This is a bit of a departure for this thread, but this 6-minute ScienceNow podcast is what I was listening to earlier tonight. Gotta' love those bonobos.

She says that when it comes to emotional intelligence, they put the human world to shame. Podcast produced by David Levin. Interview by Susan K. Lewis.
