal issues that he launched at a Southern California station in June of 2003, bringing it to WMNF at the end of 2005. It currently airs Wednesdays from 11AM-Noon. Past guests include Jane Goodall, Alec Baldwin, Temple Grandin & Triumph The Insult Comic Dog. Strauss lives in Jupiter Farms, FL with his family, including three cats, two horses and one dog. He spends each day talking to those animals, and maintains they talk right back to him, an as yet unverified claim. More information and other features--including audio archives of every single show--can be found at
