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.
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.
