Episode 22 Wild Mouse, Veganacious Podcast, Farmers Perception

Episode 22 Wild Mouse, Veganacious Podcast, Farmers Perception


Hello and welcome to the twenty second episode of Coexisting With Nonhuman Animals

On this episode, I'd like to introduce a friends new podcast, talk about teaching people to respect small animals, a perception of farmers, killing deer in national parks and killing sick race horses.

I'd decided to dedicate this episode of my show to my friend Barbara DeGrande , of Veganacious.com, who has now started her very own podcast promoting Abolitionist Veganism, but I have a sad story to tell about a small visitor. While respecting my friendship with Barbara, I'd first like to talk about a very small friend, who I found in a bad way.

Episode 21 NZ Pro Whaling, Mcdonalds+Weightwatchers, Temple Grandin

Episode 21

NZ Pro Whaling, Mcdonalds+Weightwatchers, Temple Grandin

Hello and welcome to episode 21 of Coexisting With Nonhuman Animals.

This episode I'd like to talk about New Zealand becoming a Pro Whaling country, Mcdonalds and Weightwatchers entering an unholy relationship, and the HBO Temple Grandin movie.

A recent news story in New Zealand is how we may become a Pro Whaling country. It sickens me to even say that, "New Zealand, my country, a proud, Pro Whaling country".

I'll be covering NZ potentially being "pro whaling", and a trailer for the HBO Temple Grandin movie.

Adam Kochanowicz about Welfarism

An excellent article by Adam Kochanowicz, who explains problems with Welfare reform much better than I did on my last episode :)

"Animal welfarism is no more absent today than it was in 1641 when the first animal welfare laws were written in the United States. We believe the powers that be are hard at work ensuring the best possible conditions for the nonhuman animals we call food."

"These conceptions are very attractive. They ensure we can continue to enjoy the fruits of animals while believing we are participating in a mutual or fair exchange. The reality of our relations to nonhumans shows us a truth we all have feared accepting: We shouldn't eat animals. If we care about sentient beings, we shouldn't even eat from them or use them as our property. That we derive a benefit from exploitation is not a moral justification."

Episode 20 Swallowing Goldfish, SPCA Pearl giveaway, Sow Crates...Again...

Hello, welcome to episode 20 of Coexisting With Nonhuman Animals. This episode, live Goldfish Swallowing, the SPCA giving away pearls and SAFE are still focusing on Happy Meat.

I'd like to say hello to all the people who read my blog, I write and read from a script as I record each episode, some times you can tell I am reading because of how i am talking like I am reading.... I put the script up on my blog when I post the audio. I like having the script up for people to read, because the more information, the better, but I really would plead to the people who only read my scripts, please listen to the audio as well, I mean, the point of this podcast is for me to play clips for you, you're not meant to be paying attention to what I say! The clips are the whole point of my show, and I dont really want to transcribe each clip I use :) However, if you are trying to avoid hearing my voice, you can always watch the full video clips I include on my show, these are listed at the bottom of each script.
