Wednesday June 2nd, 2021 with Carolyn Harris
In Part Two of my interview with the vegan philosopher and virtue ethicist Carlo Alvaro, we discuss why veganism should not endorse lab "meat", why plant-based replicas of animal products are problematic, and why a whole foods vegan diet is optimal.

This week, we’ll be listening to Part Two of my interview with the vegan philosopher and virtue ethicist, Carlo Alvaro. Carlo is an Associate Professor of philosophy at CUNY New York City College of Technology. He is the author of Ethical Veganism, Virtue Ethics, and the Great Soul, published in 2019, as well as Raw Veganism: The Philosophy of The Human Diet, which was published in 2020. His third book, The Book of Raw, will be published by Lantern Publishing & Media in November 2021. In Part One of this interview, Carlo spoke about what led him to become a vegan, and he explained the philosophy of Virtue Ethics and how it leads to veganism. In Part Two, which we will hear today, Carlo tells me why veganism should not endorse lab-grown meat and whether it’s problematic to consume plant-based replicas of animal products. You can hear the entire interview at At the end of today's episode, I'll also briefly explain some of the reasons why I'm not going to get the coronavirus "vaccine" (although I won't have time to go into all of the reasons), and I'll also talk about the health benefits of a whole-foods plant-based (vegan) diet.
