This audio presentation was sparked by a fascination with Oxfam Unwrapped, a charitable organization that allows customers to purchase animals for people in the Global South and perform this donation under the name of another person. This project critiques Oxfam’s humanitarian initiative and explores what is involved in gifting an animal on behalf of someone else.

At the time of recording, Sam Grinnell was in his third year of a combined major in Cultural Studies and English.
