Have you thought about a vegan or vegetarian diet for your cats and dogs?

We ask Professor Andrew Knight from the University of Winchester, who is also a veterinarian, why would we? And how?

We play part of the recent Sydney seminar titled "Rethinking Kangaroos" & hosted by Voiceless.

"Australia's iconic kangaroos are hunted in the largest commercial slaughter of land-based wildlife on the planet.

While similar wildlife trades, such as the Canadian seal hunt or the Japanese whaling industry, attract global condemnation due to their brutality, the kangaroo hunt is unchallenged.

Is it simply a matter of our perception that allows this hunt to continue unopposed?

We talk with Damien Mander, the Australian founder of the International Anti-Poaching Foundation, about his work in southern Africa, the future prospects of the rhino, and being unwussy.

We chat with Shakira Free Miles from SaveABulls, a veterinary-led campaign based in the UK, creating awareness about breed-specific legislation, promoting responsible dog ownership & an end to breed discrimination. We also discuss with Bruce Poon from the Animal Justice Party, the recent recommendations regarding BSL in Victoria, Australia after an extensive inquiry into the legislation there.

We ask Athans Steffen from People Against Canned Hunting about how the selfie has become a weapon of mass destruction when it comes to lion cubs & how we must start sizing up the very idea of big cat sanctuaries.

Are kangaroos really at "plague proportions"?

Isn't kangaroo meat the green ethical choice when it comes to meat consumption?

These are just some of the questions Voiceless urges the public to ask with their new campaign for kangaroos.

More cruelty footage of pig farming cruelty was exposed recently by Animal Liberation from the Yelmah piggery in SA.
We ask why pigs in the food production system literally have no chance in hell in escaping cruelty under present regulatory systems.
We speak with Campaign Director for Animal Liberation, Emma Hurst, Chris Delforce from Aussie Farms & Pete Crosbie from Willowite Sanctuary.

On this week's show, we meet Vincent Berraud. Vincent has been involved in animal liberation for two and a half decades. He took part in the creation of Paris’s first animal lib group, magazine and radio show in the early 1990s.

What's changed its name (not its business) 6 times, been legally thrown out of many environments because it is basically killing them and yet its cruel net of killing in our Australian waters is welcomed?

After finding out about this issue, I can't get this Edvard Munch "The Scream" expression off my face. These are the boats we should be stopping Australia!!

We discuss the Geelong Star supertrawler with Andy Meddick, candidate for Corangamite for the Animal Justice Party.
