Young Voices for Animals

We're joined by a founder of the orgnisation Young Voices for Animals (YVA), along with some participants from the first round of YVA's Catalyst program.

In this episode, we speak with philosopher Michael Hauskeller about the problematic framing of animals within transhumanism. We also chat with recently completed PhD Ashley Keefner about her thesis on how prejudice impacts the study of animal minds.

In this week’s show, we check the pulse of the vegan community in Melbourne by speaking to people at the Spring Vegan Festival that was held at the old Meat Market. We discuss the challenges facing animals, what is inspiring about the vegan movement and where people find hope.
