    Making "life and death" decisions for your pet

    Molly and Carl finally get their dream jobs as vets but soon learn it's not all cuddles with cute animals — big and important decisions have to be made. Like whether to de-sex a pet or when it might be best to euthanise a much-loved furry member of the family.

Let's see how Molly and Carl deal with a little thing called… the end of the world.

Amazing!

This is an amazing podcast! I’ve been listening to it for ages! One of my ethical questions is: is it EVER okay to be mean?
Keep up the great work! ༼ つ ◕◡◕ ༽つ
