Sierra Tasi Baker of the Squamish Nation speaks to us on why she chose a vegan lifestyle, how this fits with her traditional Coast Salish values, and how animal activists can advocate for animals in a way that’s respectful toward Indigenous people.
This show includes a feature interview with Emily Wilson, the founder and head chef at Living Tree Foods. We discuss her background as an animal rights lawyer and her passion for affordable, delicious, and local vegan cheese products. We also hear a story from pattrice jones discussing her first time bringing ducks to Vine Sanctuary and the assumptions we make about non-human animals based on the narrative that animals are motivated by reproduction and survival, rather than love, eros, and community.
In this show, we have a feature interview with compassionate horse carer and author Ren Hurst, on honouring consent with horses and other animals as well as the effect of domestication on nonhuman animals and humans and Linda Bakker from Wildlife Rescue Association who speak on the displacement of bird populations as a result of the wildfires in the Pacific Northwest.
