Ethical Debate on Animal Rights

The People's Countryside Environmental Debate Podcast

31-10-2023 • 41 mins

How do misconceptions about the meat and dairy industries, like the one Suzi shared about cows producing milk because they are pregnant, contribute to the way we view and treat animals in our society?

Listen in to this episode, as your regular hosts Stuart 'The Wildman' Mabbutt and William Mankelow, joined by Suzi Darrington who once again takes her seat in the listener's chair, as they take a deep but relatable dive into this compelling listener question posed by Nigel in Blackbird Leys, Oxford, England:

"What have Vegans got against eating butter and eggs, or drinking milk? How do those things hurt animals?"

Throughout the episode, Stuart, William, and Suzi explore the complexities of veganism, ethical consumption, and the importance of raising awareness, without alienating individuals.

Among other things they discuss the ethical implications of consuming products meant for other animals' babies, the environmental aspects of different diets, and the ethics surrounding the treatment of animals in the meat industry.

At one point Stuart plays the role of the devil's advocate, prompting a question: should vegans dictate to meat eaters when the production processes of vegan food are not entirely sustainable either?
