On this episode we have some back-up from scholarly sources, as well as from Adam Cardilini, who is a scientist, animal advocate and co-host of Vegansci podcast. He discusses some listener feedback on episode 156, covering topics such as new animal-free alternatives, capitalism, effective animal activism, the methodology of the former vegetarian and vegan study by Faunalytics, veganism and B12, using a Fox News level of objectivity and finding the magical vegan dumpling.

We also have a brief discussion about the Invasion Day rally in Melbourne. You can listen to our audio recordings of all of the talks from that event here.

In the second half of the episode we ask Adam some further questions about his talk ‘Diversity in animal activism: Preparing for impact opportunities for the next 10 years’, which we played on episode 156. These questions are on issues such as lab-grown meat, GMOs, technology and the vegan movement. You can listen to the Q and A after Adam’s talk here.

Katie and Nick finish up the episode with a discussion on mental health medication, animal testing and veganism. For more on this topic, check out Katie’s ICAS talk (which we played on episode 131) and for more on mental health medication generally, listen in to our 92nd episode.

You can listen to this episode above and subscribe to our podcast on iTunes. You can also listen to this episode on StitcherCyber Ears or download it on Archive.org (60mins, 29MB).

This episode is all about mental health, drawing on Katie’s personal experiences with mental health issues and Nick’s recent mental health first aid course. We dissect arguments against medication for mental health; discuss Harry Potter, The Hunger Games and mental health (you can share our meme on this, pictured above, on Facebook and Twitter); as well as considering how terms like “able-bodied” and “not societally enabled” fit with mental health.

We finish with some recommendations and advice for people with mental health issues, as well as those who want to be allies. These include: seeking help, Mindfulness meditation, doing a mental health first aid course, trying to normalise mental health issues and reduce the stigma, and avoiding ableist language. For more on mental health, check out the Queer Punx’s mental health special.

Also covered on the episode is Nick’s interview with a slaughterhouse worker, media coverage of Islam compared to Christianity, and shout outs to the Species Barrier podcast and Jeremy @CriticalTransit – follow for sustainable transport info!
