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.
