Dolphin Oral History Project -- April Fool's Day, 2013
Robert Siegel, of NPR's All Things Considered, reported on an effort to record the experiences of U.S. Navy dolphins in their own words. The dolphins were aquatic veterans housed in a home for retired dolphins in landlocked Belleville, Illinois.

Graduate students prompted the dolphins to speak by feeding them fish and then recorded their chatter with underwater microphones.
