Episode 14 - Idea Share - Cognitive Errors

Episode 14 - our first Idea Share Episode! We’ve decided to start a new series of episodes that focus specifically on sharing ideas that either one or both of us have learned, through studies, books, documentaries or personal interest. We want this to be a space where we can share bits of knowledge that we have in some way benefited from.
In this episode we discuss some common cognitive errors and biases.

Email us with feedback, questions, or any other ideas you’d like us to share:

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.

For questions, comments and feedback, e-mail us: mail@letsragetogether.co.za

All recording, editing and music by us.

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.
