    Episode 40 of The Species Barrier....Part two of our interview with Karen I Shragg, author
    of Moving Upstream: A Call to Solve Overpopulation, in her book Karen
    challenges everyone from green organisations to politicians to deal with
    a key causal issue instead of the symptoms.

    We discuss the development of The Lawns complex in Lincoln and the
    continual loss of remaining green spaces. We speak to Pete who is a
    local man who has a deep attachment to the site and the wild animals who
    live there.

    Also, in the news we are permanently beyond 400ppm and in the wake of
    such stark facts ethicists ask should we reproduce in an era of such
    inevitable climate change? Bees become an endangered species, and 10% of
    remaining wilderness lost since 1993.

    The Species Barrier 38 Otherworldly

    The Species Barrier 38 Otherworldly

    Coming up today award-winning speaker, educator,
    author, and musician Will Tuttle discusses his spiritual approach to
    vegan education. Rebecca from the reasonable vegan website and Rob,the
    author of Rational Morality argue that all advocacy should be partaken
    using rational reasoning only.

    We discuss Harambe the gorilla, alligators at Disney and a vegan climber
    dying on Everest. A paper in nature suggests the Paris climate
    agreement can't stay under 1.5 degrees and 1.5 wouldn't have been
    sufficient anyway.

Customer Reviews

Fan in Scotland ,

Logically consistent and excellent for activists

Not afraid to tackle difficult issues for vegans and have an alternative view on things. Excellently takes veganism to its proper conclusions (e.g. antinatalism) and doesn't fail to discuss them thoroughly. Really connects activists and tells of real-life ways to do more than just live a vegan lifestyle. Also friendly, very caring hosts who are amusing and have a nice reportoire. Really recommend to anyone interested in ethics.

Critical Transit ,

Smart hosts, terrific guests, very informative & unconventional perspectives.

A fantastic new podcast featuring two very intelligent, open-minded and forward thinking activists, with great conversations and excellent guests who challenge conventional thinking with new perspectives. Entertaining yet serious and radical; I always learn a lot.
