Now in its eighth year, Animals Today covers all things related to animals worldwide, with an emphasis on their welfare.

Different than other animal programs whose focus is solely on pets, Animals Today covers and explores the wide range of topics and issues concerning all animals, including animals in agriculture and in the wild, while promoting increased respect, compassion and kindness toward them. Lori, along with husband and Producer Dr. Peter Spiegel, interview animal protectors and rescuers, legislators and lawyers, and filmmakers and authors from around the globe about the latest animal topics and issues. Commentary, news and more lighthearted features round out this fast-paced and thought-provoking show.

Recent segments have focused on such diverse subjects such as the dangers wind farms pose to eagles, shark conservation efforts, language and communication research in non-human animals, and marijuana for pets.

A few of Animals Today’s noteworthy guests have included Bob Barker, author Dean Koontz, Actress Tippi Hedren, US Representative Tom Marino, CA Assembly member Richard Bloom, award-winning independent journalist Will Potter, and President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, Dr. Neal Barnard. Lori and Peter have covered The Best Friends Animal Society National Conference, the FARM animal rights conference, toured the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary, and have broadcast from other events and locations of interest.

Praise for Animals Today:

“I thank you so much for this show, Lori, you’re a shining light out there – this is spectacularly good and I really appreciate it. The Humane Society of the United States admires you so much in your work, and thanks you.” Dr. John Grandy, Senior VP for Wildlife and Habitat Protection, HSUS.

“I want to thank you for what you do, it’s a pleasure for me to be on your program, and I’m really glad we can get behind something as positive as this bill…” Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger, speaking about pet devocalization ban legislation.

“Lori and Peter, I am a big fan of Animals Today and deeply appreciate your work to cover the important issues concerning the treatment of animals in all sorts of venues all around the world. Anyone who cares about animals should listen to Animals Today.” Marc Bekoff, author and Professor Emeritus, University of Colorado.
