Freedom of Species

Freedom of Species

by

Animal advocacy on the airwaves, hosted by a team of local animal advocates. Davita and Trev fact check arguments for and against veganism in this show, related to health, ethics and the environment. We do not support an uncritical adoption of a vegan diet, so that’s why often heard arguments within the vegan movement will be scrutinized too. Some of the arguments we discuss: “It is natural for us to eat animals” – major red flags! What is this ‘appeal to nature’ argument? And how have other social justice movements responded to this ‘nature’ argument? “Veganism cures diseases” or “A vegan diet is more healthy than eating animal flesh”.
