Jamie Woodhouse of the project, Sentientism: Evidence, reason and compassion, recently interviewed me for its podcast. This is a wide-ranging conversation in which Jamie asked me to describe my personal philosophy and beliefs that ground my animal rights work and keep me motivated.
I touch upon issues here that I do not normally discuss in public. This makes this podcast different from the recent two podcasts with Knowing Animals and Our Hen House.
Between these three podcasts, I discuss how I become a vegetarian and then a vegan, and became a full-time advocate for animals. I also look back to my childhood in a working class family with my parents always encouraged me and my sister to be kind to animals. From a local dog rescuer called Camberley Kate to the preeminent author Brigid Brophy, I discuss them and others who have influenced my vegan, animal rights advocacy since the 1970s.
