Chimps.  Bonobos.  Humans.  We're all great apes, but that doesn't mean we're one happy family.  This hour of Radiolab:  stories of trying to live together.  A chimp named Lucy teaches us the ups adn downs of growing up human, and a visit to The Great Ape Trust in Des Moines, Iowa highlights some of the basics of bonobo culture.  (Be careful, they bite!)
