On the latest episode:

The Simply Vegan Podcast with Dr Melanie Joy

For today’s interview, we’re joined by Dr Melanie Joy – author of Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows and founder of advocacy group Beyond Carnism.

We discuss what prompted her to go vegetarian and then vegan, what carnism means, and why our systems are structured to make us believe it’s OK to support harm to animals.

She shares her views on how and why society has a bias towards meat-eating, why carnivores get defensive, and why there are negative vegan stereotypes in which we are deemed over-emotional and irrational.

Should we try to convert people? How can we cope with that sense of urgency to turn people vegan? And how should we talk to our loved ones about veganism?  Dr Melanie Joy answers all these questions and more as she outlines how we can be effective ambassadors for veganism without causing a divide.
