The Week in Tweets – 26th July

This is our (almost) weekly segment where we review the content posted on our Twitter over the course of the week. It’s a long post! So make sure you grab a coffee and prepare yourself for some serious reading.

The Tweet of the Week

Overtime, I have occasionally posted podcasts from Generation Anthropocene.  They are not dog podcasts, but mostly cover environmental issues, hence why they aren’t shared extensively on this blog.  However, a recent podcast made me think about the dog world: Balance of Evidence revisted.  While this podcast talks about evidence in climate change, I couldn’t help but think the same ideas apply to so many dog issues: Breed specific legislation, no kill sheltering, desexing. As such, I really suggest listening to this podcast.  I also tweeted another podcast from Generation Anthropocene this week: The Dawn of De-extinction.
