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.

This episode features Adam Cardilini’s talk ‘Diversity in animal activism: Preparing for impact opportunities for the next 10 years’. This talk was recorded at the 2016 ICAS Oceania conference – see the show notes for episode 152 for links to the audio of all of the talks from this conference. You can view the PowerPoint presentation for Adam’s talk here and it is also embedded below.

Nick and Adam also discuss effective animal activism and question whether the evidence actually suggests animal advocates should avoid promoting veganism. In this discussion we cover Faunalytics recommendations for activism based on their study on former vegetarians and vegans. We point to other research suggesting that people who became vegetarian for ethical reasons and specifically for animal rights reasons were more likely to stay vegetarian than those who made the decision based on other reasons, such as concern for their health. We also mention the study ‘A Pound of Flesh’ and give a “public health announcement” regarding the importance of B12 for vegans.
