Wednesday March 17th, 2021 with Carolyn
This week, the vegan sociologist Dr. Roger Yates returns to the show to discuss a variety of topics related to the vegan and animal rights movement.

This week, I am happy to present my third interview with the sociologist, long-term vegan, and animal rights advocate Dr. Roger Yates. In this interview, Roger speaks to me about the following topics: * the history of the Vegan Society's definition of veganism * how the animal advocacy movement has changed since Roger became a vegan in 1979 * the focus and scope of the vegan social movement, and what Roger means when he says that vegan advocacy is new * the opportunities and obstacles that arise from using different forms of media to promote veganism * the role that cultural speciesism plays in perpetuating animal exploitation in society * the impact that the vegan education group Go Vegan World has had in Ireland * whether the COVID-19 pandemic will affect humans' relationships with nonhuman animals in the long run * the importance of reading to educate ourselves about animal rights theory It's a very interesting discussion. Thanks to Roger for being a guest on the show again! Links Roger's website and blog: Go Vegan World: "And If You Know Your History..." blog series by Roger Yates: Always for Animal Rights blog:
