The episode features Bede Carmody’s talk ‘Sustainable Activism: How to avoid becoming burnt out as an activist’. You can hear part one of this talk, covering what activist burnout is and why it is an important issue to address, on episode 177. The parts of the talk we play on this episode are on signs of activist burnout and tips for avoiding activist burnout. Bede works full-time for Amnesty International AND also runs A Poultry Place animal sanctuary!

Here are some additional sources on activist burnout that Bede recommends: flyer on sustainable activism and avoiding burnout by Activist Trauma Support, a 5 Minute Mindful Breathing Exercise (you can also hear Katie discussing mindfulness on episode 92), plantothrive.net.au (which features an article by Bede), lifelongactivist.com, compassionfatigue.org and rockwoodleadership.org.

The episode also features some listener feedback on our article on the Animal Justice Party, the Advertising Standards Authority finds that humane milk is a myth and further discussion on the topic of wild animal suffering, which we covered on episode 172. If you’re interested in hearing more on this topic, we recommend Alex Vince’s talk ‘Challenging the Pest Epithet’, from the 2016 Institute for Critical Animal Studies (ICAS) Oceania conference. Bede’s talk is also from this conference – you can find links to listen to all of the talks from this conference in the show notes for our 152nd episode. We’ve also recently both attended and spoken at the 2017 ICAS conference – we’ll do a recap of that conference next episode and you can also hear the talks we’ve uploaded from this conference here.

Vanessa and her two co-hosts recording VeganSci podcast.

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 (65mins, 53MB).

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.
