Episode 22 - Disaster Blues

Episode 22 is here (finally)! In this episode, we respond to a few listener questions, including feedback on our discussion about the vegan flag and identity formation (3:30), feedback from the Fois Gras action in Belgium (8:45), more discussion about the Save Movement (18:20) and our views on sex work (39:05).
For “The Bad and The Rad” we talk about the “Corona Virus Confinement Challenge” (42:10), Gary Yourofsky coming out of retirement (54:50), the new documentary “On The Wild Side” (57:20), the new Queer Wellness Centre in Johannesburg (1:08:27), some useful apps (1:10:31) and the lack of feminist politics within the animal rights movement (1:13:57).
Our main discussion (1:20:40) centres around the Covid-19 pandemic. We chat about the conspiracy theories, how people are responding in terms of activism and discussions around veganism, considering the flaws of capitalism, the social implications of the pandemic and the importance of self-care and looking after our mental health.

Please bear with the sound quality at times - it’s the first time we’ve tried to record separately and without our usual setup.

Content warning for this episode: Covid-19, physical and mental health concerns, self harm, police violence, domestic violence, addiction.

Episode 21 - Crisis

In this episode we discuss how we react to crises and international tragedies as a movement, a society and as vegans, and how making everything about veganism may not be the best idea. We mention the fires in Australia, the new Corona Virus, the floods in Indonesia and in between we rant about our favourite problematic animal rights organisation.

Episode 20 - The Nest: An Interview with Banesa Tseki

In this episode we interview Banesa Tseki, who is the co-owner of The Nest Space, a Black female run yoga studio, zero waste grocer and vegan café in Johannesburg, South Africa. We met her there, did a yoga class with her, and chatted to her about a range of topics, including some of her other projects and her views on veganism, yoga and spirituality, while we sipped on a delicious banana smoothie she made for us. We really enjoyed this interview and we hope you will too.

Episode 13 - Dissecting Language

In this episode we respond to some listener feedback and discuss what we expect from the new “Game Changers” documentary. Our main discussion delves into the language that we use when we talk about non-human animals and the ways that this can perpetuate oppressive and exploitative norms. We also go on a bit of a tangent discussing “dog moms”, “bunny dads” and “furkids”, and how we view and treat our companion animals.

Episode 12 - Are We Too Negative?

In this episode we respond to two listener questions and consider whether we (Pete and Taryn) are too negative, and perhaps even divisive within the vegan community. We delve more into what we think about sharing vegan health facts and messaging that is food-, fat- and disease-shaming, and speak more about our views on abortion and Gary Yourofsky. We also discuss the importance of self-care and dealing with the guilt of escapism in the context of unavoidable participation in a capitalist system that causes harm and exploitation on so many levels.
Trigger warning: We make mention of topics surrounding abortion and sexual assault.
