I got to talk octopuses with Abby Wendel, of This Land Press, in my hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Do they have consciousness? Why are they so intelligent? Are they lonely, or do their eight independently wired arms keep them company all day? (“No! Bad arm! Fourth right arm, you’re the worst!”)

Here is a link to our whole conversation about Octopus! The Most Mysterious Creature In the Sea–complete with musical interludes from The Beatles, and, of course, The Little Mermaid.
