Jack Harries: Do You Have To Be Vegan To Be An Environmentalist?

IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK! Please subscribe, leave a review and share with your friends!Jack Harries is a filmmaker, environmentalist and WWF ambassador. He rose to fame after he launched a highly successful YouTube channel which he ran with his identical twin brother Finn, to document his Gap Year. We discuss his journey to veganism, the hypocrisy of sustainability, mental health, therapy and of course, food. I’m only sad to say that this interview was recorded just a short while before Jack was arrested for protesting with Extinction Rebellion at the International Petroleum Conference, where gas and oil tycoons gathered in their glad rags, trying to pretend that we don’t have a global catastrophe on our hands. Jack, you're a hero.“It’s difficult to talk about environmentalism without being a hypocrite. It’s almost impossible to leave the house without having some kind of negative impact on the environment - unfortunately that’s just the way it is. But I don’t think it should stop you being able to have these conversations if you’re not the most perfect environmentalist because then no one would have these conversations and nothing would change. You have to have these personal inner conflicts because it forces you to think about your own lifestyle.”Jack's Newsletter Recommendations:https://e360.yale.edu/newsletterhttps://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/oct/19/sign-up-to-the-green-light-emailhttps://www.nytimes.com/newsletters/climate-changeFind Jack on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jackharries/Jack's work: http://jacksonharries.com/Find Me On Instagram: https://instagram.com/venetiafalconerSign Up To My Newsletter: http://eepurl.com/gdU0U1Join The Slow Fashion Exchange: http://bit.ly/SlowFashionExchangeTickets To My LIVE PODCAST EVENT on 18th March with Laura Thomas (author of Just Eat It): http://bit.ly/2NFHxr2  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Professor Charles Spence: The Psychology Of Food

Charles Spence is the head of the Crossmodal Research Laboratory at Oxford University. He is interested in how people perceive the world around them. In particular, how our brains manage to process the information from each of our different senses (such as smell, taste, sight, hearing, and touch) to form the extraordinarily rich multi-sensory experiences that fill our daily lives. His research focuses on how a better understanding of the human mind will lead to the better design of multi-sensory foods, products, interfaces, and environments in the future. Over the years, Charles has consulted for a number of multinational companies advising on various aspects of multi-sensory design, packaging, and branding. Perhaps most famously, Charles worked with Heston Blumenthal, chef of The Fat Duck restaurant on his multi-sensory food experiences, not to mention the 2008 IG Nobel prize for nutrition, for his groundbreaking work on the ‘sonic crisp’.Find Charles' book: https://amzn.to/2jJZpWhIf you enjoyed this podcast, please SUBSCRIBE!Find me on Instagram: http://instagram.com/venetiafalconer  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

This pint-sized wonder has trained at some of the best and most competitive ballet schools in world, so I wanted to find out whether the stereotypical restrictive ballerina diet is fact or fiction. Sassy also explains how she got into food blogging before it was basic and how she developed a line of healthy snacks, which she managed to get into Whole Foods, Planet Organic and Ocado - aged just 16. Oh, and she’s also found the time to write a cook book and launch her new dance inspired class concept: Ballet Blast. It's no surprise that this beauty is in hot demand!If you’ve been affected by anything in this podcast: please head to beateatingdisorders.org.ukKeep up with Sassy on Instagram @naturally.sassy and with me @venetiafalconer  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
