    Are Zoos Ethical For Animals?

    Are Zoos Ethical For Animals?

    One of our fondest memories is having a family outing at the zoo. It was surreal to see lions, tigers, elephants, and monkeys in person.

    Not only that, but zoos are critical for conservation and public education. At least so we thought…

    There’s a dark side to the zoo industry to suggest it’s more entertainment than conservation. But is it?

    In this conversation, we discuss the ethical considerations of zoos and some alternative ways to connect with animals.

    Are We Done With Minimalism?

    Are We Done With Minimalism?

    On the surface, it appears that minimalism has reached the mainstream. Minimalism is more widely accepted and, as a result, has lost its flair.

    Back in episode 46, we discussed what the future of minimalism would look like and pontificated on the trendiness of the movement.

    Well, almost two years on—where does it stand? More importantly, how do we feel about minimalism today?

    The answer might surprise you…

    In this conversation, we share our reflections on minimalism from people who create content about the very topic.

    Why Do People Hate Vegans?

    Why Do People Hate Vegans?

    Studies show that vegans are viewed more negatively than atheists, immigrants, homosexuals, and asexuals. In fact, the only group viewed more negatively than vegans were drug addicts!

    Beyond the surveys, we’ve felt it too. Whether it’s eating out with friends or meeting someone for the first time, veganism comes with an air of inconvenience, stigma and sometimes hate.

    Why is that? Why do so many people seem to dislike vegans? In this episode, we step outside of our vegan-friendly algorithms and face the harsh truth of how people feel about vegans and what that means for animal rights advocates.

    What You Do For Work Is Not Your Identity

    What You Do For Work Is Not Your Identity

    When you meet someone for the first time, consciously and unconsciously, you’re assessing their status based on their job, education, where they live, the clothes they wear, the car they drive, and their cultural background.

    And you know what?

    They’re doing the exact same thing to you.

    But how healthy is status classification? Why does it matter so much to us?

    Whether we want to admit it or not, we have a deep desire to prove ourselves and feel important. And what’s scary is that we place much of our self-worth on these status signals.

    In this conversation, we explore the challenges with wrapping status into our identities, and how minimalism can play a role in shifting the perspective of identity and value.
