This time Nick is joined by Vanessa, a forensic psychology doctoral student and one of the hosts of VeganSci podcast. We discuss some of the content we taught in a Criminology unit on victims of crime, focusing on Nils Christie’s ideal victim concept and how it can help in understanding how the legal system, media and community respond to victims of crime. We also discuss: the monster myth, just world theory and what we can to do challenge victim blaming.

Nick also covers content warnings and free speech, as well as Julian Assange breaking his pledge to travel to the United States if whistleblower Chelsea Manning was pardoned.

This time Nick is joined by Vanessa, a forensic psychology doctoral student and one of the hosts of VeganSci podcast. We discuss animal activism and Vanessa’s experiences with working in prisons. Vanessa also raises the issue of prisoners working in slaughterhouses as part of their rehabilitation. This is despite the psychological harm that slaughterhouse work does to the workers and the communities in which they live. Check out Nick’s interview with an Australian slaughterhouse worker and the journal article ‘Routinized killing of animals: Going beyond dirty work and prestige to understand the well-being of slaughterhouse workers’ for more on this.

We also discuss a recent silent protest against the dairy industry that we were both involved in.

Vanessa also covers how she has cut her shopping budget in half since she has gone vegan. For more on this, you can hear Nick and Katie’s discussion on living vegan on a low income here and below.

Nick also briefly touches on some current events and updates including: Invasion Day rallies 2017, our (old) episode on Invasion Day, Chelsea Manning free 17 May, Centrelink whistle blower, prison privatisation in Australia and pedestrian deaths in Melbourne.

On part one of this episode we are joined by Kirsten Bayes from Stop the Arms Fair! who discusses Occupy vs the Arms Fair (September 8th in London), Australians stopping arms fairs, how you can take action against arms dealers regardless of where in the world you live, queer issues and arms dealers, and animals and war. We also introduce the new segment ‘What you HAVE learnt from Adbusters this week’, discussing issue 109 which has articles on planned obsolescence and riding bikes. In this segment we talk about Jeremy’s finds from the streetbike traffic jams in London, and gender and cycling, drawing on an article by Stevie from Team Earthling and a Critical Transit episode. We also talk about sex toys and light globes (which is more exciting?) and the importance of reading.

We finish part two of the episode by discussing the role of soldiers in war, drawing on the book 10 Excellent Reasons Not to Join the Military. Before this, we take an in-depth look into Chelsea Manning’s (formerly Bradley Manning) coming out as trans and imprisonment. In this discussion we cover using the correct pronouns to refer to her, Andrew Bolt being an asshole, writing letters to Chelsea, being trans in prison, how to be a trans ally, a great flyer on combating hate crimes from Camden LGBT Forum and staying safe without police.

Other topics covered in part two of the episode include: Silent Raging blog and podcast, visiting the Ecuadorian embassy where Assange is, Glenn Greenwald’s partner David Miranda detained to intimidate journalists, the Propaganda exhibition in London, The Book of Mormon, Eric McElroy’s comedy, Australia has committed 143 violations of international law, refugee rights rallies in Melbourne and elsewhere around Australia, the book Walden Two, vegan restaurants in London – including Loving Hut Camden, Manna Cuisine and 222 Veggie Vegan – see Happy Cow to find vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants all around the world – anything can be vegan!
