We start off the episode by playing Katie’s TV interview on puppy farms and discussing pet adoption. We then give some updates on live animal export and Australian animal slaughter by playing our discussion on Indymedia on RTR 92.1FM – you can listen to the whole episode by going to this link and choosing the 6th of August episode. We go through some listener feedback and discuss the website http://bvganfematheist.com/, then we play Nick’s talk ‘Food and Social Justice: How What We Eat Can Benefit People, Animals and the Environment’. This talk was recorded at the 2011 Cruelty Free Festival and you can view the powerpoint for it here. We finish by discussing the environmental impact of animal products, considering other animals in all of the choices we make, travelling as a vegan, The Vegan Easy Challenge, and the Food Empowerment Project – including their fair trade chocolate list.
