Academic Animals | Behind the Scenes an Introduction to the Podcast!

Updated: Jun 23, 2021

Have you ever wondered how animals on the silver screen perform flawlessly? We’ve watched movies where dogs do incredible things, pigs behave on command, and more. But, if actors and actresses go through rigorous training, do the animals do the same? Who’s responsible for their performance on the film, and how are they trained?

The answer lies with Roger Farr, the host of Academic Animals. Roger decided to create this podcast to share his life and adventures behind the scenes of working with animals, how he takes care of and protects them from the hazards of filming.

With 40+ years of experience in the entertainment industry, Roger has listened to many animal jokes but wants you to join the conversation by sending your animal joke. So maybe you’ll be featured on the show!

We look forward to having you join our community of listeners!
