Ep 22: The Death of Regan Russell & The Danger of Bill 156

On June 19th 2020, Regan Russell was killed. ⁣⁣An activist since the 1970s, she was at Fearman’s Pork slaughterhouse with Toronto Pig Save for a regular vigil. During these vigils the activists have an agreement with the slaughterhouse where the trucks stop outside for 2 minutes, so the activists can approach and give the pigs water and show them some comfort.However, on that day, one of the truck drivers ran Regan over and killed her. ⁣⁣In today's episode, I discuss how the new Bill 156, which was passed just a few days before, could have potentially pushed the truck driver to act in a way that ultimately ended a human life.Bill 156 exists to prevent activists from filming animal suffering on farms and during transport, making it illegal to do so.⁣⁣

Ep 21: "I've Been an Undercover Investigator Since 2001: Here's What I Want You to Know"

Today I talk to America's leading undercover investigator Pete Paxton, who has spent the past couple of decades exposing what happens to animals in a huge range of animal exploitation facilities - including farms, fishing vessels and in more than 700 puppy mills. His work has been featured in both HBO and National Geographic documentaries, and he has not only raised a huge amount of mass awareness to what happens to animals, but his work has been instrumental in holding owners and workers in these industries accountable, taking them to court and securing prosecutions. We talk in depth about some of his experiences, and also what lessons he has learnt from his time as an undercover investigator.✺ Pete's book - Rescue Dogs: Where They Come From, Why They Act the Way They Do, and How to Love Them Well: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/599676/rescue-dogs-by-pete-paxton-with-gene-stone/✺ To support the show & get access to exclusive monthly podcast episodes: http://www.patreon.com/earthlinged✺ Find out more about what i do & join my mailing list: http://www.earthlinged.org✺ Download my free 122 page e-book: http://www.earthlinged.org/ebook✺ Take a 22 day free vegan challenge: http://switchtovegan.co.uk✺ Become a supporter of my activism (thank you!): http://www.earthlinged.org/support

Ep 19: The Last Bailout - Why We Need to Reform Agricultural Subsidies

This week I discuss the $19 billion bail out that the Trump administration has given to US farmers, and the wider issue of subsidising animal agriculture in general. I also discuss the UK government’s new plan for subsiding agriculture in the wake of leaving the EU, and how their new system could actually pave the way for a complete reform that would incentivise the shift to a plant-based food system.✺ To support the show & get access to exclusive monthly podcast episodes: http://www.patreon.com/earthlinged✺ Find out more about what i do & join my mailing list: http://www.earthlinged.org✺ Download my free 122 page e-book: http://www.earthlinged.org/ebook✺ Take a 22 day free vegan challenge: http://switchtovegan.co.uk✺ Become a supporter of my activism (thank you!): http://www.earthlinged.org/support

Ep 18: "We're Modern Day Slaves" - The Truth About COVID-19 & The People Who Kill Animals

In this episode I delve into the current slaughterhouse situation in the US, talking not only about the outbreaks of COVID-19 in US facilities and the effect that is having on slaughterhouse workers, but also how slaughterhouses foster an environment where workers suffer from mental health problems such as PTSD, drug and alcohol dependency, social isolation and emotional repression. I reflect on some of my personal experiences with slaughterhouses and slaughterhouse workers, and I also discuss how the current pandemic is driving people towards vegan options.✺ To support the show & get access to exclusive monthly podcast episodes: http://www.patreon.com/earthlinged✺ Find out more about what i do & join my mailing list: http://www.earthlinged.org✺ Download my free 122 page e-book: http://www.earthlinged.org/ebook✺ Take a 22 day free vegan challenge: http://switchtovegan.co.uk✺ Become a supporter of my activism (thank you!): http://www.earthlinged.org/support

Breaking down the latest news surrounding COVID-19 in relation to our exploitation of animals.
