Chris Berrow chats to Candace Croney, Professor of Animal Behaviour and Well-being, and Director of the Center for Animal Welfare Science at Purdue University, who was the lead author on this study. How did she design a video game that pigs could play, what does it show about how intelligent they are, and should developers release a game called Porknite or Swinecraft? Plus does this change how we should treat pigs in the future? Join us for a wide-ranging discussion on this topic, in a special bonus episode of the Naked Gaming Podcast. Featuring Hamlet, Omlette, Ebony and Ivory (the pigs)
