His first book, a collection of pro-feminist and environmental essays, was recently released. It’s called We Choose to Speak, and Other Essays.

Resistance Radio - Guest: Jill Robinson
Jill Robinson has been a pioneer of animal welfare in Asia since 1985, widely recognised as the world’s leading expert on the bear bile industry, having campaigned against it since 1993. UK born, Jill arrived in Hong Kong in 1985 and spent 12 years working for the International Fund for Animal Welfare. She founded “Dr Dog” in 1991, the first animal-therapy programme in Asia. More than 1,000 dogs have since qualified as "therapists", visiting hospitals, disabled centres, schools and elderly homes in cities across Asia. In 1993, a visit to a “bear farm” in China defined Jill’s future. Exposing the plight of endangered Asiatic black bears cruelly farmed for bile extraction, Jill embarked on a journey to end the practice. In 1998, she founded Animals Asia, an organisation devoted to ending bear bile farming in China and Vietnam and bring about long-term change for animals by promoting compassion and respect. Today, Animals Asia has rescued over 600 bears, caring for them at its award-winning bear sanctuaries in China and Vietnam, and has signed a formal agreement with the Vietnam government to end bear bile farming by 2022

the interview with jeff gibbs, the guy who made Planet of the Humans, is truly outstanding, inspirational, heartfelt, Real, though perhaps disturbing to some who also perhaps need disturbing
Derrick has a way of first finding, then bringing into his conversational embrace, such an amazing array of deeply committed, intelligent and powerfully empathetic people that every episode becomes a discovery of brilliant gems. I get deeply saddened and discouraged by the trajectory of our species and the horrible consequences it has on the galaxy of living beings we are meant to share this home with. And I can’t say these conversations necessarily serve as a balm on that sorrow but it makes me feel much less alone - or crazy - knowing there are such valiantly good people standing up for Nature. Derrick is doing extremely important work in giving a voice to this Resistance.
My Favorite Podcast. Derrick is great.
