Our 69th show features and interview with Melanie Joy, author of the book Strategic Action for Animals. Melanie talks about the most effective ways of building a movement. We also ask her about the abolitionist vs welfarist divide in the modern animal liberation movement, the tactics of Peta, and much more. This show also occurs a couple days before Thanksgiving so we give tips about surviving the holiday.
This year our regularly scheduled show falls on Thanksgiving, and we take the opportunity to get the animal rights message out while the blood is pooling on the counters of US citizens celebrating the genocide of Native Americans. First we talk about Peta's investigation into Butterball's House of Horrors.
Show 26 features talk about turkeys with Susie Coston from Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glenn, NY. Susie is the caretaker of the hundreds of animals who reside at Farm Sanctuary, and knows each one by name. With the turkey holocaust known as Thanksgiving coming up we thought it would be a good idea have Susie remind us how amazing turkeys are and why we shouldn't eat them.
