Vegan Trove Podcast Ep 32: Star Trek and the Issue of Sentience

Listen here Star Trek is a vehicle for science fiction themes, and like many science fiction stories, it sometimes uses the future to focus on issues that touch us today. I look at the issue of sentience, as seen in respect of the character, The Doctor on the series Star Trek: Voyager. After a brief look at the way this pop-cultural icon addresses the issue, I launch into other considerations of sentience, highlighting moral inconsistencies and moral compartmentalisation and the way this relates to non-human animals.VT ep 32 header

Vegan Trove Podcast Ep 28: Abolitionist: What’s in a Word; The Rebranding of TAVS

My latest Vegan Trove podcast Ep 28- Listen here -> “What’s in a Word; The Rebranding of  The Abolitionist Vegan Society

I generally try to ignore and avoid faction fighting because it’s energy draining and time consuming and is frequently personality based, but I decided to address some of the issues that have arisen from recent claims by a small few that the abolitionist movement is “rampantly racist”, “sexist” and “hostile to people of colour”. If you are not involved in the abolitionist community you may wish to skip this one.

I discuss the history of the term “abolitionist” and why it is not racist to use it in relation to veganism and why it is not appropriating the term if we look at history. I talk a little about overt and structural racism, credentialism and tokenism. I ask the question, has the movement become more about the messenger than the message?

Vegan Trove Podcast Ep 15: Can I Bully You Into Adopting My Point Of View?

Listen hereeducation-548105_640.

Is publicly humiliating people on our social media pages in our vegan education efforts helpful or a counterproductive? I speak about this prevalence of this on social media in relation to abolitionist vegan education as well as related issues including claims by a small few that it is racist to promote veganism for the animals.

There’s new trend of rescue animal sanctuaries selling animal products from their refugees of domestication to the nonvegan public, thus reinforcing the public’s nonveganism. I discuss this and also the interrelatedness of all forms of discrimination which are just faces of the same ignorance.
