This week, the vegan sociologist David Nibert speaks about how animal exploitation, human violence, capitalism, and colonialism are interconnected.

This week’s episode features my recent interview with the sociologist David Nibert, Professor of Sociology at Wittenberg University in Ohio. David is the author of two books about the entanglements of animal oppression and human violence, and he is the editor of a two-volume book series titled Animal Oppression and Capitalism. He is also a co-founder of the section on Animals and Society of the American Sociological Association. In this interview, David speaks about how the oppression of nonhuman animals has historically led to warfare between humans, as well as pandemics and environmental destruction, and how this continues to this day. He explains how capitalism, colonialism, and animal exploitation are connected, and he emphasizes the importance of being involved in activism, including vegan education, and changing our language to reflect our values.
